Thats a reasonable price mate, how much registration left? Waht are the tyres like? any sign of accident damage? Its a series 2 YUMMMMM!!!!

It's a rare car as you probably well aware of. Hate when individuals that have NFI comment. If they had any idea they wouldn't be driving a clag box XH LOL :twisted: .

Goodies like LSD and the sunroof add to that figure so, yes thats not a bad price at all. What sort of gas setup does it have?

Looks like those 13 sec passes still arent happening mate as your back to your old ways. One day you might be happy with yourself, but untill then, throwing comments like that to make yourself feel better is fine, no skin off my nose :wink: I'd rather be driving my XH than what looks like the most disrespected T series in the country with what looks like someone dropped their guts on the bonnet :lol:

About the car, at the end of the day its only a forte with moderate k's. You'll find a 220kw XR for not much more than that, i know what i'd be choosing.

Those 13 second passes will be happening by the way. My T is a beautiful car wether you like it or not. If only you drove it or anyone for that matter.

My video clip on U tube says it all, the car is a (5.0L) god. :)

5.0L god aye? :roll:


I'd say its an ok price for this but the car would have to be in pristine condition for me though.

all said and done about the rare bit but like they said before its a forte other ppl dont know about how many where produced and so on. i think if u got 12 for it good luck to u, especially in the eastern states whereas in w.a u would have alot better chance of getting it. i would buy it but im not a huge fan of bbq fuel.

They are some nice options, but $12k sounds way too much...no more than $10k IMO.

yeah id say about 10, 12 is alot for a AU forte even though it does have those options. You could pay 2-3 gran more and get a XR8 or somthing.

I'll add to their sediments.
I just sold my AU2 XR8 ute for 13k.
Ok it didnt have a sunroof, but a 6cyl Forte will probably fetch 6k, maybe 7-8k with those mods. The V8 certainly helps the price, but see if you can get him down on price.
He probably wants to recoup some costs on the purchase price, because that car would have cost a bit with those options.
(Doesn't mean its worth much more than a stock one now though)
