Easier said than done, don't forget your on a thing called a public road.
and have you heard the line hit and run.

don't forget cost of maintenance etc. ef/el parts are dime a dozen, ba/bf doubt it.
I suspect he could've done better but nice to hear it's black, you can always slowly upspec it to Fairmont spec.

man some of you guys are a**hole. complete and utter d***head. honestly.

from page one all i see is (your car is s**t,my car is better,xf is s**t,el/ef is crap, why did you dad buy it? cant you save up yourself? your 18 you know everything!, another dad who bought his sonm a car etc etc etc etc)

common guys grow up a little aye? people buy and own what they like. i have an xf. i love it more than anything inthe world and i dont like the shape,interior of an el/ef. so i didnt buy one. why rip on people for there personal preferance?

My don't we get touchy, An XF would've been an excellent choice, i just sold a ZL Fairlane and now have an NF Fairlane they are of course are chalk & cheese but the ZL cost me $650 and i had it for four years of comfortable, reliable driving - sure it was thirsty and there is some issues with LPG on the EFI models but give the guy a break he was asking for help and he got bicth -slapped for it - mate enjoy your new car - my parents bought me my first car - gow up guys!
