Hey all,

Looking for an xr8 sprint, auto. Has to be low KM. Let me know what you have. I'm in Vic but that's not a huge concern.

Thanks.

Are they reasonably priced? There are far too many dreamers out there causing the market to become static as others copy the ridiculous prices.

Any colour but black, as close to zero km as possible, and South of 70k. For a 6, same deal but south of 60k.

I would be looking for something with around 20k km+, you would save yourself abit of coin, well run in and most problems sorted like diff etc
The very low km sprints you would be paying 10-15k more

Yeh but with 20k on it, it'd feel too much like someone else's car lol. The new feeling would have gone. Been eyeing off the 300 SRT, it's not a bad piece of kit also.

300C dog handler but wow great bit of kit.
I like em much as well but when I get in my manual Sprint I'm still getting the jizzz's being in it and the new smell still lingers everytime getting in.
Why the re approach Prof ?

The 2019 SRT has adaptive damping and all manner of weird brake pad-realigning automation and so on, so it handles better. Bit like how a 100ft yacht handles better than the Titanic. Either way they're interesting as a cruiser.

I've nearly paid the Mustang off and I'm just testing the water to see if there are any new or low km 8s still out there, which I know now there are, as I'm craving that new Falcon feeling again lol. I miss what the car stood for, and looking at it as I walked away from parking it. I don't regret selling the other one, but I would like to see if it's be possible to try again. If not, no biggie.

yer haven't driven the 2019 SRT - but from another POV not long ago I spoke to a few of our HWP boys for they normally fill up at one of the servos I frequent.
One was in a VF, XR8 and the 300.
Said the 300 is a dog for them.

Yes I get the FGX feeling especially being the last, I'm loving having it and now so rare on the roads I love that !
When I see one its DRL's are fantastic to see and so different
Wish you luck mate.
