New AUII XR8 engine noise???
I am thinking about buying a new AUII XR8 that a local dealer still has sitting around. The price seems good at $38888 + ORC (~$42000) but when I took it for a test drive the engine sounded like it was pinging a bit under heavy load.
Anyone know what this could be as the car only has 50kms on it???? I read somewhere that some new windsors have had problems with piston slap and it really didn't sound like noisy lifters. Also, I know they are meant to take premium unleaded so I am assuming it isn't the motor pinging because the first fill of fuel is normal ULP.
