AUI XR8 vs AUII XR6 HP
I had the chance tonight to see how my 156.5rwkW translated real world. I decided on a bit of a cruise toight, and whilst heading up the highway towards St Marys, the familiar twin lights appeared in my rear vision mirror. It was a white XR8, AU Series 1. He spent a lot of time hanging on my arse, even with lane changes presumably checking out the new kit.
As luck would have it, we got ahead of the traffic and stopped as some lights - well, I stopped, he was still a little behind so he had rolling momentum. Lights went green, and he punched the throttle, so I responded.
One surprised XR8 owner - my plates give away what XR variant I own (guess he won't know if it's HP or VCT) so he knew his extra two cylinders were useless!
Ok, so mines modified. Both cars were manual. But a win is a win.
