FPV F6 vs FGX xr6 turbo

Recommended Posts

I have an option of 2 cars im incredibly stuck on...
2008 FPV f6 with 100,000km ($26,000)
or
2015 FGX xr6 turbo with 50,000km ($30,000)

The FPV f6 will retain a lot of its value and its already modified a bit and making 300rwkw (about $2500 worth of mods), and it has brembo brakes and simply the FPV badge.
Where as the FGX is the newer car, under warranty, and its just a fresh new car that not many people have atm. And I really do love the new FGX front design with the lights.

Where as the fpv's have been around for a while now and every person has modded them and stuff, so I can be a bit more original and stand out more in the fgx?

I have driven both and they both drive really well. Just unsure which one to buy. I do plan on keeping the car for a while.
Just wondering of the 10 year old FPV is too old now, and whether its 'smarter' tobuy the new car despite it being much more subtle than the FPV. Eventually I will modify both and want them to stand out as much as possible.
So torn apart help!!!!!!!!!

Get the newer car in this case I say.

 

old cars suck, everything starts to go wrong on them.

 

deep down I'd want the F6 too but you really are best to get the newer car.

if your willing to spend up to 30k on the fgx, why dont you find a newer F6? for same money?

 

either way you cant go wrong.

 

dont worry about which has a bigger turbo, you will upgrade both in the end anyways.

Look for 30K F6. Has the bigger turbo which is capable of close to 500rwkw. The little boy (baby turbo) runs out of puff.....

The newer dash, ICC, reversing cam etc is something you can't really add to the F6

 

You'll notice them day to day.

 

The bigger turbo - you can add that to the FGX

 

You won't notice that day to day,

 

Are you after a car to drive or a car to keep value on?

There is a new ICC a South Australian mob are selling which is pretty trick for the B series. However I'd wait to see what the longer term longevity is of the unit first.  Not that I'd let that sway your choice either.

last time I saw I thought f6 turbo only good for low 400s if that. ? 

 

up to legal road speeds the xr if faster anyways. always laughed at that!

I've also not seen nor heard of a stock turbo F6 exceeding the 4's.  In fact the best I've seen was a modified stock unit running e85 in the low/mid 4's.   Needless to say other things start breaking in the 5's (eg driveline)

Yep, Freaky is right, low 400's on E85 and just barely can break 400rwkw on 98 if you've got every other supporting mod available haha
