To AU3 XR8 Pursuit 250 owners

I'd like to hear from anyone who owns one of these. Are you happy with it? Any problems or issues? Anything else I should know about them?

I'm pretty interested in these and there are a couple around for sale at the moment. Just want to do some more homework before I start taking to the yards. I've talked ballpark figures with one yard and my AU trade-in was pretty low (suprise suprise) and doesn't look like I'll get the deal I'm after.

I'm having a lash at selling my AU1 XR6 (see appropriate forum for details). It's also in todays trading post but I haven't exactly been rushed for phone calls.

Anyway, back to the point. Would appreciate any comments, good and bad, from Pursuit owners.

Cheers..........

No real big problems with the 250 Persuits, just the same old AU hicups, If you can get one go for it, they kick ass thats for sure! you wont be sorry, they are a little hard to find so keep looking and good luck........

Hi Cobra, where did he trade it? Is it the Blueprint one at Rex Gorrell's in Geelong?
