biggrin F6 are on delivery

Received a call from my dealer today to tell me the F6 is on a truck on its way to sunny Brisbane. Should take delivery early next week.

Has anyone in Melbourne seen their F6 arrive at their dealer yet????

Re: F6 are on delivery

don't know if it was a delivered Typhoon, but i saw one today on Punt Rd in Melbourne on the way home.

In shockwave??? (new light blue).. looks real nice, the new front bat really gives it such a more aggressive look.

I think I followed the same one... down Swan Street before it turned onto Punt Road. I thought it looked the goods in the blue.

MyF6,

You're probably the lucky few to get it that early. Make sure you post some pics and give us a good review. What colour did you get and did you get the GT stripes?

GT Stripes are unavailable, hence the name GT stripes... but that light Blue one is a company car and it parks in the carpark every day near the front door... drool!!!!! They go like the clappers!!!!! If only I was a manager!!

Are you telling me that if you ask for GT stripes from a dealer they won't sell it to you?
If so why do I see so many XR6T's and 8's with them on?

Re: F6 are on delivery

The XR's get Dealer fitted stripes from independent Vinyl/Signwriters if customers request them, the only official factory stripes are for GT/GT-P and nothing else. I personally think the charm of the Typhoon is it's understatement, just like an M5 Beemer is a sledgehammer in Sheep's clothing, so is the Typhoon compared to the GT bulge and stripes of the V8's (which look good on the 8's because of the whole "excess" of having an 8. Each to his own, but Typhoon is officially unavailable with stripes, you have to get it done yourself.

Zetec,

Point taken. Would you still drool over a white Phoon with blue stripes then coz that's what I'm intending to get? :)

Re: F6 are on delivery

I'd be a fool not to drool over ANY Typhoon!! But personally, I just like the dark wheels and no stripes/no bonnet bulge combo, understated. That's the way my Focus is, lowered, stock rims, tinited window, nothing stands out, it just looks secretly meaner and keener. The sleeper look is my thing, but I think For also left the stripes off to differentiate it from GT. At the end of the day if a Pink Typhoon with green rims and yellow stripes floats your boat, all that matters is that the HSV's and Wrexies are looking at it from behind...!!

Re: F6 are on delivery

New Oak Ford in Melbourne is "launching" the MKII GT/P and Typhoon this comming Tuesday night. I spoke to the guy I bought my car from, he said he can't get enough stock to have a showroom model of the F6... Next car he can get is Feb 2005... All allocated cars had been pre-sold. Looks like it'll be popular!
