Re: Keep Car Or Look For XR8???
Well if it were me, you'd better save the money and get the AUIII XR8. Not only you'll have one hell of a car to begin with, but you'll be able to do all the mods you wanted down the track anyways. I think it would be a better base to modify than a Forte.
As well as that, since the XR8 is your dream car you may as well get it. I've gone the path of modifying standard falcons and it isn't the same as getting the dream XR.
