Options Options Oh the options.. (BA)

Guys,
(Second go at this post after an unfortunate accident by Laminge.... :-O)
The inital post was something like this...

Re options....
It is hard to decide what to go for.
After shopping for a BA XR...
Here are a few observations..

Phantum.. Yes please... Not sure on the Phantum interior. Go the leather of the Grey trim...
The leather looks and feels tops...
Momo Wheel... Now we have a choice in colour.. Red, Blue or black leather. It is much more meatier than the normal XR wheel.. Very nice.. but an additional $700... Go for it..
Scuff plates.. Yep. Tick that...
17 or 18's.. Have not seen the 18's. 17s will do.. Cant justify the extra $$ now and later for the rubber...
Premium sound.. Definately. The colour TFT looks trick..
Manual vs Auto. Have stirred a Manual XR6N/A. The gear leaver is now in a much nicer spot.. .. Yes thanks.

Yes, choices indeed. That's why when I looked into it my XR8 would have cost more than a GT........

Yeah i find that abit optimistic of that $1 18inch alloy deal. But must say it's good to see Ford upping up the options list for people to custom there car even out of the dealer.

AP,
Off the topic, good to see yourself joining the Half Dozen (tm) brigade. ROFL

Mattyc,
I was refering to the Sedan 18" wheels. I did not price them. Would prefer to spend the money on Sunroof or Leather...

Did you remember to tick LIMITED SLIP DIFFERENTIAL?

I think the non turbo XRs don't come standard with them.
Trust me, get it now (says $360 on the web) or it'll cost u a fortune aftermarket. I got a new carrier for my car aftermarket and it cost me $750 and it was still worth every dollar. Every rear driver NEEDS one. Less unintended wheelspin, more traction, more SIDEWAYS!!!

Traction sux.
