does the 'opt20' still apply to BA's. A local car yard is selling a BA XR6, auto, white with the nudge bar and driving lights, has an aerial base in the centre of the roof and dark tint.

Yeah youre right dealers don't know what theyre selling, even though it says in the log book that the original owners were the police... I got my OPT20 1996 EF with 129,000kms for only $3750 last month and it is still running perfectly.

BA's dont have OPT20 in them, nor do they have a different instrument cluster/bem/ecu or anything. Sometimes they have factory optioned LSD's, and usually futura spec interior (4 power windows, rear map lights etc) the rest of thestuff comes from computer programming with a PDS/WDS

I recently bought and resold an OPT20 EF in RED (it belonged to FESA not the police) for $2000. Sold it onto a friend for the same but yeh. it was a nice car

im in wa and got a eb II ex copa stil had the log book registered to the comissoner of polise and dose have the opt20 marking on the compliance plate.and she aint speed limitedwhen this motor wasgood hadher up over 205. . gave my mate arace in his el he stoppedat 180 i kepted going. so yeh id say no limitar .

bad thing is now i have a manual in it with differnt comp.and soon to be el motor in it. but when do u need that much speed. u wontget that over a 1/4 mile so no point.

other thing ive changed the diff and rear sus just froint to do now. oh and doeshave dual horns. and on the back ofthe dash it has police spec written on it. and alsothe center interior light has no globe holding just bunch ow wires which i got told were for the roof mounted lights.

and dont forget the wholes in the dash! and the odd spare cables leading to nothing but plugs.
