  1. It would seem there are multiple threads about the new site. I posted elsewhere that I use an Android Xoom tablet and there is no provision to switch to the desktop view, as had been stated by others when in Mobile view!!! I like to use desktop at all sites I visit with the Xoom, rather than mobile, mobile view, especially here now with the new update to this site is, well terrible.

    new site

    I MUST BE MISSING SOMETHING. Running this on my Xoom Android Tablet I can't find any switch at the bottyom of the page to select desktop version or mobile. I prefer Desktop versions of all sites on my tablet, this looks terrible as a mobile on a tablet.

    Bingo, you're right, my wife and I saw this car up close and personal, it's a one off by the way, in Dubai, might be white gold, but when you see it in the outdoors and sun, looks amazing, and looks like pure SILVER

    Sure is. I figured that if I was getting the TRD, I may as well get the higher spec one. Also, I just had to make sure I got the Smart Entry. Always wanted that feature. Just look at what you can do with a SILVER CAR, great choice

    Our neighbour over the road and his wife have a BLACK TRD 3500 SL, I have a silver prodigy. We both use our cars as daily drives etc. He's told me on several occassions, and so has his wife, that buying Black was the worst decission they've ever made with a car. They bought it on impulse, overwelmed by the look of the black and now they totally regret it. He always remarks that he wished he'd bought silver like ours because to quote him, 'my car always looks like it's just stepped out of the car wash', even when it may have been a week's use before it's had a tub. He can do his up to the nine's, go to the local shopping centre and by the time he's home it can take on a brown over black look from the dust. Looks great when it's just been cleaned, but by the end of the same day can look very ordinary !!!!

    TradingPost used cars, Silver Aurion TRD 3500 SL, burgundy trim (looks great). Located Oberon NSW, 17.500K's, Go silver, always looks great even when dirty, easy to maintain finish, and TRD has enough contrasting pieces to make them look A1.

    Funny you mention that. Provided that I get paid out in full since I am pretty sure this car is a write-off (unles I am really thinking of getting another Aurion mainly because I still love the car for what it is, plus I have good faith in them now with respect to safety. At first I thought since I really love the Wildfire colour (and because that's what I had), I was thinking of maybe using my money to get an 07 Sportivo ZR6 with sunroof and keeping whatever cash was remaining. One reason I want the ZR6 is the Smart Entry. It's one of those gimmicks that I want. I then realised that this option probably isn't really the best choice, so then my next idea was to add about $10k and get say a 2009 facelift Sportivo SX6. I'm not much of a fan when it comes to the new Sportivo's though. But this option then means I will have a new car etc, etc. My other option though is to get a TRD. I would have to get a 3500SL since if I'm getting a TRD, I'll want the Smart Entry as well. Options are fairly limited, but I have found one for sale in Adelaide where I happen to be working in a couple of weeks time. This one would require that I add on about $10k to my insurance payout, pretty much like if I was to get the facelift SX6. Only thing is, the TRD is a 2007 model, however only has 18,000km on the clock. It is silver in colour (like yours David), so it doesn't quite feel the same to me, even though I have no issues with the colour. So while I wait for this insurance to sort itself out, I have some thinking to do. Depite the TRD being a 2007 model and being a second hand car, I am still leaning more towards it just due to the fact that it is the TRD. Sorry mate. Nothing came through to my phone, but I understand. Thanks for the generosity as well. I should be fine though. I plan to have everything sorted out so once I return to Brissy, I should have a set of wheels again. Slightly more critical because I will be filling a full time position on my return which requires that I have a car. RED TRD 2007 MODEL FOR SALE SYDNEY (nsw) ON THE TRADING POST SITE. 19,300 K'S; $41,000 NEGOTIABLE CONTACT # 04142773493, Whilst it's got a few more k's they say it's in excellent condition, $10,000 cheaper than the other one might be worth a look !!!
