Surely it makes more sense to fit nothing.

It doesn't come off. What you see there is the muffler without tips. The secondary muffler is installed in a separate part of the facility as the bi-modal arrangement needs to be connected.

At a guess, I'd say every FORD dealer is holding refundable deposits in varying numbers for the XR8 Sprint and the XR6T Sprint. Couldn't imagine too many have put money down on the N/A version.
My deposit is with Bayford in Coburg and I'm sure they'd be happy to add a few more.
Have purchased thru them previously, and they've been great to deal with, including the guys in the service department.

I've had a contract and deposit down with my dealer for a standard XR8 for the past 13 months as i made a special request for a 2016 build XR8, but also have the option to change to a sprint (if it comes out) as i'm the first one on there list for next years cars...waiting patiently to see whats to come.

Depending on how you define "happen", you are already wrong, as they already exist in all three guises.......

Well the need for sarcasm showed its ugly face again.
You know that this is typical on a lot of forums where we are meant to float ideas

At least its something a little different than standard...not too drastic but at least its something, maybe could of had the XR6/XR6T/XR8 above the sprint somewhere (may of been too crowded though) otherwise i'm liking it alot...mainly due to the fact there is actually a sprint of some kind coming out

It's like

So many special edition farewells popping up after decades of real performance heritage!
I hope to see how well-specced the Sprint edition is or are and their asking price.
