Hi Rob, welcome aboard. Sounds like a sweet machine. It is forum policy however for you to show us pictures of your machine.

Only kidding :)

Cheers,

Gday Charlie, I think Hypno,s gonna report on the Typhoon b4 most of us. Anyone would be silly to not at least audition it, I think for $55k odd, and with a bit of a discount, if you can get it, it may tempt even a few others off here. As far as GT vs XR6t, I've found the instant torque/grunt with afew revs on board, quite intoxicating, the sound, brutaly sexy over 3 grand, and the high speed handling, holding its line etc better than xr6t, also if your after a standout car looks wise this is obviously it, asked my wife the same question, she said "it just looks better, not as common" just a new accessory for her like a handbag I think. They just don't get it. Yeh I love it more than xr6t. I fear for xr6t drivetrain in the short/medium term especially modded ones, anyway Cheers Rob.
