Welcome to the ranks of EF XR8 owners. I have owned mine since new and still LOVE it.
Nothing like the sound of a V8, especially with a twin system.

Simon,

Congrates on your purchase. This also makes you a full member of the Tickford club well done. I will always envy V8 drivers, as it is the engine to have, be proud mate.

Will have to checkout your car on Sunday if your going to the St Clair car show.
