I've wanted a BA XR6 for years and now I finally own one :D WOOHOO!! My boyfriend is a Holden man (EWW) so this was a massive feat for him to accept a Ford into the family and now that we have it I'm 99% sure he secretly loves it LOL. Basically done but there's a few little things I'd still like to change and add, brought the car in September 2010:
100,078kms
Factory 5 Speed Manual
19" CSA Wheels
Premium Sound System
JDR Spoiler

Here's some pics, these are the ones the previous owner took because I haven't had a chance to take any new ones and I'm waiting till it's been buffed and polished.

Thanks! :) Nothing too extreme, eventually I want to get a sports exhaust put on it cause right now it's quite like a grandma car hahaha and change the tail lights to black ones, fpv badges, chrome interior door handles and that's probably about it but my sister is big into falcons so I'm sure if there's anything more she will demand it be done!

I don't know exactly what is on our ba xr6 but I def... know when the misses is home because I can hear her coming down the street. Only thing I don't like about it is that Drone sound you get on the highway.. reallllly annoying....


Like the wheels.

I LOVE this car, like you have no idea, I go to bed and can't sleep cause I'm excited about driving it the next day. I love how at night all the interior lights change. The only thing I don't love is I can't park it LOL you must teach me how!! Oh, and it's got this faint funky B.O stench from the previous owner but I'm working on eliminating that, stink be GONE :twisted: !!! The celica is like a toy car compared to this and I thought I loved that hahaha.

I put the plate protectors on it today, makes quite a difference for something so small. Gave it a bath too but can't wait for it to be cut back and polished, it's going to look insane!

As for the drone sound, I dig that! Reminds me of coming home from Sydney when we were younger in mum and dad's... sweet! You need some noise, when I get under it a bit there's a little bit of music to my ears but nothing compared to what I want it to be.
