Nice car, makes me wish I could afford one, than I'd bugger the idea of turboing my XF and go for one of them for sure :D

Nice one XLR8. And I still fancy those original 17" wheels

Take good care of her mate, if she ever needs anything, make sure you give it to her

Thumbs up

Same colour as mine good choice. I have seen those plates on another car somewhere

What mods have you done and what are you planning on doing.
Auto or manual?

And what are your thoughts comparing the AU to EL

Thanks for your comments...

HSE2,
I had plates on my EL, dont think anyone else has had them!!
Au is an Auto, current mods are exhaust and future mods at the moment include lowering, brakes (standard are crap!!) and series 2 bits (like yours!!!!!)

Not sure if i am going to put driving lights into new nose, they were on the car when i got it...

I think the Au is great, i think it handles better and puts power down heaps better. I am disapointed in the specs though e.g no engine cover, no height adjustable seat belts and no door lock button.....all of which my EL Had
Just installed alarm which locks doors when you start engine.
Does yours have selt belt height adjustment??? do you know if i can upgrade mine???

here is another pic of driving lights

Why would you want an engine cover? All it does is trap heat thus reducing performance, and the extra weight

Yeah i know what you are saying and agree (not much weight though)
I just like the look of the series 2 cover

Just remembered another mod, replaced factory air intake scoop with T-Series
