Keep Car Or Look For XR8???

Hey guys,

Lately ive been thinking...
Do i keep the AU1 Forte and do a heap of engine, interior and cosmetic mods -or- do i start putting some money away now and when its paid off in about 12 months time, get my self a nice AUIII XR8(My Dream Car)?

Just wondering what your guys think?

Mate, go the V8. You're not fully a man until you own one. :)

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.

Re: Keep Car Or Look For XR8???

Yep XR8 absolutely. You would have to spend a LOT of money on a Forte to make it anywhere as enjoyable as a stock AU3 XR8 IMO. Bite the bullet, find one you like, and PUSH the dealer for a good tradein.
