biggrin Finally got my XR8!!

Hi guys/gals,

After running around in an XF for years while saving for my dream car, I finally got it! :s5 I'm extremely happy with it and can't seem to stop driving it around with a big grin on my face, and not to mention the sound of that V8!

Have uploaded some pics to share to all. Enjoy!

Well done dude. I know the feeling too. Over 8 years in my XF and my XR8 dreams came true late December. She looks great. Sits nice, great colour, love the tinting. Enjoy. There is nothing like a V8.

Thanks guys. To answer some questions:

It is a AUII XR8 with what looks like a dual 2.5" exhaust that joins at the tip, slotted rotors and tinted windows.

The smile is definately still there, and no, there is nothing like that V8 sound at full throttle

Re: Finally got my XR8!!

I'm missing a V8 in mine, can I borrow yours? he he. Good to see another Venom XR driver on the forums. Well done.
