All I can say is lucky bastard, I can't even afford one of those now, and I definitely couldn't back when I was 17yr old.

Good pull mate, have fun trying to keep that one froim the coppers. I don't know how u'll get away with it, a big red p-plate and a XR8 badge isn't good in their eyes, illegal in fact :?

Ah well good luck to ya, my first car was an 88 Pulsar 5spd :( ah well made up for it 9 months later :wink:

Dude take care.
One of my dads mates bought his son an XR8 (AU) for his 18th birthday, his son went out in it, and killed himself. His dad was destroyed, so be careful and drive sensibly.
Anyways good buy mate, all i need to do is convince my parents to let me buy a BA and i'll be right (will be getting my trust account opened next year).
