I have a T3 TE50(auto), managed to pick up a brand new one
in Feb this year. The only negative feedback I have heard
is that the manual gearbox rattles when in neutral.

Great car to drive. I have done 3500 km and its starting
to free up now, love the note of the exhaust.

Werent the AU a fair bit lighter than BA? It would probably account for a BA XR8 in straight line speed! I know the windsor engine is a bit lighter!
