My New Ute



I ordered a BA (duh) XR6 Trubo Auto on the Weekend

Leather, Prestige sound, sports bar, sports wheel (not the momo) in Lightning strike.

I CANT WAIT, it will be about 4 weeks I am told

this will be my work car replacing a 250,000km AU futura.

I am Excited.

Great forum by the way.

PS: anyone here from Newcastle NSW with either a stage 1 or 2 APS kit fitted?
I would love to have a look and get your thoughts, it is the main reason I went with the XR6 turbo instead of the XR8, easy, cheap HP that can be removed in 18 months when the car has to go.

Re: My New Ute

Thanks, I cant wait, I havnt even driven one yet
I have ridden in a late 2003 XR8 ute a bit and like it too.

I am getting very anxious(sic) the more I think about it the more I want it.

HURRY UP MISTER FORD DAMN YOU.

PS: not my first XR, I Had a ED XR8 manual with Sprint engine back when they were new, loved it too.

HURRY UP MISTER FORD, DAMN YOU..

Re: My New Ute

I may be biased but the utes are awesome! I love mine!

Must do's: Lower it 30mm, dual CAI, K&N, APS Stage 1/2 (budget dependant) and hose those HSVs at half the price!

Re: My New Ute

Sounds like an awesome machine.

The sports bars look quiet good on the utes, nothing wrong with being different since most do actually go for the hardcovers nowadays.
