frown The time has come.......

Well, as of Tuesday next week, I will no longer be eligible to be a member of the E-series Owners Club :(

I have traded my 1992 Fairmont in on an 2000 AUII Forte, which I pick up on Tuesday. I got a GREAT deal on my car, I got $4650 trade in on my EBII Fairmont with 166K's. So all up the AU is costing me $10,350, which isn't a bad price for country NSW. The AU is schmick as, I love the black interior!

The EB has been a great car and would recommend them to anyone! I have decided to upgrade now while I can still get something for my current car. Mind you it only cost me $5000 with my EA as trade-in. Hopefully, the AU will bring a few years of reliable, comfortable motoring.

Re: The time has come.......

Yeah, for the moment, unfortunately I'll be pretty broke paying off the loan for the bloody thing! And insurance is going to cost me about $1000 a year.

I test drove it today and they are just so nice to drive! The EB is a magnificent car to drive as well, but the AU just doesn't compare!!! It doesn't have all the little extras my car has like cruise, climate control and all that, but it still has power windows. I'm sure I'll manage to get used to it! lol

Congrats on the upgrade matey, the AUs are beautifully engineered cars. And you'd even still qualify as a member, we can bend the rules (6).
