biggrin Did it, with a bulge

Blue printed, softamatic, with 18km only.

Amazing, absolutely amazing, a murderer car.

Uses less petrol than the older (beloved) XR8. pics to come soon. Good on you Ford.

The sales man was the worst part of the story!

:s4:took me ages to shrink my avatar to the allowed size, will do it once the weather is dry and I get some sunny pics.

Guys, whoever wants to buy a new Ford, wait until the car is available. Salesman gave me the $hits delaying delivery date day after day. They give good prices at P Warren, Warwick farm, wish I did it from there.

One thing I'm sure about, the take off just by stepping on it will leave everything behind. Don't know about the XR6T, but it just can't beat the 410NM at 1000rpm of the Boss.(I assume the torque is slightly similar to the 290 engine).

Smooth,, sooo smooth. Little too quiet but roars nicely when revved to 3500, I won't go any deeper until the 1500km or so.

Fuel economy is amazing, very happy with that. The only thing they did wrong was to make the powersteering heavier, still trying to get used to it.

Can't imagine how the pemium sound would be like, the basic one is fantastic.

That police officer almost twisted his neck staring at the "bulge"!!! Long live the Boss.
