Ive been offered an AU1 '99 update falcon with exactly ther same amount of kms as mine (90k) and in immaculate condition. The features this car has over mine are; electric windows, cruise, bit nicer interior and updated Smartshield (instead of Smartlock, or is it the other way around?). Now what do you guys think colour wise, Galaxy or White? The galaxy is a nice dark colour but is a bugger to keep lookin clean. White, what can i say, classy looking and easy to keep looking neat, scratches dont show up as much. I also have the option of borrowing and getting an AU2 V8 Ghia, but that would put me in the vicinity of 15-20k debt where as the Galxy 98 au - White 99 au would be a straight swap with dad as he plans to sell it and can sell mine instead. It would also give me the chance for a blank canvas and an organised mods plan. What you think guys? Keep the Galaxy or go the White?

Keep the Galaxy one mate. Yours is real nice. If you want cruise you can always buy the kit and fit it. Power windows are a bit more difficult to convert though. it's up to you mate, go with what you really want. I hope which ever decision you make you don't end up regretting it.
