ED Vs. EB XR6

One of my mates has his ED Xr6 for sale.... im looking at upgrading to it.... how much betta is the ED than an EB... and is it worth it? its not going to cost me much money to upgrade, so i figure it'd be worth gettin!
its a 1994 ED XR6, 5spd, Momo Steering wheel, Cruise, Stock 15" mags, 2.5" mandrel bent exhaust (redback), CAI, Bonnet Repainted (several stone chips), 10 stacker, polynesian green. (147k)
is it worth a 500$ upgrade...
mine is a 1993 EB2 S-XR6, 5spd, Momo Steering wheel, Cruise, EF 16" XR8 mags,
Cd player, Black Pearl. (130k)
any ideas would be great!!! ... just gotta love those front lights!!!

Re: ED Vs. EB XR6

Theoretically it could be a poofteeth slower than the EB because of weight but it wouldn't be enough not to grab the ED goodies and updates.

Re: ED Vs. EB XR6

$500 sounds good.
know the history of it?
how is yours running?
the mods alone on his car make it a bargain for upgrading, just depends on the nic of both cars i guess.

Re: ED Vs. EB XR6

In my opinion, it would come down to which vehicle has lower kms. It is well worth it if the ED is in better condition, but conversely it would be a decent 'upgrade' going from an ED with higher kms to an EB with lower kms.

Engines, etc are basically the same. Most people prefer the ED's styling because of its quad headlight front end, but the EB has a sleeper look which I quite like.

As for extras, we're talking minor things like CFC-free air conditioning where fitted, side intrusion beams in the doors, rear centre lap/sash seatbelt, different (though not necessarily better) 15" wheels, and so forth.

Re: ED Vs. EB XR6

Re: ED Vs. EB XR6

I wouldn't do it.
They are essentially the same car, and yours has less k's plus 16" wheels.
Yours is a better colour too.
