Hey Guys and Girls.

Just wanted to let you know, I am now the proud owner of a BA XR6 Turbo.

Its my new company car and I'm LOVING it 8-)

I picked it up last week - Its Lightning Stike (silver) with premium sound and 35% tint all round.

It drives really well (a lot better than the old EF) - still cant get the stupid grin off my face every time i get behind the wheel...

I'll get some picks up ASAP.

Cheers,
Adz

Nice work mate!!

A genuine performance vehicle with room for Mrs and the youngin'. Perfect!

You getting the fuel put through salary sacrifice as well, or all paid for by employer??

Thanks Martin.

The fuel is paid for by the company.
they also give me $1000 a month to make repayments - and the repayments are only $665 a month :lol:

I'm happy as a pig in sh!t

Ryan (our son) seems a lot happier when being driven around in it - when he was in the EF he carried on, but now he is much better...the wife like is too!

Good to hear you are happy.

Nothing wrong with an EF though. :P I took a few people for a spin on Saturday night in mine, and you couldn't wipe the smile off their faces. :lol:

True, but bolt a turbo on the side, and I don't think you will have many complaints either.

On the other hand, some would say why bother when you can get one off the showroom floor??

Well done.

LOL, I LOVED my EF (still do)

but when your work pays you to drive around in a factory fitted XR6T - it just feels great.

Being a rep - the interior is a big part of the package, and I really rate the inside of the BA's

+ The ride is smooth, and the pwer is there.

but hey, im sure if I went for a spin in your worked EF V8 the smile would still be stuck on my face...

Aaawwwww... thanks.

Enough about mine. This thread is about your new car.

I guess you can't complain about that being your company car.

yeah mate, its not a bad gid - cruising around S.A in a nice set of wheels.
Im lucky the boss let me get it - he didnt want me driving around in a 'hoons' car.

but he drives a commy berlina V8.... took him for a drive in the ford, and I think I may have converted him 8-)
