Mate good to see you have fully converted.
When all the carry on was going on in the early months of this year, before Ford provided the clutch fix and the reflash, there were so many people on the forums saying how disappointed they were about the typhoon. There were a few of us actual owners saying.... ok they might not be rockets on the drag strip but boy they they are just perfect as a long distance Cruiser. I put on a post about a trip my son and I did to Albany over the christmas hols. Like all the magazine reviews say the in gear acceleration of these cars is superb. And THAT was the standard car.
Of course with an Xtreme phoon you can have your Cake and eat it
She is still a beautiful long distance cruiser AND a rocket when you need her.
I am not trying to bag the GT boys, they are beautiful cars with so much Heritage behind them and I would love to own one as well, but I am not a Lotto winner
but the way I see it is the GT's invoke the reaction WOW.... look at that! where the Typhoon at the moment (especially if its been Xtremed) the reaction is WOW ..... wtf was that!
Welcome to the phoonatic clan mate it just gets better and better
