Don't worry about the seat-belt tag showing, every second EF is the same, including mine.

if its been hit in the front check all the bolts where the quarter panels connect to the engine bay. If the bolts have been taken off you can tell buy some paint being missing,scratches/ chiped paint on the bolts.

Re: how to tell if your vechiel ahs been in accident?

You can call REVS and find out if it is a previously written off vehicle. My mate just bought a Magna that was. He checked it first and bought it anyway, cause he liked it and it was really cheap and he's a bit dumb.

Re: how to tell if your vechiel ahs been in accident?

Gday mate. Heard you got your self an XR6. Might come up this afternoon and check her out. Is it manual? Not shure whats REVS stands for but you go through them to check details of cars to see if they are stolen, ridden off, ect. Good to see your stickin with the blue oval.

Re: how to tell if your vechiel ahs been in accident?

Yuor murds aer a mit buddled...but I understand!! Don't EF Ford's have a small sticker on each panel with a number on it? I thought that was how you could tell if a panel had been changed on one of those...all the panels should have same numbers on each sticker?? I know they did it on ED's!! If you want to know if your car is a genuine EF Falcon XR6...I'm pretty sure that if your EF Falcon has a Tickford XR6 engine code on it's identification plate,then it should be a genuine XR6?? I do not know what the code is,but someone on here should know what it is,and if I am right or not?...goodluck!!
