Get both!

AU III XR6 for Superior braking & handling around corners. 8-)

BA for straight line cruising. :lol: :lol:

Location: Cairns

Go the AU for the more aggressive appearance and better handling and braking as previously mentioned. Plus the discs in the AU dont warp like the BA's do.
The BA are a good cruising car but if you do have the extra cash spare from buying one (most likely since the XT's are almost $5k cheaper then a good AU3 XR6) then you can do the exhaust, intake and chip and lowering and mags with the change left over.

But I'ld go the AU3 XR6... Manual of course.

not really.
it's a base model, the looks are boring at best.
a ba is not faster than an au 3 xr6.
and the au handles better and is a fair bit lighter.
