Looks great! Does Tickford fit the good brakes themselves? They do look like steelies in the last pic.

Coming off the line.
Can't resist this one:

CAPTION COMPETITION - "What is this guy saying?"

I'll start:
"Hey Johnny, let's take this one down to the donut pad and have some fun :nuts: "

I was trying to think of something with that one also, but the early morning got the better of me :eek:

Really happy with the car though, handles great sounds great.

One of the guys at work has a VX SS, the general opinion is the the XR looks and sounds better, the VX is to be put in to have a new exhaust shortly.:D

Yes I believe that tickford fit the wheels and Premium brakes (if optioned). They also do the exhaust, oil cooler and probably a few other bits I've forgotten

For XR8:
Once at Tickford the cars through XR line which is oil cooler mounting, nosecone, lights, badging etc.
Then depending on how busy things are:
- wheels/tyres
- exhaust, oil cooler connect, engine cover
- sunroof
- bodykit
- trim (momo stuff etc)
- and last of all premium brakes

To tell staff what goes on each car Tickford use these stickers on the windscreen:

Fantastic!
Mine slipped past Tony until after the 'XR Line' :( when he found it in the exhaust queue. Oh well, can't say Tony doesn't look after his customers!

Hey, just wondering. Have a look at that Silver Wagon on the Finemores truck in the background. It looks like it has XR8 wheels, blackened window frames and stuff. mmmmmmmmmm ;)

Whoops, forgot one. There's a bit more white space on the sticker on my windscreen as opposed to Aussie Pete's:p

As for the Wagon, have seen a AU wagon down this way with an XR front end. Looked very nice!. Actually a bloke I know wanted to get a wagon, 5 litre manual with XR front. He got the impression that Dealer could swing it as a speacial order. That would be nice.

That wagon looked slick but I was looking at the Forte on the lower level. Wonder if it is a cop car?
