Heard my first turbo today,

Well i took my XR6 VCT in for a service today, or should i say 10 warranty jobs. Anyways when i was waiting outside i seen this brand new XR6 turbo being delievered in Acid Rush. Anyways thisarvo when i went to pick my car up, the Turbo had been registered and had been tinted. Looked pretty good but i couldnt believe it when i noticed it was a company Demo for some boss of the service department to drive around in. I thought they wouldnt allow that as they have so many customers waiting for the turbos. Anyways it was an very nice car, also had the factory sunroof.

They sound pretty good. Yes it seems pretty strange, would think the dealershipo would want to get Turbos to paying cutomers before giving them to employees.

UMMM. If the dealership did not have demo's, how would you be able to drive it before you bought it? I suppose the XR6T is that good, you don't need to drive before you buy.

10 Warranty Jobs, well here we go

1. 2 New key fobs and new remote locking sensor.
2. Rattle in both front doors.
3. Recall due to cooling problem, this was done on all AU2's excluding Fairmont/Ghia.
4. Brakes had to be worked on, had to replace one part.
5. Windscreen rubber had to be replaced.
6. Black door protection mould had to be replaced.
7. Steering had to have a full alignment, i only had to pay for half that for some reason.
8. Side Indicator Lenses had water in them, had to be replaced.

So yeah sorry there was only 8, i thought there was 10. Nevermind, all is fixed now and its going great. LOVE IT.
