Just love the EL XR8. What a presence and a fine example.
No need to change a thing!

VanGelder - Thanks for fixing up the links. I knew i stuufed up somwhere.

Like to keep the car looking real and no over done. Ive seen so many EF/EL xr's where people have gone over the top on making it look good. Might try and get myself a set of wheels, possible EL GT's, AJR or FR18. But all depends on price. Oh and photos were taken at a local tennis court north of melb

love the car mate i think u should lower it a little more though and piss off that rear spoiler IMO but other than that it looks sweet say u would be paying a lot for the insurance looking at that P plate not to mention the coppers would be all over you watching ya

Nice car man. Another P plater with an XR8! Good work Bud. I was loking at a few EL XR8's before I came apon a lovely AU1 XR8 that I couldn't refuse.

Coming out of owning an EL XR6 manual for a year and half I can say that they are a really nice car. I had EL GT mock ups so I can only recommend getting yourself some of those or genuine's if you can afford them.

Is your's manual? If you're coming to hathcote I'd really like to line up with you in my new beast! Happy Motoring mate.

Thanks for the replies guys. I Havnt taken the car down calder yet but id like to. Lookin at those photos, only thing noticeable is lowered suspension and tinted windows. Like i said i like to keep it under wraps. To tell you the truth, having the car for over 2 yrs now i have never been pulled up by a single pig. The tend to focus on the commodores around my area. Hey when is the trip to Heathcote on anyways?

Hmm... EL XR8 - check! Heritage green - check! TwinSystem™ - check! Modified - check! Top choice mate, a man after my own heart, and a man of impeccable taste, to be sure!!! :s6: :fluffy:

Considered getting the red stripes colour coded? As soon as I have sold my 2nd car (the not-so-mighty Telstar), mine will be getting this done.. here is a photochop preview of what it may look like...

I looked into getting the sripes color coded but decided against it. I kinda prefer the red stripe. Makes the car standout more, where as without the stripe, it could pass by as a normal falcon. I think ford actually released a few xr's with a coloured stripe at some stage. Dont know if im rite tho
