what to look for when buying

Hey all

Thanx for the help in my last thread

I've decided to go for a EL XR6.

Untill now ive never shopped for
anything newer then a XF.

What advice can you give me for finding
a good EL, what should i look for, and what
should i avoid.

Thanx again.

Apparently the headbolts were prone to braking in EF/EL's.
Maybe check if it's had them replaced yet.

I had to get the head gasket and bolts replaced a month or two after buying my EF XR6, and it wasn't a cheap job!
