I'm all grins.

I'm interested in the photos of the Polar Arctic T5 (I'm considering that color). Where do I look for member submitted photos, in the Gallery?

Sorry guys... I've been very busy. Here's a kinda crummy first pic of the T5. I'll post better ones as soon as I can (maybe this weekend).

Photos don't do the Polar Artic Blue color justice. The color seems to change radically from dawn to dusk... but I think it always looks splendid no matter what time it is.

If you can be patient, I'm picking up my Venetian Red V70 T5 manual today. I'll post some pics the first chance I get (just to make the decision a little tougher....)

I saw a T5 in the dark blue today with Amalthea wheels. Very nice colour as well. The Venetian Red is beautiful and rich and the Polar Arctic Blue sure is nice too. Lots to choose from when I replace my wife's Explorer next year.

It's raining today, so the next sunny day I promise some photos.

Well, yay for you too!


Venetian Red is a handsome color. I bet it looks great. What interior trim/options/wheels, etc. did you get with it?

Also, don't you feel solid and secure driving in the rain, now?

Well. I'm in Canada, so the options/packages are a little bit different.

I've got a taupe/light taupe leather interior, upgraded to Amalthea 17" wheels (although I'm hoping to jettison the P6's soon) and I got the Family package -- which consists of the child booster seats, built-in cargo net, a neat table cup-holder thingy in the back for the kids. Comes standard with the Audiomax stereo, which just blows me away... Unfortunately DSTC isn't standard on T5's in Canada and I couldn't justify an extra $1650 for it.

I hope to tint the windows and have the 3M clear tape applied to the bumper/hood this weekend.

I'll need to wash it before I take pictures, because the rain yesterday has made it filthy already.

Can't wait to have more of a chance to drive it more than just to and from work in traffic.

Oh yeah. What have people found is the optimal tire pressure for the P6's on the Amalthea's? I'm willing to sacrifice a bit of ride comfort for better performance.

Thanks

If you guys use "psi", then, inflate your tires to about 32psi...if you load up the car, you can thake them up to 34 or 35psi.
