Actually, on AU3 XR8 the Rebel style kit (called the Ford Racing Kit)is standard. The Tickford style kit as fitted to my AU2 (extra cost option back then) is a no cost option on AU3.
Also, AU2 XR8 was 200kW until vehicles built June 1 2001. After that they were 220kW and can be spotted via body colour mirrors. 220kW was not a free upgrade because you lost 5th alloy wheel, 6 CD changer went to single, and a few other minor items Ford thought no one would notice.
AU3 was best in Forte, Futura and definitely Fairmont Ghia. Others were so minor it wasn't more than a badge.
