Hahaaha.

Well judging by the dealerhip I walked into today, I would say we have sold about 2, but the salesman said he had a 2 page list of pre-sold BA's on back order. So its all good.

He told me not to expect any Turbo's to be available till about February so initial sales have been very good!

Well at work the showroom was full of poeple. I asked one of the sakleman and he still wasnt giving out BA broschures. Got the Ute broschure but thery still had AU broschures. Guess they wanna flog off the last few AU's left. It'll be touhg becasue so many poeple were looking at the BA's and so many sad looking AU's were parked outside, looking to be traded in would be my bet.

I spoke to the guy who sold me my XR and he said they have ordered 20 xr6's. They are the biggest sellers of XR's in Qld. He is expecting the turbo's to arrive in 3 weeks and has written me into his diary for a test drive when they arrive. I can't wait.
