    Has anyone got a price list on the FG range, I hear they will be cheaper than the B series due to getting rid of the new car discount thingy................Someone said $45k for an XR6. And I hope we can get the XR6 in 6 speed manual here in NZ. Thumbs Up

    Money talks FJ, you should be able to order whatever model in what ever flavour you desire. May have to wait a little bit though.... :geek:

    I'll wait till the MKII comes out, that way they would have ironed out any hiccups. Cool

    Have a look at the link below, the XR8 is 5k cheaper than the BF!!!
    http://www.ford.co.nz/servlet/ContentServer?cid=1178842944516&pagename=FNZ%2FDFYPage%2FDefault&c=DFYPage

    I have confirmed this pricing with the local dealer. For another 5k you get the leather, 19s etc on XR8 and Turbo.
    The list the dealer had showed all cars as having autos but I doubt that would be right.
    I would like an XR8 manual and apparently the 6 speed manual is very good and is the same box some BMWs etc use. its a lot more refined from what I have read.

    Cant wait to get my hands on one!!!
    Will still test drive the Turbo and the 8, looking forward to it!!!

    Will be the end of the year before I get one as I will save the money needed to go along with my trade.

    My new GT-P has finally arrived and what a car it is the pictures don't do them justice. It is worth the wait and all those who are waiting will be very pleased. Was going threw PD today so could not get any decent pics yet. Will post some up over weekend hopefully.

    Good job mate, cant wait to see the pics, I am heading South to Christchurch on July 18 to test drive the FPVs and will leave my XR8 behind, have a think about it then order a car.
    Cant wait to see your photos as the FPVs look great. Cool
