Re: AUII XR8: What to look for when buying
2km increments means cop car (I just got an AU1 XR8 ex-coppa).
Other than that, no major issues to look out for in the car. The V8 is a strong engine, so 80,000km is not a lot, and everything else would be the same as your XR, except for the IRS, which is fine anyway - I have not heard or experience any tyre wear issues etc with this setup. If it's a manual, you may want to look out for the usual gearbox gremlins associated with manuals (sloppy changes, strange noises etc). Same for an auto, too, I guess.
As for price, low to mid 20's - say $22k would be a great price, but it depends on what they are offering on yours. Changeover should be 2 to 5.
