Well I'm finally a Falcon Owner

Hi All,

Im only new to your forum (signed up tonight), but have been watching for a while (im sure we all like watching).

I have just bought a 2001 XLS Ute tonight and thought what better time to sign up than now.

The ute is a fairly standard XLS with Auto Trans, but will no doubt provide some fun from time to time with the Sport Suspension and stuff.

Anyway I'll catch ya all later.

Thanks guys wasn't expecting so many reponses.

Maybe you are a friendly forum.

To all those lurkers out there come on in the water fine.......

Unfortunately its a 6, but once the warrenty is over I hope to get some extra grunt anyway.

Hey anyone know what sort of mods you can do to a 6 b4 ford start getting shitty about the warrenty?

And yeah I will IRC i haven't done that for years. When I was at uni it was popular (back in 1994 I think it was)

hope to see you guys there one night.

Pay particular attention to your rear suspension. I have a XLS and the rear springs have collapsed under a very small load. Now my ute always looks like it is going uphill slightly.
