The new SR

Well the time came and had to get rid of the Blue AU2 Forte, work replaced it with the most red of red SR Sedan :D (I wasnt upset about that at all), was wondering if the interior of the SR is the same as the Forte now? I gathered the SR was just a Forte with Alloys, Spoiler, Skirts, ABS, colour mirrors, Cruise, exhaust tip. The reason I ask this is the inside of this beast is 100 times better than the old Forte (new one back with blue bits) and is the same as a guys S pack at work.

Yeah must say the interior styling of the AU2's is much nicer that the AU1's. The controls look up market and the stereo is heaps better as well, not to mention the noise refinement levels.

I know the AU S I had, had the same trim as XR6 HP so I'm assuming they were the same. Then again I had the HP motor too.. :D

Why not wait for the AU3 Forte and then add the Havoc kit and the new suspension bits??

my first car at this work was a AU1 S pack, bloody nice car with nice interior and ride act, second was the Blue AU2 Forte and have got to say I really wasnt that impressed by it (compared to the S I mean) now the new SR I think is inbetween, the seats dont seem as good as the original S Au1, but like I said the interior of the SR is alot nicer, one thing that bothers me though its always like you sit on an AU does anyone else feel this? Like riding a bloody horse:p

I love the seats in AU/AU2 i think they are great and a lot better than the commo.

The Trim in the SR is the same trim that is in the XLS Utility.

One criticism of seating in my AU2 - you sit too damn high! I have to crouch down to see past the sunvisor!
