XR6T upgrade . . . a tough decision

After driving around my new XR6T for 1 month, I've finally decided to put in an order for a BA GT.

Its not that Im not happy with the XR6T, it does everything and more. The XR6T is the fastest and smoothest car I've ever driven.

I took the new XR8 for a spin the other week and it felt like I was back in the saddle, so to speak. I previously owned a AU XR8.

I don't think the BA XR8 went or felt any quicker than my current 6 Turbo. I think I like the rumble and general feeling of the 8 compared with the 6 T.

I've already been told I'm mad for selling it so soon and loosing $9k in the process.

I'll be selling my XR6T for $51k (Factory Roof, Auto, Prem Sound & GPS Sat nav. 1 month old.

off topic, that picture looks effing awesome! just the way its sitting, and the sunroof, really sets it off.

alas... it's not like you're changing over to the dark side, so good luck with the GT, i know you will enjoy it.
