Opinions needed

Ok, I'm looking to get a new front bar, I'd like some input into the designs....







Honest opinions would be greatly appreciated!

I'm not a fan of bodykits on XE Falcons. I was happy with the ESP chin spoiler which is really only a piece of rubber than runs along the bottom edge, visually lowering the front without causing clearance probs. XE's just need to be low with w-i-d-e rubber IMO

:)

I'm looking out for front spoilers for XEs at the moment. I've got the front S-pack / ESP bumper + beard at the moment. It looks ok, but something a little out of the ordinary would be better IMO.

I like the one on the green XE, who makes that one?

I like the white one, not too out-there, plus with your car being lowered and all, the others might present some serious clearance problems

I'd pick the middle one, for sure...

Some big lights in the bar would be different and cool... Just in respose to the green car, the lack of Ford badge makes it look badged and cheap, IMO... i dont understand why people do it without smoothing over the inserts.

Yeah, white one isn't bad. Couldn't one of our photoshoppers super-impose the primed bumper on to the white XE to see how it looks?

To be totally blunt I'm not a big fan of body kits for 80's and early 90's falcons. The Au is the only shape that really looked good with the body kit.
Falcons of that year look better just neat and stock slammed on there guts with twin pipes.
If I had to choose I'd say the white one.

Yes, I agree with this.

Here's what I did to the front of my XE way back when ... um ... 1985.

As I said in performance Ford putting plastic on a XD/E ruins there clean/bold lines. The right stance from wheels & ride height can make them look awesome
a splash of orange doesn't hurt either
