So many new members i can't keep up with the stats. What was the configuration of your car? Manual, what colour, options that sort of stuff!

Car is Manual (is there any other option ?)

Body Kit,
Momo bits
Premium Audio

would have liked to go Premium brakes but the dollars didn't quite stretch that far. can always put them on later I guess.

doh, you did ask that didn't you.

Went for the Blue.

Couldn't decide between blue and black, but ended on Blue in the hope that it would be easier to keep clean.

Just to be a pain, what type of blue...the Xr blue or the standard fairmont looking blue, if you get my drift.

The actual color name is "Narooma Blue" this is the replacemet for "Galaxy Blue".

The dealer had cars in both colors in stock - they are very similar, the Narooma blue being slightly brighter.

I think I know the colour you mean. You might kick yourself when they release the new XR (260kw) in Sep-Oct. This may be a collector's edition. ooops I let the cat out.

Yeah I know, didn't know of the rumored "limited edition" when I ordered it.

But there is always something on the horizon, if you sit back and wait for what's coming next ...

In any case it's a fair bit more grunt than what I have now ;)

Both ;)

I am currently running a EB II S 4.0 (on LPG)

Somewhere around 140 KW so 220 KW gives me around 50% increase in power.
