Smile It's FINALLY arrived!!!!!

Well after a 5 and a half month wait for my XR6 Turbo to arrive, it's finally HERE!!!!

I ordered the car on Feb 12, 2003 and it arrived at the dealers today (30/07/03)

The car is:-

XR6 Turbo Manual
Blood Orange
Herrod Suspension
Premium Sound
Side Air Bags
Sports Steering Wheel
Window Tint
Tow Pack
XR Mats
XR Scuff plates

I should take delivery of it next Wednesday!! It's off to the window tinters tomorrow and then to Herrod's for the suspension on Monday.

I have attached a pic (hopefully) of the car pre-delivery!!

Re: It's FINALLY arrived!!!!!

Well, the car finally arrived TODAY!!!! Sensational. The car still needs to go to Herrods for the suspension to be done but that should be next week. I have clocked up 100kms since picking it up today, Fantastic!!

To those that are waiting, ITS WORTH IT!!!!!!!

I'll post new pics after the suspension is done!!
