It's Upgrade Time.

Well the time has come to upgrade from the EL to an AU.

I have fallen in love with a Black AU XR8, full Bodykit, Electric Sunroof, and 17" Tickford Mags.
I wasn't looking for another car, but I saw this one parked out the front of the dealers and knew instantly that I had to have it, and if that car falls through, they also have an AU Fairmont Ghia 5.0 that I'll take instead.
So anyway, I have my current wheels for sale 17" CSA Edge, you can have them for $1000, and I'm also going to sell my Cam aswell, Wade 1004@112 you can have it for $100.

Just have to wait til tomorrow now to see if I get the XR8.

edit: Is there something wrong with the Forsale Section, I posted a couple of new ads for the wheels and cam, a few hours ago, but they haven't shown up?

Re: It's Upgrade Time.

Nice work, My next car will be a black AU ghia and nothing else.
But for now the EB stays until I blow the diff, trans and motor. (25 psi anyone)

I hope it all goes through for you.

Don't worry, I will take photo's until the camera burns out from over-use

It looks very similar to this one, just got different wheels and has the bi-plane spoiler.
