Just thought I would mention this for the Adelaide guys/gals. At Jarvis Ford on Portrush Road is a black XT BA with 17" Fairmont style spokey alloys.
That's basically all they have done to this car from standard, but I must say the BA XT in Black with the 17" looks absolutely stunning and worth a look and enough to make a post about it. The black outs in the headlights and the beautiful shapes of the new BA body have this 'basic' model looking very very classy and preditorial.
Its been a while since you could simply wack on some 17"s on a new falcon, sit back and say it looked awesome without adding body kits etc. If any of you out there want an XR, but can only afford an XT, this car with 17"s is one car that you won't feel like your making a big compromise on.
How good do bog stock XT's look?!!!! My God!!!.. and yes put some 17's, a mild bodykit and extra lights and you get that beauty at the sms! Well done Ford very VERY CLASSY. Sorry no photos but take it from me.... IT'S A RIPPER!!

Yeap i must agree that XT with the mild body kit looked great. If the XR6-T or XR8 is out of my reach in the future i'll be looking into an XT optioned with 220kw 5 speed manual in Blue Pearl and premium stereo.
