Thanks for the Welcome mate
I understand what you are saying. But Holden manages it somehow! All the Commodores getting around in a fairly similar awesome Gold colour.
Same with the bodykit (Side skirt kit) etc. Which you have to fork out a lot extra for. When you get it standard on the cheaper, quicker and more powerfull SS.
Im very passionate towards my Fords but In my Humble opinion the pricing with the XR models isnt as good as it could be.
Fortes/Fairmonts are priced very well and are very well equipped compared to the similar Spec Holdens. Its just the XR models which seem to me to be quite expensive. Then you have to fork out for 17" wheels (on AU1) and the extra skirt kit just to match the SS.
This is just how I feel at the moment.
I look forward to your comments.
