Thumbs up 7 to 180 in 3 Hours

Well it finally happend, today at 3:30pm, I finally got to kick the dealer out, turn off the stereo and drive my Xr6 ute!

From stepping out of a v6 Grand Vitara, after owning all kinds of cars from sport cars to the 4wd, I was ready for anything.

But .. cricky the car is so much fun to drive, Leaving the dealer @ 7km I headed around the shire to do some banking / shopping, the looks you get, the kids just stop, and murmer to there mates (I hope its not "Look at that wanker") but... gez

Got to 100kms on the clock, ran out of dealer fuel and gave her a feed of premium, now we are just getting to know each other.

The seats are great (love the angles it can put you in!!) the power in sports mode is great, the upgraded stereo is nice (will replace the rears with some more doofydoofy ones, but no need for a sub), lights are great, high beam is .. "Bright" and I even resisted the earge to look like all the commadore wankers with the fog lights!!

Anyway, we are just getting to know each other, blueprint and xr go together so well.. the guy at the service station asked 101 questions about it... and this was in my first 100kms!

WHoa! can not wait to go to work... I mean to drive to work tomorrow !!

And from 100 to 180kms were just me killin the enviroment looking for excuses to drive! ))

Pix coming! was too busy driving !!!
