My XR4 Laser

This is my new XR4 Laser. I bought this last weekend as a second car to get me to and from work.

The XR4 is misleading as it's not enhanced by Tickford, it's something the dealer put on as part of a pack.

It's a standard LXi, the XR4 pack includes the alloy wheels, wing, electric sunroof, power windows and mirrors.

It's a lovely little car to drive, very nippy and handles extremely well, you wouldn't think it was a hatch. My only bitch is that it has drum rear brakes and cheap carpet.

Might rice it up with side skirts one day!

Sweet car... for a second car, its absolutely mint. I know what you mean about the XR4 part, here in Wagga they badge everything with 4 cylinders as XR4's - everything from Festivas thru to Mondeos. Still... looks sweet and says "I'm not a breadbox" - not that your sweet Laser needs any help getting that across!

The mags almost look like mini versions of the AU2 Tickfords I have on my car....

Nice car!

Nice car! And probably the best-built Ford ever sold here.

Also good to see a bit more variety here in the showroom.
