Ask me, I drive one he he.
Ok Pro's of AUIII XR6 HP
*More fuel efficient
*Better power gains from modifications
*More toward track oriented performance
Pro's of AUIII XR6 VCT
*IRS - More of a refined handling car
*Rear power windows
*More oriented towards luxury and handling away from the track ie business/family car.
The best balance of all those qualities would be to get an AUIII XR6 VCT in manual. I might also suggest you get a '02 plated one that's been fully optioned like a low km ex Ford exec's car. They are really nice.
The only issue you'll really face is finding an excuse to not drive it! There weren't any recalls done on AUIII XR6's that I know of.
Here's a good link for all the techie stuff on AUIII's - you'll find info for both the AUIII XR6 HP and the VCT in there:
Cheers and good luck,
