EF/EL interior into EA/EB/ED Falcons... why?

I just heard something interesting. It seems people these days are putting later model EF/EL interiors into earlier EA/EB/ED Falcons. Why would you do this, wouldnt it be smarter to buy and EF/EL, its a better and newer car and the interior would be factory rather than a home bodge job.

Re: EF/EL interior into EA/EB/ED Falcons... why?

Why does it have to be a home bodge for a start, and $500 or even $1000 for an interior, you can buy an EF for that price can you, good luck.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Why modify a car at all?

I could have bought an XR6T instead of turboing my EB but I didnt.

Re: EF/EL interior into EA/EB/ED Falcons... why?

Well, since you don't even have a car Steffo, I don't really think you are in a position to ask this question.

If you paid a bit more attention, you would have noticed that most of the EA-ED's that have copped the EF/EL interior job have significant other mods too, like superchargers, turbo's, custom stereo installs and resprays.

And no, the ones I have seen were not a bodge job, as they take the time to make sure everything fits, and all the nuts & bolts are tight, so there is less rattles than most EF's have nowdays.

Like Dellboy said, go find an EF or EL with a turbo, supercharger or tough NA motor, full respray and custom stereo for $500 to $1000.

Re: EF/EL interior into EA/EB/ED Falcons... why?

It just seems ricey to me is all. What is the point of putting a different interior out of another car into yours? Does it improve performance in any way? Seems a 'Hot4s' like thing to do if you ask me.

Yes it improves performace, it improves the performance of the user interaction with their environment as the ergonomics are usually better going from old car to modern car.

Falcon Killer (if you believe what Ford Service Departments have to say about me)
AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...
