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
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?
