confused Found an ED XR6 and need advice

FALCON ED,XR6,5SPD MANUAL, 270,000kms, 4 months rego, extractors, Redback 2-1/4ins exhaust, King Dragon air filter, very dark factory tinting, pwr steer, air cond, CD player, alloy wheels, unwanted sale -$8900

The guy said the car is in very good condition. Just wanted to know if this is good value for money or should i bring the price down a bit more because of the high kms. Also how many kms can the tickford engines usually last for. Thanks heaps anything u can tell me will be greatly appreciated

Re: Found an ED XR6 and need advice

Menco, sounds alright... but 9k can get you a long way.
I think 270,000 is a bit high for the dollars, there is no way the paints going to be shmick unless its been bingled.

I picked up my EF XR6 man for 10k with 190,000.
Cheers, Casey.

Re: Found an ED XR6 and need advice

No... 270 aint bad, falcons can do twice as many no probs, tho the price is a bit to high for the kays... i got mine for 9k... http://www.fordgallery.com/showgalle...0/ppuser/13500
very similar to the one mentioned but lower kays...... ohhh yeh does it have the momo wheel too? i wouldnt worry bout the kays too much... engine can be rebuilt if u are worried but i wouldnt bother!!! have it checked by a trusted mechanic and if all is sound and u like it go for it!!! theyre a great car!!! best of luck, cheers

Re: Found an ED XR6 and need advice

Yeh, way to high in price for the k's.
I wouldn't pay more than $7000 for that.

Re: Found an ED XR6 and need advice

remember... u dont have to buy it if u think they r askin too much... u can only try, saying that 8 k isnt too bad, things to bargain him down with tho...
pay cash! usually helps with the bartering...
the kays are a bit high...
does it have the momo wheel???
rego due in 4 mnths... worth a shot!
what condition is the tyres/brakes in?

best of luck! cheers

Re: Found an ED XR6 and need advice

um i wouldnt have a clue if it has the momo wheel. I had a look in the redbook and they said 5,700 - 7,800 is what they r worth. Ill do my best to get him down sayin that ive talk to ppl about it and wat they said if he wants the cash then he'll have to accept my offer. Im not too sure on the tires and brakes or anything else i live 600 or so kms away from him so yeah. And ofcourse im not goona decide to buy it until ive had racq check it out and had a good look myself
