Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

So only an extra $1k for Alpine & Vapor over normal SRT with roof/audio. That's fair. Glad they didn't try to rip customers $$$$ for black bits ;)

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

Hey Emma, just curious where you got the 'plus GST' bit? Cars are almost always "$X plus on roads" but the GST is already covered under 'X'. So may be interesting to see your calls in 75 not 82.5 :)
