I know they changed the exhaust but I thought they still had a single tip untill the 185. I can't find anything to back me up but I remember before the 185 cars came out we could always spot unmarked police cars around our way cause they had the twin tips when all the other XR8s only had the single.smciner1 said:Twin exhaust tips became standard from the 170 kw EF XR8 in late 1994.
Have to agree, there are stuff all around. I'm looking for one (damn always pick the rare cars to buy), there are plenty of autos but no manuals.RED_EL_XR8 said:The 185Kw was an upgrade release in EL-II, my old red XR8 was one of the 1st released and was registered 24/11/97.
The upgrade included 185Kw engine c/w exhaust mods, A/C included ant no cost, and 16" XR wheels standard.
I had no trouble getting a good trade in, and the vehicle was sold from the yard in under 2 weeks, and looking thru carsales.com.au or drive you will rarely find more than 10 available for sale Australia wide.
It was an excellent vehicle, will no problems other than brake wear, A pair of DBA rotors and performax pads solved that. Otherwise no issues and an top buy if you can score one.
Loved that car. Love the BA XR8 even more.
