My First Car AUII Futura

I finaly got to pick up my new car last Wednesday arve. Its a Winter White AUII Futura with the usual, cruise, front power windows, bootlip crap and ugly 16" alloys they have. I plan to put a T3 TS50 body kit on it, cat back exhaust, some different alloys and get the little dings in the paint fixed and the friggin 4 holes from the bloody car kit in the console part. The tyres are practically brand new! Even a spare alloy! Drives better than the EF and EL i'm used to driving all the time. The only thing i'm not happy with is the friggin sunvisors! You cant fold them back up enough towards the glass to get it so it just blocks out the sun and have max vision of the road. Let me know what ya's think. The pictures aren't that great but I will take some better ones once I get the couple little dings fixed and polish it up.

Re: My First Car AUII Futura

G'Day AUsome,

Well done, nice pick up mate

Yeah the sunvisors suck on the AU's, I am 6'-3" and when I put the sunvisor down I can't see stuff all. Now what I do is undo the sunvisor from the clip and adjust it up and I can see the road. Try that AUsome.
