@Misrabelle Nice car! The XR BA Falcon has always been a nice clean car. I find it somewhat fitting that the bridemaids got shoved into the only XR6 in the pack... :lol:
It was actually the bride who insisted on the cars. Her Dad offered to find 3 old school Falcons, but she said she wanted 3 blue B-series cars, but that they had to be loud.

James - the owner of the Blueprint XR8, got told at the reception that it was lucky he could find "three XR8s" for the day.
It was pointed out that mine was a 6, and the surprised reply came back that it sounded just as tough as the 8's.
I even had a few of the guests come up to me and say they thought it was great that a girl had a car that could run with the boys.

There was some ''musical cars'' going on with the bridal party between the photo venues - purely because James wanted a ride in my car.
He was impressed with how well it kept up to his car in front (only carrying the bride and groom), when I had 4 passengers.

A long time family friend was driving his car, (as James was a groomsman) knowing that he was in the car behind, and therefore unable to do anything but watch, he was pushing it a fair bit.

Fair enough! I hear the XR8s are pretty heavy, but either way I'm not surprised the tweaked 6 keeps up quite well. I've driven a few older E-Series Falcons, and the torque the 6 chucks out is rather meaty and relentless.

Shame that the women I hang around don't really like cars... <_<

Not long after I bought it, when it was still bog stock, I pushed it to the speed limiter (180kph) on Mountain Straight at Mt Panorama, and it was still pulling.:cool:
With the CAPA tuner, the speed limiter is removed, but I haven't had a chance to try it out since.

Even the dash lights match!!

In the standard model they're green, sport models got the blue, and the 'luxury' cars got white. Then they introduced the SUV based on the Falcon and it got red.

With the new exhaust and tips fitted:

Speedo looks hot. I like the red ticks for higher speeds. Makes you feel :devil:!

BUT... What's with the hitch!?!? :-o :idiot:
It's already saved me from needing a new rear bumper after some stupid girl in a Yaris (that she clearly didn't pay for), hit me because she thought I was going to run the red light in front of us.
She didn't touch the bumper, just the tow ball, so there was a nice big hole in the front of her car.
Didn't even get out to look, just gave me her details and said that her parents would pay for any damage to my car.

I did check under the car for any damage to the chassis, caused by the hit on the tow bar but it was all good.

Oh, and Dad has a boat, so I get towing duties.

If you say so... but on this forum, having a hitch on a car (non-pickup/SUV) is kind of a no no... :(


I'll be your new friend though! BUT only if you let me drive your car! :p
