Re: What price for AU XR6.....?

$24k is a bargin, I'd start with $26 and give yourself room to move. Is it a HP or VCT?

The Marketplace would be a better forum to post this in

You'd have more luck with potential buyers. Good luck with the sale though!

Re: What price for AU XR6.....?

I reckon $24k would be top dollar - it's a 98 model, so it's now 5 years old. I've seen them on the lots here for around $20k (with no mods though).

Re: What price for AU XR6.....?

Do a search of Carpoint, Carsales and Trading Post Online and check out the competition.

I recently tried to sell mine. It's a standard AU1 XR6 with series 2 XR 17" rims but had higher K's on the clock than most of the others. $19,000 and no bites!!! Decided to keep it rather than give it away.

Sorry to say this but you've got no hope, it's a buyers market for used cars. Still, give it a go, you've got nothing to lose.

Re: What price for AU XR6.....?

Bearman - exactly the reason I'm keeping mine. Not that I've tried to sell it, but It's worth more to me than just the money. I reckon I'd be lucky to get $20k for mine, but it owes me more like $40k and is still a great car.

One of these days I'm going to S/C or Turbo it.

Re: What price for AU XR6.....?

If you want variation the AU2 Ghia is basicly a VCT XR6 with lots of goodies. (climate control, 6stacker, leather, wheel, alloy spare)
The standard suspension is about half way between XR & Std, XR suspension is available for $1200 (sports pak).

There are lots of these ex public service at the auctions for 20k +/-.
The VCT & Ghia have IRS so they handle better but weigh more.

Re: What price for AU XR6.....?

memphis,

Simply putting specs doesn't do it's justice for a car price. Maybe i'm the minority here but i would pay up to $4k more than market price if the car is in immaculate condition (And yes i'm picky with cars).
Combine that and what kind of buyer you have will determine the price. However if it's a dealer tradin they will tend to use ballpark figures.
