Woohoo!

Picked up the XR6 today, and I'm a happy, happy boy!! :D :D :D

It's going to take me a little time to get used to the extra power this baby has over the old one. I've already had the backend WAY out being a little aggressive around a corner, but it won't be long before I've settled in. Tried taking some digital snaps, but there wasn't enough natural light, and the flash was rather ineffective, so I'll grab some tomorrow and post them in the Members Ride board.

The stereo is great, and I feel much better knowing the gear is Pioneer, being a fan of this brand of audio/video stuff. :thumbup:

The car sounds nice winding it up in 1st/2nd, though I do miss the note of the old beast. With that in mind, I'm wondering what mods are best first. Naturally, I'd want to keep to mods that won't affect the warranty while that is in effect, but after that, it's open slather. Someone mentioned Tickford use mild steel exhausts, so perhaps a header/exhaust upgrade is the best thing to do first.

Plan to get some good driving done over the weekend to 'become one' with the car. R.I.P. VenomS, long live VNMSXR! :D

Thumbs up

Venom S

How does it feel to be enjoying the niceties of remote keyless entry, power windows and handbrake next to your left hand? Not to mention stero controls on the wheel.
