Our EB XR8

Hi guys, just thought I would post some pics of the EB XR8 we recently brought.

I was not that keen on the white and gray at first. It grows on you. We found quiet a few little surprises after buying the car.

It has the Chiptoruqe upgrade, K&N Panel filter, Pacemaker Extractors, 2 1/2 inch sport system, koni ajustable shocks, king springs, urthane bushes and an Alpine amp under the pacel shelf.

Not a bad car with 139,000K on the clock. It goes fairly well and someday hope to do some other mods to the intake manifold, heads, etc.

Cheers
Mark

PS trying to P!ss off the rear lorve, the mrs likes it. :(

Thanks Blu,

I would live a set of 16" B45 or V5 Simmons (coloured grey centres) for it as well . Maybe a 16X7 for the front and a 16X8 for the back.

Wow ! Looks very clean. Needs some bigger wheels & lowering though and I'd get rid of those plastic attributes on all the windows. Other than that, it's a very nice looking car.

Nice car mate. I can't say it's every day I see an EB with 2 tone paintwork.

Thanks again guys,

Yesh when I we first saw the car I did not like the 2 tone paint. I have a friend who is a painter and thought he could re-paint the grey areas.

When we brought the car some and gave it a wash and polish and looked at it again, we thought not to bad.

I think a nice set of simmons either V5 or B45 colour coded grey and the car would come up looking even better.

Factory sunroof is a nice thing to have as well, the mrs always has it open when the sun is out.
