This was a post i made on other forum but i was interested to see what was everyones thoughts were on this point.
On the subject of interiors. I'm looking at $56000 for xr8 on the road with p/sound,side luv bags, rear parking sensors.
The car is fantastic, the dash layout, consol and all controls excellant,but one thing i did notice was the quality of the carpet, the lack of plush velour on the doors and the hard plastic plates on the back of the front seats look cheap.
Now i'm only comparing to past xr models el and au series. My el2 has what looks like a loop type carpet which is also on the doors.Most of the au series i have seen have plush velour on the doors skins and the seat backs are finished with the same upholstery as the rest of the seat.
Now this is only a minor gripe and not really that, just something i've noticed.
Has anyone else noticed the same thing since upgrading from the older models?
Also my wife pointed out that for the 56grand that we will spend on the xr8 we could have a 220kw v8 fairmont ghia with all the trimmings.
Made me think twice, but only for a second
