Yeah, I'm with Peter on this one. The F6 front spoiler is too low for day to day use in shopping centre parks, schools etc. If you fuss over the GT-P now then the F6 will be just as bad, if not worse being possibly newer. Seats are better than the GT-P for getting in and out of as you said. I reckon either a Territory Ghia or a Turbo Territory is the way to go.
Despite this, if your still keen on the F6 then I think it's definatley worth the dosh over the XR6T. Another option is a XR5. Better appointed than the XR6T, just as fast i would imagine, massive boot and room for 3 kids (if they are small) and it's $36k- with 18" and Recaro's. I bought a new Zetec for the family run around and it makes an excellent family car (My daughters are only 6-8 however).
