Re: Au Iii Xr8
[QUOTE=YOOT]The AUIII XR8s aren't much lighter than a BA, not that that isn't a reason to get one, but FYI the AUIII XR8 weighs in around 1700+kgs and the BA is around 1750kg I believe give or take. So there is bugger all in it. You can thank the oh so sweet IRS in the AU for that.
Not a lot in it just have a look at these figures.

AU XR8 1660 kgs, 220kw 6.4, 0to100 14.58, 400m Motor mag
The AU is by far the better car push hard in, But you dont get the BAs refinment. The AU is a very well sorted car with very few vices, you miss out on the warrenty issues you get with the BA
