Hey guys, I am in the market for a new car to replace the tired old EBIIS that I have, originally I wanted an EL XR8 BUT I have recently found a couple of low klm AUII XR8's and now I don't know.
I have heard alot of great things about the EL's, and find I am a bit in the dark about the AU's so hit me with it guys and let me know, thanks

If you can afford the AU2, then go for that instead!

If you can get an AUII XR8, then go for it mate, I bought myself one 3 weeks ago and I still can't wipe the smile off my face! By the way in case you didn't know, the AUII XR8 came out with 200kw, then later as a running upgrade, 220kw.

What's your budget? If you are stretching to get an AU, you may be better off buying an EL (especially EL2) and adding better heads/exhaust etc to get the power up to AU2/3 spec, but with the EL weighing less, you will have better acceleration etc.

Though the AUs do have IRS, which is a big plus in the handling department.

I would choose any of the AU series over the EL. Even the AU1 with 185kw and IRS was a very quick machine. A few mods and its close to 200kw anyhow.

Get the AUII, better to drive and also MUCH Better headlights.

The AU II wins hands down for value for money.
