Holding onto current company car in anticipation.
Provided the car stacks up, I can do the right numbers & the boss doesn't have a cow, I think I'll be in. Won't be ordering prior to release & test drive though.

Heya.

Um, maybe. Turns out I can get a home loan now...I had given up on getting a house due to being single parent....but seems to be all working out. Priority at the moment is then house ahead of car... will have to live with the XR for a while. However, this is not absolute, and all this does is postpone the purchase, not wipe it out....

Just seems that everyone is talking about the F6 here and there, but I havent heard anyone actually planning to buy one, unlike the leadup to the BA and T coming out...

I am definitely going to test drive one though. Plan on test driving a manual GT and the F6 in the same day, if possible....
