CAN ANYONE TELL ME IF THERE IS A UNIQUE ENGINE NUMBER ON THE EL XR8 185KW COMPARED WITH THE 170KW AS I MIGHT BE BUYING A 185KW?
ALSO DO THE XR8 COME STANDARD WITH REAR BOOT SPOILER?

CAN ANYONE HELP ME THESE QUESTIONS.

FORD FANATIC


Don't know about the unique Eng No but easiest way to tell a EL II XR8 is by its Build date >Oct 97 and I am pretty sure spoilers are standard but there is a three leg spoiler you could get.

EF/EL indicators are the same, so are the lights behind it, just the nose cone is different.

EL.

Improved rear end geometry, better motor, trim bodykit. I do prefer the cleaner EF front and tail lights though!

i agree with the tail lights but I like the EL front better on an XR and on a GLI/FUTURA I like the EF front.
