Pre purchase info on AUIII XR8, can you help?
Hello boys and girls, been lurking around, this is my first post/thread. Ok, I'm in the market for a AUIII XR8, 220kw, manual, Silhouette, sunroof, leather, prem. sound and brakes. The last two I can go with out, everything else is a must. Here's what I need info on.
* Is it just the sIII that had the 220kw motor? if not what build date did they start and how to make sure it is a 220kw?
*What are the differences mechanically and features wise between sI, sII and sIII? I'll let in on what I "think" I know are the differences. Bodykits. 185kw in sI, 200kw in sII and 220kw in sIII. Single piston front brakes on sI and twin piston with a caliper position change from rear (2 o'clock) to a front (10 o'clock) position on sII and sIII standard. Doors lock/unlock button on dash and seat belt height adjustment on B pillar for sII and sIII. What did I miss?
* There is a Rebel XR8, what's it got that the sIII XR8 doesn't?
Anything you can add, even things that would go unnoticed would be great. Thanks people.
Oh, and just for the record, I'm one of those guys who think the AU styling is sweet, just a notch better than the BA, just.
