Hi all the xr8 has started to be striped out to make way for some bills an most of all a new toy.
Its a ed fairmont ghia with full eb gt body kit an new 18s an new paint job. motor is stock but i picked up a xr6 head for it.

Just waiting on the roady an then go pick it up.

Once i get it home. The head lights are the first thing to go. Going to use me old eb ones i like the look with the eb gt bars an standed lights better. Then look at the boot spoiler i think ill add the xr8 boot lip as well. Car comes with 2liters of the same paint. Add me number plates an away we go again.

Not usually a fan of chrome rims and bodykits. But this looks cool
How much was it. And how much would you want for the front light set up.

I noticed that it looks like it's really low mileage for it's age, which isn't a bad thing if it's genuine mileage. The car looks neat enough for it to be genuine.

Cheers

Thought it was the Ebay one. Looks like a good buy, but are you going to be satisfied with 6cyl power, after having a Xr8?

I just took my Xr8 for a spin this evening, with a working accelerator peddle. Mmmmmmmm, v8 + T5 = :mrgreen:

Cheers

I can feel the difference from the 8 to the 6. But i am very happy to have a 6. Once i sort out a few things Ill up the power a little. But in the end nothing beats a v8
