Well our fellow FF member ozzyjim has just driven out in his brand new BA XR8 sedan with leather, premium sound and sunroof.

Happy driving Jim!

Hi Mate,

Congrates on your purchase, very very nice ride there. By the way, did you drive down the M4 at around 5:45pm this evening? I may have saw you.

Re: ozzyjims BA XR8

Yes i did do the m4 trip at that time mate, most likely me (i just dont see many red XR8's), pretty weird hey:). I stuck to the left and middle lane as i just stepped out of a rexy and this is a huge/powerful car that i have to get used to.

Cheers
Jim

Re: ozzyjims BA XR8

Good stuff Jim, bet your happy with the purchase

It will only get better too, the engine really does loosen up past 10,000km's and gets better

Is it auto or manual?

Run her in good then see what she runs at the strip!
