I came VERY close to ordering white myself Chubbz. the XR looks incredibly classy in white, really gives it that expensive Euro look, and it's SO EASY to keep a white car clean, you've got to love a colour that is that easy to maintain.

nah costs too much to replace the rubber, i had a look at one with the 18's and yeah im not paying 600 bucks a tyre.
Firstly, congrats on your purchase man. Another new XR6 buyer to join the club. I'm presuming you got the N/A XR6 (I'd be shouting from the rooftops if I got the TURBO!). If you did get the N/A model, the one must have you need to look at is the rear power windows.
This is a personal opinion, but I think the door trims look strange with power switches on the front, and winders on the rear. Also, you only get the rear grab handles on the door trims with power window switches. winder only trims just have the small arm rest.
As to the 18" wheels, don't believe the gainsayers who tell you you'll need to pay that much for replacement rubber down the track. Good quality 18" rubber can be had from as little as $250-$270 now. As the rim size becomes more common with both Falcon and Commodore having models Factory Fitted with that diameter rubber, it will continue to get cheaper and cheaper in price.
You're already paying the same for 17's now that you were paying for 15's four years ago! If you can afford it, I urge you to reconsider.
