Anyways, I want a EA or a EB falcon, and I don't know what to get. Money isn't really a problem, ($7000 to spend :)).
I was wondering if it would be better to start big, EB XR6 (XR8 too thirsty :() or go for something a bit cheaper and modding it? (tires/suspension/brakes first, want to gain experiance before I try driving something really powerful) I would also like to maybe mod a 302/350 into it a few years down the track :)
well definitely go for the EB. an EA may have too many problems for a 1st time buyer. youll be hard pressed to find a decent xr6 for $7000 though. just find a well looked after EBII GLi and mod it. an ED would be even better.
E-Series Represent! Since 2004 1993 ED Falcon XR6 - Dynamic White
Lukey Extractors, Mandrel Bent 2.5" Exhaust w/ High Flow Cat & 2 Hotdogs, Kings Springs Super Lows, KYB Short Throw Shocks, DBA Slotted Rotors [F], RDA Standard Rotors [R], Bendix Advance Pads, K&N Panel Filter
If you plan on doing the suspension up heaps and a few kws don't bother you I wouldn't even bother with an EB XR6. Go find a clean EB II Fairmont, you'd probably even get an ED Fairmont with that money.
You can mod them to out perform an XR6 easily without paying much.
Yah go with a good condition thats been well looked after Eb or ED with low k's or ya might be lucky enough to find a XR in good condition, IMO try and find a manual might be rare but would be better off in the long run in mods and stuff.
GL and GLi are pretty much the same thing, they just changed the name for EBII. Or was it EB 1, I forget.
As for security, if someone wants something, they will take it, even if they flat bed it away and start it later. A stockish GLi isn't going to be much of a target for anyone but joy riders, who would find Smartlock a bit of a challenge and go for something easier most likely. But still, Smartlock isn't THAT hard to get around.
