Delivery date postponed!

Estimated delivery on the F6 went from "early October" to "15 October" to ....... now "3rd November"!

I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas ;o)) .. the close it gets the longer it's taking!! (Even went to drown my sorrows in the fridge...and it's full of lite beer! lol)

Just a quick note on the F6 at the SMS. The car overall is stunning. Just a couple of minor things I didn't like: The new oil press and turbo boost gauges look added on and could have been improved, and the leather trim was fair but not as classy as I would have liked. Still minor gripes really.

And for those who were talking about stripes.... there is NO stripe package for the F6. Not available at all as an option.

Re: Delivery date postponed!

I'm glad the stripes arent available. Good move by FPV to not cheapen the GT (although some would argue that stick-ons already cheapen the GT! :) )

It's a shame they arent painted on...

Re: Delivery date postponed!

The car at the show was in silhouette and looked reeeeeeeeeeally hot! It had a sunroof, leather package, sports steering wheel and brembo's .... which is about every option possible. Those brembo's sitting behind the F6 wheels look awesome, but I just can't justify them expense-wise. It was certainly the main attraction at the Ford display (which overall I thought was a little disappointing) and was attracting the most attention. The car was left open too, which was excellent.... got to crawl all over it ;o))

I know it'll be worth waiting for Kerry :o)), I've waited this long, an extra 3 weeks isn't gonna kill me lol, but it's gonna be the longest 3 weeks of my life, i can tell you.
And Jac, keep dreaming hon, you just never know what the future holds. Go hassle your dealer and lay on some charm so he gives you a drive when they get one ;o)) lol. In the meantime at least you've got a beautiful XR to cruise in ;o) ... I've got to drive around in a .....*cough*!

Re: Delivery date postponed!

After seeing the pics of the sillohette I am happy I went with it. I think this thing will look awesome next to the black T3 in the garage. Currently FPV are telling me October 29th for delivery.
