Re: The XW

Hey Fordy,
Have you decided on what car your getting yet? I drove a BA XR8 ute the other night, scared the hell out of me! Its got so much power, and its right there! Ive been im my mates XR6T sedan, and its got power, but you have to wait for it. The ute was unbeliveable!

I got back to the house, and told mum how quick it got to 100, and she just looked at me and said "it gets to 160 pretty quick too!"

Yeah buddy i have decided and you'll find out in a few weeks, im not saying anything till keys are in my hands. And yes the xr8 utes are prettty quick but after driving so many hot xw's and xy's the ute doesnt feel as quick, the rush the old v8's give you is nothing compared to the new ones, to me nothing beats the rough idle and roar of an old 351.
