Default Manual AU 2 or 3 XR8

Must be in excellent condition, think enthusiasts car.
Not Black or Silver, manual, less than 150,000km and well looked after.

That's because it's Galaxy blue. Now if it was Narooma, your inbox would have been flooded!

I'm guessing that's why it didn't sell, i've been watching them over the past 14 months. The good autos seem to stay for sale for quite a while before the price drops and they sell. The good manuals seem to be selling within 4 weeks.

Problem is people seem to be asking mega dollars for the manuals these days and even the autos are starting to climb up again I've noticed

Depends what mega dollars is, i think 10-12k is fair for a good, clean, honest example. From what I have seen manual have been selling for between 8-11k

I suppose what people are asking and what people are actually selling for are two different things

I remember you looking for a bf gt mate, if you have similar cash maybe stretch it out for something more special like a te50 etc.

Yeh i was mate, ended up buying an immaculate E series Clubsport as I just got sick of waiting for a GT (still to this day one hasn't come up with the specs i wanted). Want to free up some money and buy a car that I can work on and not be nervous about. I've always loved the AUXR and i think they will hold their value as well.

Yer mate that's fair enough, for a while now ive been wanting the pull the trigger and get a el xr6 manual In the dark blue colour for a bit now, theres been a few tidy ones appear occasionally but not having a job for a few months now has ****ed things up for myself, there on the up in price so I want one regardless as its going to be a cheap now classic for later on, kind of reminds me, pridenjoy has mentioned a few times about possibly selling his au3 xr8 as its starting to **** him up the wall, maybe message him to see how keen he could be for a deal to sell.

Yeh, ELXR8 is easily my favourite 90's Ford. Would have one in a heartbeat. I only want to spend 11k max and pridenjoy will want more. I missed out on a Herrod one a month or so back and a few others. They are out there, just need to be patient. Now I've the the clubby and back in a V8 I'm not in a huge rush

Ive spent money like that and sell afterwards. Sometimes things change and sometimes the challenge is over. It'd be worth a look
