Re: BA XR8 UTE- how much is this one worth?

My understanding is that ford started fitting pedal boxs made to break away from drivers feet bin the advent of a head on. so a may build should be as good as it gets.


Has the ute been used as a demo?, check rear tyre condition and wear compared to fronts (for burn outs etc), check on service history, get your own mechanic to throw it up on a hoist and check underneath.

Drive a demo and compare.

good luck

I wouldn't be overly concerned about the number of ka's on the clock, but would be asking why they got rid of it after such a short time.

Re: BA XR8 UTE- how much is this one worth?

To do 15,000 km from May until now , thats somewhere between 3 to 4000k a month
With 2.5 years left on the warranty I reckon 37 to 38 gorillas would be top price i'd be prepared to pay , considering you can buy them for around 42 new.

You should be able to get it for less than 45k. Around 42k sounds more reasonable.
