Must be rare. I looked at so many xr6's over 2 months before buying mine and never came across one. Did see the xtra std kit with the extensions and twin wing. Not my cup of tea though

Series one dash will cause u to projectile vomit, go for series 2 or 3, alot better and as someone has said they have better brakes. Pay a little more and get an XR6 with VCT it revs out nicer and is more refined with a little more power but u probably won't feel the xtra herbs out on the road. Go series 3 VCT with 5 speed manual if it can be afforded IMHO.

Nothing against the VCT but I test dove a few of both and must say the HP's were the slightest bit more punchy. The real reason was the a** end loves to swing out in my HP. The IRS was nice though.

i wouldnt get a vct if i were you. unless your keeping it stock...not as many cam upgrades compared to the hp, and that extra power you get is let down buy the extra weight....

Sounds like you guys are talking about the Rebel kit?


Personally, I like the S3... But as someone else said, there's a bee d**k's difference between the s2 and s3.

That rear mesh insert is an option on series 3 xr falcons.I am pretty sure its called a (ford racing bodykit).I have only seen them on au xr8 220 kw series 3 falcons not on xr6.Found an au series 3 xr6 at a ford dealer.Light blue,66 000 on the clock and its like brand new.They want 16 700 for it.I couldnt fault it and drives sweet.
