    Any pics and are you getting one?

    Post by FPV 521 on Mon Apr 21, 2008 6:36 am

    First post here and I have to say I am getting very excited regarding the arrival of the FG.
    Spent a lot of time over the weekend on the internet learning what I could and have only got excited recently as the car is not far away from becoming reality.

    Are there any of FG Falcons in the country at the moment and if so does anyone have any good pics to post?

    I was looking at keeping my current BF but I think that will change now as the new car looks good on paper.
    For me personally, I am setting up a new business so an FPV is out of the question so it will be an XR and although the Turbo is quicker I dont think I can move away from a V8 so what are you guys getting if you are going with the new FG?

    Welcome Mate.

    There were a few at Hamilton this weekend and I must say they look very sharp, much better in the flesh too plus some have been seen around the roads too............Must be dealers going for rides in then I reckon. Cool

    Yeah they look very nice. Either XR6 or XR8. Both look very stylish and great new colours too. Smile

    In fact the XR6 may even be a little better looking than the XR8 as there is just a tad too much going on with the XR8 bonnet. Sad

    thanks for posting those photos, very much appreciated.
    The XR8 is a bit to loud for me in that colour and the alloys are a bit busy but I like the look of the car and being a V8 fan will most likely see me in another 8.

    One thing that has changed that I dont like much is the external door handles, the BA-BF panels look more streamlined but Im just being a bit picky now.
    The front splitter/bumper looks to be very well crafted.

    I just cant wait to test drive the Turbo and XR 8 when they get here finally.

    Would love to see more pics in the meantime. Smile

    hopefully the "aftermarket" looking aerial on the ute is not standard, looks like it does not belong there

    Would have to look at the new colour range first before deciding, but it wouldnt be green.
