Quote from: sparkplugThe XR8 Sierra is really nice to drive except for the lack of PAS. Bhav the secretary of the XR4Register has one which I've driven from time to time. As for what to look out for check the normal mk1 sierra weak points like rear arches etc. The thing I would ensure though is originality including the massive rear diff, front spats and front grill which are all different to other sierras. Even the seats look different to any sierra I have seen and are very comfortable. Bhav has got some spares like clutch cables and hoses from SA though original spats and grills are not available any more only copies. Other mk1 sierra grills do not fit correctly either. The rear brake disks are unique to the car and Bhav had to get AP Racing to make a set of discs up which were not cheap, it was to do with the number of bolts used to attach the rotor to the bell being non standard.If you want Bhav's number to discuss further message me and I will pass it on.Dave
