New Car Help

Well ive been looking into getting a new BA today, but I am not sure what to get. The lease on my AUIII will expire in December with the option to keep the car or trade it in. This has put me into a position where if i want to buy a new car, I will probarly have to order it soon so that it arrives sometime around the end of the year.

My options are:

XR6 N/A Auto Sedan - Premium Sound, 18" Alloys, Side Airbags, Reverse Parking Sensors, Rear Power Windows and Limited Slip Diff

XR6 Turbo Auto Sedan - Premium Sound

XR8 Sedan Auto

Or

XR6 Turbo Auto Ute - Hard Lid Cover, Spoiler, 18" Rims, Prestige Sound and Leather.

XR8 Auto Ute - Hard Lid Cover, Spoiler, 18" Rims, Prestige Sound and Leather.

So far ive only been priced on the XR8 at $50 000 less my $5000 GST Credit. They have to work out the fleet discount situation.

What do you guys think, im lost about what I should buy, are the 18" Rims really worth it, or not? I think most of my other options are but I only really have a limit of $50 000 at the most!

Re: New Car Help

Thats a long list of options you got there all i can say is good luck, im having a hard enough trouble deciding the colour for my ute.

Whichever you choose it will be a great car.

Re: New Car Help

I'd be going the XR6T with Premium Sound, probably cose to the quickest, best handling car in the list.

Try buying your current car and selling it privately for a few $$ extra too.

Re: New Car Help

Agreed here.. I'd go the XR6T with premium sound. Hell, either way you go with that list you will get a great car.

I don't think you can get Blueprint any more. I think they have stopped making it.
