I just baught my first car!

Welp.... After working in a PC store between school for 3 years and getting a 12k loan from dad, I can finally say I am a proud owner of a '99 AU XR6.

She is Liquid silver, has 50k on the clock, standard XR Turbine rims(which make me sick), no body kit(*CRY*), Sony Xplode deck and the rest is history ;p. I picked the car up for $25k drive away with 2 year warranty. I felt that was a decent price, however I am not 100% sure now.

Anyhow she is in fantastic condition and I cant wait to pick her up in a few days. Now I need to start saving for those series 3 AU Tickford rims and the Rebel series body kit =0.

Cheers!

Congrats and how lucky you are, not many people can buy their first car such as an AUXR6 usually a clapped out POS is all they can afford. You should be proud of yourself.
Happy motoring with your first car. :s5

Well as a comparison my first car was a 1982 KA Laser. So I can say you've done pretty well!
