Hey hany, welcome to FF mate.

I rekon its all a matter of personal preference. Some people just can't go past a v8 no matter what else is on offer or how mutch it costs.

I chose the turbo because I have a simmilar love of anything with forced induction. I have no idea why, I just love the idea. Also IMO a hot six sounds just as good as a hot eight, only in a different way.

Different strokes for different folks. It depends on what you are trying to achieve, what your budget is and a heap of other stuff. It's like asking if blondes or brunettes are better!
XR8 is more powerful, around 20kw, that matters to some people but not to others. XR8 might cost more for servicing (2 more of a lot of things, but then 6cyl has turbo so it might even out in the end). XR8 will probably chew through more juice, especially around town and when you are hammering it but it is reportedly better on fuel than the XR6T on the highway. It's an invidual thing. Read THIS THREAD XR6T upgrade . . . a tough decision
for some other views on the subject.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
