Just for you guys and gals that didn't know, there is a great factory Body kit, suspension etc. for the XT and Futura
(18" wheels compliments of me) but gives you an idea of what can be achieved. With a 220 V8 onboard she’s looking better than a SV8 IMO and similar price.
its a nice kit, but it just seems to be a little to "classy" if thats the right word, and not aggressive enough, just my opinion though...

I have to say i don't think the photo does it's justice especially with the roof racks. But i've said it when i read the latest Wheels an XT with option 5.4L 220kw V8 in manual with a suble bodykit and wheels would be a nice sleeper.
But i have to say the SV8 is quite light and with 235kw it will have abit of go.

Hey, it took me a whole 15 minutes to lower that car, tint the windows and enlarge the wheels!!!
I agree that the roof racks should have been removed (Sorry). I reckon the BA shape looks quite wide and fat as it is, agreed the XR kit looks better, but compare it to the kit on the SV8 ???? (there isnt one, with exception of a spoiler).
