Tickford Wings on an EA

greetings.. I have an EA S pack manual ..I put a EL XR6 motor and trans in it (manual).
I want to put Tickford wings on it as its got more Ticky stuff than an early XR8.
I have been told by a few people that it's not really the go...
opinions??

I would say no, other will agree, others will say go for it. Ultimately, do whatever you like, it's your car!

If you want to do it, then go ahead, it's your car and don't worry about what anyone else thinks...

Personally, I wouldn't do it, but whatever you want to do

why not - car design is all about personal taste - if you want to put tickford wings on your car - DO IT!
People who know your car will understand the reason for the wings, and who cares about those who don't know your car!

at least its better than putting Ralliart stickers on a Honda!

I think taking the badges off of cars, rather than adding them looks better :) i wouldnt do it.

My car is powered by FORD 5.8
To avoid breathing difficulties during hard acceleration, it is recommended that female passengers should remove all tight fitting undergarments before entering the vehicle!

Well, the XR8's are pretty much as came from the factory (ie bugger all Tickford work) so IMO my EA is more worthy of the badges

debage all the other badges (except the blue ovals) and jus put tickford badges on the sides. then no one knows wot the heck they are up against!!!


i totally agree with marktx5 - i mean do you think people that paint their cars fluro pink with green stripes do it because ppl said it would look good - i dont think so!! they do it cos they want to!!!

go for it!
