Question Its genuine or nothing, gentleman

Im told at work today that you wont be able to buy any FPV stuff for your car unless you can supply a genuine build number for your car. That means no body add-on's, interior bits or badges etc.

What do you guys think?

will it protect the image of the brand that Ford are establising?

There's no substitute for cubic inches!

No other maker does this to my knowledge - not even AMG. It would deprive mere mortals from harmless steering wheel, etc upgrades for their XR8s and so on...

HSV has the same policy.

They won't even let you put a Clubsport wing on a Senator! Well that was the case back in 2000 when I was interested in a Senator.

I can see how they are trying to protect the individuality of the fpv cars. but i would like to see fpv designed kits to upgrade non fpv cars; pod filters/induction kits, exaust systems etc as there is quite a big market for it.

buying hot bits from ford for your ford.

i think 61sg has the right idea.

It's better to remain quiet and let people think you are a fool then to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Well they have the Havoc bodykit for Falcon now, so I wouldn't be surprised if they have something similar for BA.

We were told the same about Tickford remember - but that soon went out the window. Fact is, if there is a dollar to be made out of selling something they will do it - and to hell with customer loyalty or anything else.
