Go for an AU II Futura or XR6 if you can get it.

Re: EL or AUII??? Oppinions, what to buy..

Only EL I would get is a series II XR8. Otherwise go a series 1 or 2 AU XR6. If you wanted to stretch the piggy bank to 20 you could get an AU1 XR8. I got my AU XR8 December last year with bodykit and 17's for 21K.

Re: EL or AUII??? Oppinions, what to buy..

Since you're a student you probably don't need the extra insurance and fuel costs associated with the V8. I'd be looking at AUII Futuras for that sort of dosh. Only because I've never liked the styling of the AU XRs.
