mmmmmmmmmm........... i seriously wonder! :)
Hey Snavy, choices choices while they're all excellent from XR6T upto GT range. It all happened one night when the XR needed $2600 to fix the A/C and another $1000+ to fix muffler(after having it lowered:)+ the silly AAMI insurance jumping well over $2500 a year!
You see it's not a very economical idea to run a V8 out of warranty.I think the new XR6T will fit just fine regards insurance, the trusty IL6 and lower fuel consumption than a V8.
I wouldn't pay extra 9Ks for 20KW! specially the torque flat curve of the new XR6T will kick serious arses! 2 seconds faster on 5th gear 80-120 for God's sake!it will kick genIII butt from a stand still start when no revving in auto.
So no XR8, but GT??now you're talking..
Wanna know a secret? I knew that almost 12 months ago from my mate working at Ford;GTHO supercharged 5.4L is coming!Even GT owners will feal "impotent,lol" when the final Boss arrives soon.
Damn, the XR6T almost outperforms the STI in wheels!!!!Damn!
Had almost 2 hours drive looking for XR6 NA at dealers, Found one white at Peter Warren (Liverpool-Casula?), and maaaan it looked horny.
I followed a very humble XT today, the driver was nuts I could hardly catch up with him in my car:)it looked soooooooo good to resist. I hope the buggers at Ford dealers tomorrow don't wreck my day and offer a good trade in price!I hope,,,
