For a Series 1 AU XR8, i wouldn't pay more than about 12k, if its immaculate, and is fully optioned up.
For the Series 2's and 3's it would go up to around the 18k mark.
Nah 200,000kms for the windsors, means it basically just run in.
You shouldn't notice anything different from one with less than 100,00km's.

Motor will be hardly worn at 200 thousand.

But things like colling systems, power steering systems, transmissions etc will warrant closer inspection than the motor.

From what i can remember my mate picked up an AUII XR8 black, manual with easily less then 200,000km on the clock, it had leather interior and premium sound for about 14,000 and that was about 12months ago.
