    Its all in the kms and maintenance history if you want a keeper. Fortunately, there are enough AU's getting about that finding a 'relatively low km' version for 'relatively cheap' $$ is still possible. Keep an eye on the XR's however as nice examples, especially unmodified Tickford optioned V8's as they are starting to increase in value and becoming harder to find. As more time goes by, it becomes a bit like wearing beer goggles. In the eye's of enthusists the AU's stylng keeps improving with age.
    yep - if this one becomes a lost cause - i will probably make money from the parts - i will sell Norm my tickford wheels and brand new tyres..... The hard tonneau will go, as will the basically new XR6 seats... then flog the car off after that - probably make back what it cost me

    I have to admit that in the few years of ownership of my AU XR8 it had many issues. Nothing however that left me stranded, or made the car unreliable. It was just that every time I took it back for a service they seemed to find lots of things to fix under warranty. These were things I was completely obilvious to. Now THAT is what I call magical healing powers!
