Default My trade in is on the net

Five years warranty? I wonder if they will warrant the gearbox/drive train with over 300rwks or if they detuned it. lol. If they will, it would be a good buy, I spent bucket loads on that car. : Always wondered where it ended up after trading it in at Ford.

How much did they pay you for the trade vs the sale price?

Looks like they've de-tuned it, or there just leaving the new owner to a hell of a surprise!

Trade was around $18,000 by the time the change over was worked out with a few extras on my GS so $22,000 is not much of a mark up with 5 years warranty. Well thats what Ford gave me, who knows how much the wholesaler picked it up for?
And yes it will be a real suprise when someone test drives it, anything under 80kms on a dry road it would spin the rears when you give it some. :

They probably have photos from forums of it on Moran Park, Lakeside, QR and Willowbank when the buyer comes to get a repair: oh sorry mate this car has been raced so warranty is void. lol.

Haunt me nah it was one of the best looking Blueprint XR's in the club I thought you sold the 19" on here I will let her know - Do you want me to give them your mobile no or email address so they can talk turkey on the CAPA unit with you.
I got a shock when I seen it in their driveway on Friday night when I was walking the dog - there is only 1 blueprint XR I know of with that bonnet scoop on it
And Paul they went from a diesel Landcruiser to the XR - a bit of a change and I have a buffer of 2 yards 4 fences and a few garden beds if it gets out of hand :

May not be enough AL. Maybe you should consider some inflatable products of some sort, to absorb the imanant impact.....
