Sorry dumb question from the loony bin here, but is Silhoutte black? I agree that white XR's end up looking like cop cars, no bad thing if you own it! As for Venom it seems just to common as well. Any way I'll just go back to looking for a car that isn't biege!

My two cents would be that I wouldn't have a black Au if it was given to me. Lot of work but the colour itself is just not right. I was going to get the same thing until I saw the car and change to Galaxy. Personally I think red is the pick of the white/red option.

My choice is silver. Paint swirls and chips don't show up on this colour as bad as the darker colours. The paints on the current fords just seem too fragile IMO.

I wouldn't go for white as I think you will lose out on the resale value only because of the cop thing. My second choice would be galaxy. I'm not a red car person, but that looks ok also.

so you can see what the various colours look like.

My choice would probably be silver but the handbrake won't let me :( Those colours on the website aren't the same as looking at real metal. That's why I did the Sydney explorer trip yesterday :wink2:

It's a done deal! I get the TE50 5 speed this Friday for 24 hours as a test drive for the XR8. Scooby's lickin' his lips so hard they're sore already :wink2: :p :damack:

Just curious why you didn't go the TE? I think you mentioned someting about the seats, but was there a big price difference between an optioned XR8 and a TE50?
Didn't go TE because the deal was way better on XR after discounts etc. The XR is basically a TE now anyhow!

As for you DOC:
I doubt there'd be much left for you after I've had a go.... ;) Alloy heads would be my first stop!

I think a Synergy 5000 would go well in a Holden Camira with the standard 2.0EI badge on the tailgate :evil2: :evil:

mmmm somehow you've adopted some of my brain cells from somewhere. It's scary to think there's 2 of me running around with the same idea.
