How about Robbo's 'XR6T in Europe' article they promised last month. Any news of that?

Hmmm

Re: March 04 "Wheels" mag

There is no surprise winner - I got my subscription copy yesterday. I had a quick flick through. The surprises to them were that the Avalon did better than they expected against the Camry and that the Commodore Acclaim came so close to beating the Futura. However, the Futura did win. Their one main comment re the Futura was that they would definitely put the Sports Suspension on it. I've got that on my Fairmont V8, so I'm happy!
