Find me a stock AU XR6 that can match the kilowatts of my new BA XR6, or out handle it on twisty mountain roads, or looks as good as my blueprint example, then tell me I didn't just buy a 'real' XR6!

Comments like that will earn you nothing but scorn from those like myself who've just bought one.

EXACTLY JR. Some people just don't have a clue. The BA XR6 has 3kw and 32nm less torque than an Au XR8!!!! It is the most powerful XR6 apart from the 240T ever produced has twice as many cams and valves as an AU3 XR6 VCT and handles better with much better ride quality!!! Its also 5 grand cheaper than an AU3 XR6 VCT with a bodykit standard!!! Opps I am sorry! I forgot, it can't be as good cause it does not have an oil pressure and a battery voltage metre!!! JEZZ SOME PEOPLE OUGHTA GET A CLUE!!!!

Excellent package, 17" mags, bodykit, looks good to me.

No offence, but it still a nothing compared to the AUI185KW XR8 , the old V8 got some killer start that leaves only rubber behind.

The new XR6 or the XT doesn't start that good for some reason! though it has max torque on a low 3250 rpm I think...

I've said it before and I'll say it again, different cars for different markets. Many buyers out there do not want a XR6, they don't want agressive looks and bodykits they just want something conservative.

Actually it's Max torque of 450Nm @ 2000 to 4500rpm. I'm sure those so inclined to do so will smoke their fair share of tyres with the BA turbo
