2nd BA in 2 weeks
Well Mrs Zeke's BA XT is very nice with its extensive options. I have decided to go for an XR6T for myself. The problems are:
Hers is in venom, which looks great in the XR's and is my favourite colour - can we really get the same colour? Or do I have to go with my second choice - merc silver? Haven't seen any white XR's but have always seen white as boring and can't see why this should be any different in XR's. Don't see any other colours as real exciting.
The leather seats are nice but the matching door trim is taxi drab. Any easy fixes?.....000
Can a good motor trimmer do a central rear armrest in an XR? If so would it be cheapest to buy the basic bits from a fairmont etc and retrim them to match?
Can boot security be achieved? I often carry important stuff in a briefcase in the boot of my current car - major dramas if lost! But the seat release levers can't be disabled. Again, would it be a big ask for a competent motor trimmer to add some locks that could only be released from inside the boot?
OK, these are only relatively minor considerations, but I really value the colllective wisdom on this site in providing worthwhile opinions.
PS. In spite of being a long term V8 fan ( I'm the wrong side of 50) the xr6t blew me away on the first test drive. The power, torque, balance - but most of all, the gorgeous exhaust note - if I order one and it doesn't have the same exhaust note, I'll be furious! - I have heard there is some variation in this factor - any info anyone?
