XR6T Ute & a ZX6R
Thought it was time I posted up my new ride. Parted ways with the SS a few months back as I needed something more suitable to my current needs. So I picked up this 2005 BA MkII XR6 Turbo ute. 6sp manual. Goes well, is a practical daily through the week and tows a bike trailer with 2 or 3 bikes on it and a tray full of riding/camping gear on the weekends. 100% stock standard and thats how I planned on leaving it. Fitted a twin 2.5" cat-back X-Force exhaust though just to give it a little better note. Would love to upgrade to a 4" dump and high flow cat but that will have to wait til I can afford the tune to go with it. lol. Looks wise Id love to lower it and throw some 20's on it but then that removes its practicality of driving a dirt corrugated roads that lead to most of the MX tracks around here. lol
For now it how she sits

Very nice!
Premium sound? - As for "100% stock standard", I don't how long that will last (don't talk to AirStrike!) - Although I seem to have done alright with leaving mine (engine) stock...

Haha. Cheers guys!
Yeah some darker tints are definitely on the want list, especially once summer gets here. haha.
Has the 6 stacker CD, but not colour screen so Im guessing just the standard sound with the option 6 stacker? Ive already installed the Ford AUX booster that you can get to allow ipod playing. lol. Have a 12" sub and amp to get hooked up shortly.
And yeah haha, dunno how long the no mods thing would last. Already want the dump, cat and tune. Haha. Wont be doing anything to exxy to it though.
Thinking about getting black GT stripes put up the sides soon. Nearly everyone I have mentioned it to says 'noooooooooo dont do it!' but I reckon they look really good and would give the white ute a bit less of a 'blank canvas' look. lol
