Initial Impressions

Well I picked up my new XR6 last night, and I'm very impressed so far.

Going from a little Daihatsu Charade to this was quite a shock though, and will take quite a while to get used to the extra size and power.

I can say I'm glad to be a member of the club :)

Well I couldn't afford the turbo, but I'm perfectly happy with the one I've got at the moment, had to keep ogling at it in the driveway :)

Yeah, it's a dream :) Well it will be more of a dream once I've got the hang of the clutch

Off to Eastern Creek on Sunday, so looking forward to the drive up there.

That a turbo or an N/A you've got on order?

I was lucky enough to find an XR6 in stock, so took just 4 days to get the options put in, and away I went!

How long have you had yours then? I was slowly starting to get the hang of it by the end of last night.

Taking it out again when I get home from work tonight, hopefully be able to get it sorted.
