Turbo Terrific

I just traded my 2year old awd ghia which I loved and taken delivery of a ghia awd Turbo and all I can say is WOWW If it had a german badge on it you would not begrudge paying twice as much, finish and quality are great Probably not the car for mum and the kids though. only gripe ,they have done away with the automatic dimming rear vision mirror, not sure about fuel use yet but if i was over worried i would not have bought the turbo

Great to hear some feedback on one.

I think fuel use is probably the main concern for people thinking of buying one.

I guess as it's new ,you still havn't had a chance to test it out properly but I would love to hear how you like it after you have owned it for a while as I am tempted to buy one myself. I have an xr6 turbo and just love it but can't help thinking about the extra space of the Terri.

A Typhoon is another possibility too when I am ready to trade the XR6T.

[QUOTE=Big Block Ford]Great to hear some feedback on one.



Re Fuel Consumption When I took delivery it had 45 k's on clock and computer read 35 litres per 100 k now with 250 k's on clock it has dropped to 19.9 and I expect it will come down to around 16 which is what the terri I traded had averaged for 21000 k's The longest trip it has done is all town traffic max 20 k's so too soon to tell but encouraging I'll keep you posted

Re: Turbo Terrific

Dissapointing about the rear view mirror. I also have the Ghia and am thinking of trading up to the turbo. Probably do the deal in October. What colour did you go for ? ANy other options ?

Sat in one at the dealership the other day... much nicer seats that the standard Terri too.

Re: Turbo Terrific

i get my Turbo territory today
was hoping for a ghia but could not convince the Boss to let me have one
settled for the Turbo in black.

Get to park the AUIII XR8 in the Garage and let her grow old gracefully.

I read the Turbo does 7.0 sec to a 100ks
thats better than my XR8 (i think) never been able to time it
