Re: AUIII XR6 vs AUIII XR6 VCT ?
I have an AU III XR6 VCT. I'm not sure what the diiference in handling is suppossed to be, but I reckon the IRS ride is like an old dog. It's fantastic when you need to use it in cornering and at higher speeds, but in a straightline in everyday driving conditions, its bumpy, ridgid and uncomfortable. For me, the non IRS models is better for overall everyday driving. I've driven both. My folks own a futura series 3 with the intec. If you feel like a squirt and a bit of fun, go the VCT model.
Another person to have a chat with is JC-XR8. I think he had a series 1 vct before switvhing to the XR8 and also has an AUIII forte.
For an extra $3,000, i'd stick with the standard 4.0. In my mind, its not worth the extra.
