1000's new XR6

Heya all !!!

I picked it up 3 days ago and got some piccies done this morning.

I can't get the smile off my face (hope nobody I know dies in the near future coz I'll still be smiling at the funeral which may offend).. it's magnificent to drive.. goes nice and quick, handles like a dream and looks like a rave-party inside at night. I can't stop driving it !!!!

Re: 1000's new XR6

mmmm, nice. Alloy pedals in an auto. That's something you can't get on a Subaru.

Re: 1000's new XR6

1000 is right, I couldn't stop driving mine the moment I got my XR6. Did you order tinted windows instead of security alarm?

Re: 1000's new XR6

Yep, got the windows tinted.. I coudn't see the point of an alarm.

My list of options were: premium sound, side airbags, limited slip diff and xr floor mats. The only other thing I wished I'd specced is the sport sterring wheel but the budget only went so far.

The tint job is pretty shit so in a few weeks I'm taking it back for a retint on two of the windows.. one has a scratch and the other has some small air bubbles that haven't settled down.

Re: 1000's new XR6

Is that Shockwave?

LSD was a good call - makes "power oversteer" lots of fun. Does the Mk II have traction control?
