biggrin Finally My TURBO Ute has arrived

Got a call from my dealer this morning telling me that my ute arrived yesterday afternoon. I am over the moon. All going well I may be in it by the weekend. A few bits to be put on the car the pre delivered and registered.This has been a wait I'm sure will be worthwile. According to FPV it's the first one made ( Apart from FEV's).

Well Lads after having ordered my manual Turbo Ute Nearly two months ago I have just about had enough and after getting a good quote on a new SS ute I am about to switch to the dark side. I love fords always have but just not able to wait any longer. My dealer is not even able to give me an on line date or a SIDO. This coming from a man who works for one of FORDS biggest OE suppliers. Uncle Geoff I hope your listening as I doubt I will be the only one who cancels due to being unable to wait. When I first orederd my car I was told by the dealer it was scheduled for Nov build with Dec delivery. Now I,m told January build at the very latest. And all of this is still with the possibilty of a 2% price rise. If I am not protected from that then I will not even be able to afford the extra as my novated lease only just covers the cost of the car as per the current deal I have. Sorry to dribble on I am just so disheartened to see Turbo sedans being delivered but no UTE's on the horizon. FORD's on line help people are not much help either they just keep on saying ( Some time early next year) . Glad to get that off my chest. Hard to read all the journo write ups about the turbo ute yet can,t get my dream car. GP this is FORD faithfull ringing the bell here. Please heed the call.

Now the proud owner of an AU xr8 220... OHHH YeAh

Congrats

Hate to say it but it is not the first Turbo ute on the road. the Daily Telegraph ran a Sydney MS competion and some lucky bugger near Newcastle got it.

But has he actually had it delivered to him? Or just been announced as the winner?

Race rubber is not kidding. His narooma blue xr6 turbo manual ute with 18's and prestige sound is the first ute to be built as per ordered by a dealer. no other dealer has an xr6t ute built in december for a customer. They are all january builds. Congratulations on your new ute Race Rubbber and i hope you have many happy years of motoring in it and i am sure you would be gratefull to uncle Geoff for making this all happen for you. Cheers.
