Some of us are right in the middle of purchasing an XR8. Reviews are of particular interest to us right now.

There are some insiders here on this Forum that seem to get Wheels and Motor details early. There's no harm in asking.

If there are insiders who get early info I haven't seen or heard about it...
I am looking at a XR8 but will wait like the rest of the world.

I ask the person at the shop and they say they get it that day like 8:30 am. I am asking because some people get the mag 2 days early and I want an XR8 review.

Drove an XR8 last week,acid rush,460,manual.......it goes like the clappers. Only 45k on the clock,so didn't open it right up.
Nice note..not as good as the ute in the ad...however more than the AU2/3.
Handling excellent,driver comfort excellent,vision..still the A pillar problem/rear view mirror problem but to a lesser degree..the mirror seems to have been raised a bit. all in all a huge improvement over the last model.

FORD RULES OK

Thanx for the review, i am too waiting to here times of the XR8, as i believe it could be the only way to get people to realise that the weight may not play that bigger roll!

Losing my license wasn't the smartest thing i have ever done, but now i can save my ass off and buy a V8!!
