In The Market, Fg Xr6T. Sell The Fg To Me! (Merged Topic)


Recommended Posts

Doubt it. Sales of new XR6T's are so slow now.... and they keep dropping the new price.

Its tough with the new VF coming in cheaper and being a much better package.

Can only see things getting much worse, not sure why they are even bothering with an update.

..I agree.......Perhaps we are getting a bit offtopic, probably deserves another thread...

..Expensive Daewoo in Australia .. its not looking so good at the moment either. Also the news says that again Ford will not commit to manufacturing in Australia past 2016

Too bad the VF looks like a Mazda with all the glamorous stuff inside it looks like a girls car, when I saw it I thought what a Let down,

make no mistake I would drive one but wouldn't go around acting like it's the best thing since sliced bread, so I thought the HSV would be better.

Apart from the Engine, it looks like a Riced up VF with that crappy spoiler.

The FG looks nice all round and pre-facelift is best looking with Interior that's awesome, thing that dissapoints me is that all the salesman seem to be a bunch of retards who can't market it to the customers or know anything about it how the hell can you employ people like that to work at a Car dealership.

40k with Lux Pack is a good deal, If I remember weren't they more like 55k with Lux pack a while back?

Nah, not as high as $55k but without a discount, $50k is the normal drive-away price you'll be given by a dealer. Just like a G6ET, I was told the "drive-away" price was $62,XXX but without even asking they gave me a 'discount' to $55,750. So previously the XR6T would be the same, $50k advertised, do you a 'deal' to $43-44k and then negotiate to $40k if you were good. Now they just give it to you for $40k.

Bought my original 2010 xr50 sedan auto for $45k D/A in aug 2010, sold it last Oct for $37k unreg to a guy in canberra and just picking up a 2010 xr50 ute for $27k D/A. all in all not too bad.

Couldnt really give a f*ck about resale, I love these cars and wouldnt buy anything else so thought I better get in before they start getting collectable. As for a H*lden..............yeah I'm not that desperate, hate there interiors.......Ford all the way :icon_ford: . Now a Mustang ......... :1luvu:

Today I test drove a VE GTS with Walkinshaw exhaust, intake and a camshaft upgrade, highstall converter and shorter diff gears, as I was considering selling my FG to get something faster and more responsive.

The thing was ridiculously slow, could not even feel the car pulling even with all those mods, would just rumble and make noise and go nowhere, not sure if they are all like that but not really inspiring to drive. The Autobox was very lazy to shift into the correct gear, the car felt like it didn't know what it was doing half the time.

Guys,

I intially went in to buy myself a VF SV6......dealer wanted $39 on road - and when he refused to haggle, his response was 'mate I have a 3 month wait - take it or leave it'......I didnt even enquire about the SS price......so of to Ford I went......long story short - I placed an order on a brand spanker XR6T......only 4 days to wait.....Im getting the shakes!

Ford showroom was like a morgue with tumbleweeds rolling through...dealer threw a $14k discount plus options at me (with me doing some pricing homework at 7 or so dealers prior to really leverage a good deal)......

I reckon price was just to good to refuse.....brand new (demo with 16km on the clock) FG II XR6 turbo, mars red, although not luxo pack, it has leather, alloy spare, tinted windows, full tank of fuel, 5 year warranty, 2 year roadside assists and free 10km service.....all on road for $38.5K.....I was pretty stoked with this prices.....oh I just cant wait!....he even said - tell your mates and if they purchase I fling you a $150 finders fee!

I spoke to a dealer today, I would get a 10k trade in on my 06 xr6t with 83,000km on it, making it a 28k changeover figure for a 2013 xr6t no leather.

that was without seeing my car and he said "are those numbers ok? send me some pics of your car etc" sounded very keen to move his stock.

Not sure if this thread is still used but can't hurt to try eh?

 

I'm in the market for a new car, chasing an FG XR6T MKII. Priorities are: under 100K kms, leather, prefer white or lightning strike but happy to look at others if its the right car. Manual would be nice but not essential as I know the auto's are great!

 

I am VERY fussy about my vehicles so it would have to be in excellent condition, full service history etc. If there are a couple tasteful mods so much the better! Located in WA and have cash, but may look interstate as there is not much here atm. Cheers, thanks for looking!
