G'day Ian,

I've just taken delivery of an AU11 TE-50 myself. Manual, Premium brakes, FTR blue. How long have you had yours? What are your impressions of the car? Any concerns or problems?

Ian,

Did you end up selling this? :) I'm in the market for one if anyone has one in good condition. $341 from carbra is a little steep, sight unseen.

Alternatively, anyone in Perth got one on an AUII XR6 that wouldn't mind me checking out their bra??

Cheers,

Simon....

guys you're wasting your money on car bras. They really don't work that well. I know many people that have had them and the stones etc hit with such force that that the paint is still cracked and sometimes sticks to the bra itself. Thats why people with hot rods etc dont have them or get them made. SAVE YOUR MONEY. Plus they look like S*%T.

I have a SMALL dent on the lower portion of my bonnet caused by (I can only assume) a stone (more like a rock) hitting it.

Last time it was in for a service, I got the guys at Centre Ford to arrange a quote to get it repaired. Roll on $370 - bloody amazing. If a $340 car bra can stop this occuring (and it will again, I drive down to Augusta regularly), then IMO it's money well spent.

I don't care if it looks like shit for a round trip duration of hours once a month :-)

Again, if anyone in Perth has one, or anyone has one on a AUII XR, please contact me.

Cheers,

Simon....
