Well im 18 years old and I want to buy a new BA Falcon, dont ask about finances because im not paying for it, its going to be a company car.

I have about 40 grand to spend i think. So what should i get,

XT 5.4 V8 Auto with 17 inch alloys
Futura with 17 inch alloys and spoiler
XR6 NA with Premium sound

XLS ute with 5.4 V8 in it.
XR6 ute with Hard cover 18 inch alloy and six stacker
XR6 Turbo ute with no optoins?????

Hold on....you are 18 and getting a 40k company car!.???????????
What the???

Ok, overlooking that XT 5.4 for either sedan or ute would be my preference. If a 6 is more appropiate due to age etc, XR6 N/A all the way.

Turbo+ 18yrs + Bloke + Fun + Crash...(generally speaking) No offense BigbadAu, I'm sure you personally are a great driver.

I agree with CDAA about staying away from the big bad Turbo & V8's at your tender age.

The XR6 N/A looks great, drives well, has a big back seat (do you have a girlfriend :) and has plenty of safety features.

Party on d00d (in a responsible manner of course)
