    Default Enemy in the ranks

    Hi guys,

    thought it's only fair if I come on here and register and be part of the fun, even if I drive a XR5.

    Would love to catch up sometime, and maybe join in on some cruising action.

    Congrats on the site

    Tell us about the Xr5...

    How long have you had it for?
    What were your initial impressions compared to after having it a while?
    Performance?
    Day to day livability?
    Quality of build?
    Fun Factor?
    Fuel Economy?
    Mods?
    Anything else?

    This is my second XR5, had this one for 5 months. Some of the boys will remember the bluey. (which is now owned by a guy in Victoria)
    I find it a very comfortable car to live with, as we all know each car has it's own personality and the XR5 is a good match for me. It's a great car to just cruise around in day to day, but it's also got plenty of go when you need it.
    Solidly built, the type of car you'd want to be in in the event of a crash.

    Very fun, much the same as the MPS I suppose.
    I average between 9.8 and 11.4 per tank, but I do mainly highway driving (15000k's in 5 months.)

    I've got Dreamscience tune, EBC reds and braided hoses, CAI and top pipe, Radtec intercooler, and a few cosmetic mods; painted wheels, grilles and diffuser. Also rebadged the car as a ST as they have them in the UK.

    Got a spare set of rims and R888 tres for track days.

    Personally I don't particularly like the look of the XR5 facelift, it just doesn't look finished, but a few small tweaks, and it looks pretty good.

    Hiya!

    Nice car! I was ready to sign the contract on the XR5 (I was prepared to overlook the Ford badge!) -I testdrove it 4 times! ...but then, on a whim, I test drove the MPS3 and was sold.

    I really like the XR5 look! The wheels are sooo horny. The interior I thought, was pretty good. The dash I loved! But...One major thing that put me off of buying it, and you will all laugh (maybe it's a girl thing, I dunno?!) was the bloody CUPHOLDERS! I HATE THEM! They are soo the wrong size and not deep enough! Oh, and the keyless ignition, IMO, sucks. The ride itself was fun!

    Anywayz, would love to see some pix one day!

    Cheers

    Bought the XR5 after owning a Astra SRi, which has no cupholders, so no worries there.

    I like the keyless ignition, I get to keep the key in my pocket, and eventhough it's a gimmick I still like it.


    But seeing as you're a girl, I can understand the choice of the MPS.
