Brand New XR8 - The Downfall
Okay just before you take out your reply shotguns hearme out
The car is Awesome, i got Blood Orange, BA XR8, Fully optioned (minues the roof :( )
Anywas the car is very responsive, good fuel efficiency for an 8, im gettig on average 11p/100km although at times the fuel gauge goes down alot faster than i would like it, but hey it comes with the teritory i guess.
Anyways if there were to be any improvements in a series II, i believe they should do something about the Doors, and the roof, I have an Audi A4 2002 model, and the roof in that has a lot more to offer (including the sun viser setup), the BA XR8 without a roof looks like a massive white footbll field with one umpire (dome light) standing in the middle of it and the visers are nothing special, no lights or anything. The Doors are very solid, they feel great but could be improved, they dont offer any arm rests for the passengers and with the leather option i would have expected some more "cow hide" on the door.
None the less, I love the car, me being the driver i got the premium ICC and the Gorgeous detailed dashboard so i got no complaints just cant be bothered with Ford haters picking on these little bits.
Im still running in the thing now (302km) and still going, not giving ti to much, i take it up to 3K rpm at times but not full throttle and havent gone hard off the lights yet, the Bulge and its Burble appear to be getting louder everytime I start the baby up
All in All, the BA is a masterpiece with minor inperfections
I wish yous al the same oppurtunity i have
Take - it - Easy (too 200kmh haha0
PS Will post pics soon
