Its a lot of kays though. You dont know how the car has been treated and id expect something to go wrong with it. The owner may have thrashed it and hasnt let the turbo cool down or never serviced the tranny and diff. It may have full service history but the service intervals on XR6 T's is 15k. Id say thats to long for a T.
XR6T's will end up being the replacement for the VL Turbo back in the day. They will be the new fully sick fully thrashed cars of today.

I didn't end up going for the GT-P... I sure did want it though. Just couldnt justify it to my inner scrooge.
It's just the year for the car I'd say. What married couple with kids wants to buy an 03 gt-p whattza thingy for $25,000 when they could get an 08/09 Omega for the same.
Product knowledge is all it is.
