Surfside XDi 302 and 443 in AOA

Postby Noel » Thu Mar 05, 2009 5:21 pm

Hi

Surfside 302 is the only Bustech XDi in the Surfside yellow. Here is a shot of it at Seaworld today. It looks absolutely brilliant and no advertising... yet.

Also seen today was Surfside 443 sporting an AOA for Southern Cross Uni. This is the first new fronted XDi in AOA, with Surfside 500 the first XDi in a wrap.

Nice photos. I also agree that the Yellow XDI looks good, about the only thing in that livery that does :twisted: And I really like that AOA on 443

I think most things look really good in the Surfside yellow livery. Well better than the plain white you obsess over anyways. Each to their own though :lol: 8)

Great photos as usually Noel, 443 in that light blue coloured AOA looks a bit like a mix of the traditional Sunbus livery with the TL livery. Lets hope 302 escapes the Go Transit adverstising treatment for a while yet at least.

Guys i'm on the Gold coast and i'm always going on buses, but 302 is now really screwed up, surfside went and painted the grey parts black, and other random parts along the front & side :(
