Spewing - Citric Acid not available!!

Just been told Citric Acid isn't available for May build Falcs, after weeks of tooing and frowing on wether to go for it or not then finally saying yep, I can't damm well get it if I wan't a car in May.

I reckon Ford ought to give me a freebie upgrade to Phantom :)
might go the blood orange now though.

The info came from my friend who is a Ford sales manager, he didn't believe it himself when the local Ford area manager told him so called Melbourne. I assume it also includes GTs as they come out of the same sausage factory :)

If you have one on order, get the dealer to chase it up for you.

Just been told manual transmissions are in short supply due to something like 80% of Falcs being auto, unless you want to wait. Can get a blueprint manual and possibly a Blood Orange at the moment but thats it

i ordered a citric acid xr8 ute.. its in the process of getting built now.. its in the MAY batch and its citric acid!
i dont know how true this is but i would suggest if you like the colour get it!
go to the dealer and see how true this is.

the day i seen the colour at the MMS i knew i had to order it, i loved it.

some people hate it, some people love it.
just like the decision between the turbo and 8..
it comes down to personal choice.

3 weeks to get my ute!!!
CANT WAIT!!

XLS good choice with the colour, I happen to love it and it seems that when people see it in the flesh they like it too.

Your car is a April build so is OK. Its May builds that are apparently affected.

AUForte..

yeh, im 19 and on P plates.

im pissed off that every one gets shi tty when i say this.
why? are people jelous because thay have older cars and see a P PLATER driving a brand new BA XR8 ute?
i dont know.

i work hard for my money and therefor can spend it on what ever i want to, with out people having a say about it.

if im in a position to upgrade to a new ute at this age, good luck to me.

and if its power to weight ratio for a p plater your going to refer about well then yes i have an exemption.

cheers
