Yes, I have driven the BF XR6T, and i found it extremely niceto drive, although i drove the 6 speed manual and i have to get use to the close gear changes. but the do drive nice. I have heard that with the 6 speed auto they are pretty quick.

I pick mine up in three days.

Damn fine choice of colour Let us know what you think. I gather the new 6 speed auto did nothing for you?

I took an auto BF Turbo for a brief test drive today.

The gearbox is very smooth and the car is quieter in general. Whilst my BF will be a manual, those of you contemplating an auto will not be disappointed.
