EB XR6: Did I get a good deal?

Hi people, I am picking up an EB XR6 on Thusrsday and the details follow, what I want to know is did I get a good deal, I think I did, but would like others opinions.
* 5 speed manual
* black
* tint
* lowered with front end camber kit
* eb gt clear indicators
* 16" ford mags of some description (will post pics as I dont know what type they are)
* 137,000 genuine km's with service history.
The car is in excellent condition with the following items needing attention for the RWC (which I have to get)

* One unRWC tyre
* Needs a new clutch (I think)
* Passenger door keyhole is damaged from break in attempt

I paid $5250 for this car, so I reckon I got a good deal, but can anyone tell me how much a new heavy duty clutch will cost me. Thanks in advance for your feedback guys,

Cheers, Michael

P.S. The reason I agreed to get the rwc is that the owner is leaving to live O/S in about 10 days and simply CBF'D

Re: EB XR6: Did I get a good deal?

Sounds like a very good deal. Even with the repairs required for the RWC, you should be pretty happy with it. You going to put your 17" AU2 wheels on it?

The 16" wheels sound like the optional tickford wheels, five spoke configuration.

cool Re: EB XR6: Did I get a good deal?

Yeh I am going to put my AU2 Tickfords on it, should look pretty sweet. As for the current wheels, they dont look like that, they have about 5 small gaps at the edge of the rim, kind of like a eb fairmont wheel but without the angles, just 5 even bits cut out of the whole wheel. Hard to explain, but if I saw them again I would know them. Spose I should go for a look in the gallery!

The wheels are like the ones on this fine vehicle which I found in the gallery.

Hope who ever owns this car doesn't mind me doing this.

Re: EB XR6: Did I get a good deal?

Yep, good get, they are the wheels. What model car are they off and would I get much selling them on their own and whacking some EB2 Ghia Mags on my Gli. Or should I just put them on the Gli and sell it all together?

Re: EB XR6: Did I get a good deal?

They are the XR8 Sprint wheels, 16x7's. Depending on tyre and wheel condition, 1000-1200 for them. I'd be interested in them if I was keeping my XR6. Personally, I'd keep them on the XR6.

Re: EB XR6: Did I get a good deal?

I agree with EBXR (You'll need to change that when you sell yours you know)

They are desirable and good lookin wheels - keep them unless you must have 17"s. They really suit EA-ED's IMHO and came out on the Sprint as stated.

AU2 lookalikes also look good but not as genuine on an E-series car.

A new user name is on the cards once the XR goes to its new home.
