Copy that. We have the same thing except its called an SR form Ford itself.


yeh except the SR got rear power windows and leather steering wheel and cruise control... The XT with sports kit was literally just an XT with the kit and the wheels... A few dealers added the S to the end just to make it stand out...

From memory when I got a quote on a BA turbo, to get teh bonnet was another $3500 - I'm not sure my memory was correct but talking it through with the salesman he agreed they were overpriced to deter people from doing it. They'd obviously rather sell you an XR8 than an XR6T with a bonnet bulge. Tossers I say

Good on 'em! I hate looking at XR6Ts with bonnet bulges. They may be quicker but it's still not an 8.

What a bunch of theives. How can they really charge that amount for something they have a press for that does the same as the other metal press.

Personally I think to save costs have only I type of bonnet the bulge 1 for the whole range. Why the 2 types of V8 mtrs have the XR8 1 in a detuned state for the other models. Why not offer the tubo 6 in other models as a upgraded option.Some people like premium models over XR's but would like a turbo offered as a option.
Holden did it with the VL and they are still a sought after car the Turbo more than the 8. More of a image car than the N/A6 XF's

in case u didnt know.. u can order an XR6, XR6 turbo, or XR8 now with the full dash out of a fairmont ghia, including full premium sound and climate control, and these really nice leather/suede seats. All in all i think they come up wayyyy nicer than a standard fairmont... esp if u put 18's on it... it is a $4000 option tho

I reckon the sports steering wheel would look sweet. Ive got it on the xr6 and it feels alot better compared to the original one.

I think the fpv one is the same as the sports one, just has the fpv badge on it and the momo ones have the different colour leather trim
