I reckon they should keep the Quad headlight, makes the XR known, and easily recognisable as a XR by Tickford.

I think as long as the XR's retain a look of stylish aggression, I'll be happy. Some form of twin light arrangement would be good, but not necessarily in seperate units. Some kind of R5 / 300+ arrangement would be good I think.

R5 for sure.. And bring back the bloody bonnet vents!

Something that resembles the twin light arrangement is fine by me. As long as it looks cohesive with the front styling I'll be happy..

AM i old fashioned???AS above and a bloody bonnet scoop please to give it a more aggressive look(and make it functional).

A few dollars spent in the right area may assist in extra sales.

YES YES YES,

twin lights should stay!!!

if not twin, then something distinctly different to base model falcons. but the twins do that very nicely so why drop them?

i'm not to sure about a shaker though. suits the older models well, but a more subtle design is needed for newer models, particularly from a functional point of view. what engine has an intake duct on top nowdays?
