Hey folks, just dropped the old XF off, she is now gone sadly...but to keep me happy i pick my new car up tomorrow!! How happy am i!! Was looking for a while till i stumbled across a EF Falcon Futura, white, 5 speed manual, all the fun stuff, as in power windows sound system blah blah blaa, and to top it off XR wheels. Test drove it and fell in love!!! Will take pics and post them up asap!!! Then i just need to decide what im going to do in the way of mods!!

well just got home, dad picked her up for me this morn, i had to work, it was either let him go get it (bout an hour away, in the bush!!) or wait till friday when i could get off work to go!! so i have had it all of 3 hours and i am so more than impressed with her its just not funny!! The car just feels so great, love the maual box, as soon as i saw the add on the net for it at the dealer i emailed and had a deposit on it pending test drive!! and well the rest is history!!


SPHELL.....paid $8900 with 12 month ford warranty less trade in for my old slapper XF. Its (only) got 130 on the clock...barely run in!!!

i think im off for more fun!!! this smile wont be leaving for a while!!

very nice indeed, even managed to get the lights in the brake ducts - saves you extra work and gives a much needed boost to the dodgy EF headlights.

Now all you need to do is get it down to this height ;):

yeah, a lower ride height is definatley on the cards, im thinking about an inch, my old thing was too low and i cant be bothered avoiding speed humps in this car!!!

Looks like a great pick-up mate, well done. One minor mod I'd consider is clear side indicators and colour coded side mouldings. :eek:)

is the interior that brownish/beige colour? my EF has that, i hate it, wish it was grey/black!

sweet car but buddy, im considering shift kit or manual conversion for mine - getting it turboed is so tempting too! wonder how much that costs
