ED Xr8

I am looking at buying a ED or EB XR8 or XR6 and was wondering what to look for when buying this sort of car. also how much would one be worth at around 150,000 kms.
which is better the 6 or 8, i was leaning towards an XR8 but in that model it only has 4 kws more and uses more fuel (and fuel will be an issue cause my current car is a mini and it only uses under $10 a week in petrol).
any ideas would be appreciated.

Re: ED Xr8

All i can really mention is .. If you buy a manual in either the 6 or 8
1 check the Clutch pedal pivot, grab a torch get on ya back & have a good! look at the pedal box where the clutch pedal pivots as they crack around there.
2 Check where the cable exists the firewall its a common problem with them cracking there also & pulling through the firewall.
Thats mainly it mate
$8000-14000 therebouts.
