Hey fellas,
couple months ago i was talkin about getting a new car of a mate. Well i finally got it to night.
Its a ED XR6 Colbolt Blue 5-Speed manual. It has BA XR6 17" wheels, a BA XR6T radiator and thermo fans for spares cos he was guna put them on. It is lowered and comes with the factory Momo steering wheel with cruse control, it also has a factory sunroof. He just replaced the Master cylinder, a heater hose in the dash, the head gasket and i think there was some other stuff as well but i cant remember.
There is a few things wrong with it mostly little things, like the button side to lock all the doors on the dash doesnt work, cruz doesnt work but i havent looked into them yet so they could be little things that r stoping them from working. the only major thing wrong is that it has a bent Axle but that is a quick easy fairly cheap fix.
I got it all for $500!!!


Nar jokes im paying $3500 but he has joined the army so he gave it to me for $500 but i have to pay him back as i get money cos i currently dont have a job.

What do u guys think?


Cheers

Nice car. How did you get the BA wheels to fit ? I thought they wouldn't go on EA to EL.

They are real BA XR rims, they all fit normally but the rear ones rub. But yea he bought billet spacers or whatever u call them. So now i have 40 wheel nuts on it yay.

Hey i met up with a guy on this last night, i cant rememebr what he said his screen name is but he owns a EL XR6 manual and yea we had a chat, if you see this mate let us know who u r so i know.
Good race as well, i really liked it when u left the commodore in ur dust!
It was a good night. Nice meeting you. I might see you on friday night

yea mate we will definatly have 2 go for a XR cruz, once i get it regoed and my licence back (i get it 2morrow but i still gota get the car regoed)
I could always just take the rego sticker of my other ED XR6 and put it on the other 1, the cops would never know the difference :lol: !!!

I got get new tyres then maybe service it then we can have another race, maybe find some commis 2 smash but it did surprisingly well for an old commie!
