XFSVO becomes AUI XR6 VCT

Well I finaly took the plunge !!!!!!!!!!!!

On Friday I picked up my new car.

Black 1999 XR6 VCT
5 Speed Manual
17" Rims
Tinted Windows
45,000 kms

I got if for a very good price, private sale.

It is a huge jump that I made from XF to AU, and I can't beleive
just how good this car is, compared to the 13 years older XF.

It is an absolute joy to drive, and I would recommend it to anyone. The steering and suspension make you feel almost invinceable on windy roads. The IRS gives unbelievable grip and confidence. The clutch feels very heavy but I'm getting used to it. I am also getting used to little luxuries like cruise control and steering mounted radio controls etc.

Oh yeah the performance is wicked.

I took some photos on the weekend, hopefully I will be able to post them soon.

I will put the XF up for sale - see "The Marketplace"

How do I change my forum name from XFSVO?

<<Smiling from ear to ear>>

DK and/or John will be able to change your user name. As for the car, sounds very nice. The XD-EA were truly the dark days of the Ford Australia world. It's amazing how much better cars are these days.

Glad you like the IRS on the AU. If my car truly has 300kW, I can assure you the IRS still grips hard with all that power. Shows how truly well developed the Falc IRS is! Now go tell your friends!
