            So based on launch price (over base launch price) 16k for front and rear diffs, red calipers and plastic brake ducting + consumable tyres & wheels / suspension most will change. ~18k for post first 200 pricing.

            non limited run so no limited run exclusivity.

            Edit- interestingly no colour choice, must be pearl white.

              So what do we think of the pricing of the Rallye? Worth it over the $39950 base model price?

              not gonna lie... kinda tempted to put a Rallye order in also.

                I’ve the 40k deal no, I think that’s a waste like what psi999 mentioned. Over the now new rrp I think it’s a decent deal.

                  Be far better buying in the first 1,000 and shoving a diff in yourself.

                    well they want 49,950 now for a base model, so its really only 6ish k more (excluding onroads)

                    All in all it seems like they are just price gouging now, they could hapilly sell 1000 units at 40k and make a profit and now they want 10k more

                      I mean if you are paying the $50K RRP of the base model then an extra $6K for that gear is a no brainer assuming you can get one of the first 200, but compared to the $39,950 price it's not really worth it, that $15K buys you a lot of upgrades further down the line and you can add just the bits you want too.

                      From what I've seen most of the Japanese guys who got the High Performance model and are serious about track driving have already dumped the forged wheels for lighter, wider wheels with more track focused rubber and the suspension for more track orientated setup and aside from the diffs that is most of the upgrades you'd get in the Rallye anyway.

                      The way I see it wheels and suspension are something I am likely to upgrade at some point anyway so I don't see the value in paying for stuff that will probably get replaced with something aftermarket anyway.

                        Yep I got the $40k deal too, my car should be here in 2 weeks or so.

                        I guess I’m just a sucker for the top model. I’ll probably come to my senses and not bother, but it does seem to be a once in a blue moon performance car given it’s scoring 5/5 reviews so wouldn’t be a bad thing to get the top model.

                        I guess the thing we are all keen to see is a review of our base model with the same tyres as the Rallye with PS4s and the diffs.

                          I got in at the 40k price, an extra $16k doesn't / wouldn't interest me for the extras.

                            Only thing id keep from rallye is the diffs. Hate red stitching and calipers

                              So who’s going for the Rallye? Blur, I really think you should...
                              Only because I want to move up and get my car a month earlier!
