My New XR6 has the headlight protectors fitted. I always thought that the XR's looked a bit meaner without them, however when I was thinking about taking them off, I saw that holes have been drilled to fit them. This is a concern, since basically you can't take them off.
Do you think XR's look better WITHOUT the headlight protectors ?
I will try to put a poll, but if it dosen't work can someone else put the poll up.
Wheels: 17" Series 1 XR
Exhaust: VCT with no resonators & 3" mandrel from mufflers back, dump pipe
Pacemaker headers (Waste of money).
Air Intake: T-Series, K&N Filter.
Brakes: Calipers painted red, DBA slotted rotors & Lucas pads.
Fuel: Dual Fuel.
Dyno: 143 rwKw (Dynodynamics - shootout mode).
Heathcote: 15.87 @ 89.1 Mph.
I voted before reading the question! i.e. I think they look shyte.
Make that head light protectors in general.
Not sure why people spend big money to get a car that looks great then spoil it with these things.
Same go's for car-bras. They're ok if you're doing like Melbourne-Sydney runs or something but driving around with them all the time? Why buy a car that looks good if all you're going to do is hide it?
There's nothing like thrashing your boss's car! :s6:
Don't like the late model XR headlamp cover, especially now that I know they drill holes to fit them...:fmad:
Car Bras aren't worth the hassle IMO, apart from looks they are a pain in the @rse to put on and take off, you aren't supposed to get them wet, the fold up tbs don't always stay in place, and how in the hell are you supposed to get the bugs off them?
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
Gotta say i'm not a fan of the AU XR headlight covers. My opinion is if Ford were to make head lights of the XR's why not make them recessed in and cover only the lenses, that way it doesn't change the contour of the front of the car.
Another idea is those light stick on skins that Dick Johnson advetises, if they made them for the AU XR's i reckon they'd protect the lenses and are un noticable.
