Sounds good to me.

I got my Navy Blue EFII XR6 @ 107,000kms, cruise, abs etc in excellent condition serviced at the one place approx 6 months ago and I got it for $18,500

If it's what you want and in your price bracket, then go for it.

Low k's for an EL, sounds like a good buy!

55k km's for an EL is damn good. Especially if the car is in immaculate condition. If your after an E Series Xr6 then i say get it.

The Navy Blue in the E Series is a nice colour to boot.

thanks for the input guys.
i was looking at a BA XR N/A but id have to wait awhile plus with a mortgage and all.
so i was thinking of something a bit cheaper for a couple of years then i seen this el traded in this morning, ive always loved EL XRs
couldnt believe only 55000kms so i traced its history back.
it also used to live round the corner from me!

taking it for the weekend to see how it goes.

I have an EL XR6. Bought it for $13,500 with RWC. 5 speed manual, 2.5" mandrel bend and K&N airfilter, otherwise standard.

Is the car you'relooking at manual or auto? If it's manual I would say definately get it. $16,500 still sounds proetty good, especially beeing from a dealer and you get a used car warranty too.

That sounds like a good deal. Make sure you drive it hot, cold, hard, easy and besically give it a good test.
Other wise, sounds good!
