GREAT PICS!!!

YEAHOR KIWI reppin' cruise!

That last pic is orsome, how you do that?

Dhiru - ya auckland buddy.

that last pic is a time exposure, set the camera up on a solid post so it doesn't move, press the button, and drive the car past.. the iris on the camera stays open (in this case 15 sec) and gets the lights, but not the car, think the car moves too fast..

Looks like we have to get our sh*t together up here in latte land!

Maybe next weekend for an hour or two.

Maybe up the Waitakeres?

Yeah Sunday should be sweet I think. maybe in the afternoon?

We may not be able to out do the pics those guys got but (south island is great) but we'll sure try to get some nice ones.

You know anyone else with a T? make sure they come!

Hey have you guys had much trouble with your xr6's? Mines been to ford twice now since I've had it (only 3 weeks max) .. TPS failed apparently, which caused it to drop at least one cylinder while driving along.. lol scarey! and the stupid TCS problem I was having..

was it a mistake to buy one lol!!!! I hope not...

Hey mate,

sucks to hear that about your car. what is TPS?

Only problems I have had are the following:

brake shudder and needing new pads every 15 000 kms.

engine cutting out and losing power once a few weeks ago, ford couldnt find a fault

loose exhaust within 1 week, and then more recently rattling due to being too low.

I hope this is the last time you need to take to to ford for a long long time.

Here is some pics of mine on another thread all nice and clean as well!

http://www.fordxr6turbo.com/forum/index.ph...16681&st=18

Yeah, ford said it happened to one guy heaps from Taupo to Auckland and they couldnt find out what it was, basically there is no power and to reset it, turn off and turn on again.

Cheers!

hahaha thanks!

yeah I really didnt want the silver, wanted the blueprint or neo or nararmo blue, but when I needed mine silver was only one I could find!

(all our cars at home are dark blue LOL that's why)

hehe, we didn't have much choice on the color of ours, we were looking at everything, holdens etc etc, but the XR6 turbo is pretty good value for money with what you get in the car, compared to most other makes. and yeah, the blueprint one was pretty much the only one we could find local and in our price range..

so when u gonna mish down south LOL ..

NAH NOT A HOLDEN!!

Personally, I think you got yours at a real good price! there are a lot of cars twice the age, not as fast or comfortable or equiped for like 15k - 20k. they are the best bang for ya buck

Well am thinking about coming for Winter fest, so may bring the car down then... but its just soo much cheaper to go in a plane!!

Gas alone will cost me a good 600 or more! LOL and then there are the other expenses such as speeding tickets HAHAHAH
