Question Xr8

Ok all i want one,

Looking at maybee ef - el xr8 or maybee a xr6 but i really want the 8.

I know the el would be better its got more power but is it much of a hassle to mod the ef xr8 power up to the el stats. And what sort of price am i going to be looking at to say get about 200 kw fly out of it.

I really need help as im not looking at buying until towards end of year but im going to start looking now. :)

Anyone know the sorta price i should be looking at paying for a ef, el xr8 and are there any problems i should be looking at on those models

Alkl help would be greatly apprecated

Thanks

Steven Barrett

I was looking at some ELXR6 and 8s the other week in some Sydney car yards and $20K seems to be the going price for a good one. Of course you'd save a few grand by buying private, make sure you do a REVS check first.

ebIISIXA,

Yesterday i bought an AUII XR8 and the dealer offered me 11k trade for my EFII XR6 with 97,000km.

Don't make the mistake i did and buy a six. You'll regret it for years to come.
