I think an inch out of the ride height will make it look much better and still not attract to much attention

Thumbs up

First thing is first, dump that bad boy on its guts!!!

It has to be low, real low!!!

I used to drive a XD Fairmont Ghia, so I'll give you tips on what I did to mine.

It looks as though you have already gotten rid of the Ford barge on the grill. Good work.

Second. Get a set of XF side view mirrors. Piss easy to fit, and gives the car a more modern look.

Third. XE Tail lights. I think they look better than the XD ones. I wouldn't fit the XF ones, as I don't think they suit XD's.

Forth. Tint the windows.

They are the few easy modifications that I think you can do to a XD, which will make it look fat and mean.

the only problem i have with lowering it, is that those front tyres already scrape

Mate it loks like those tyres are WAAYYY too big for your car. All i'd do is leave it as is and just.. 1. DEFINATELY Lower it... 2. Fit late models rims etc 3. Take off pin striping and any other stick on bits like door lock surrounds etc

Theres a one owner XD near my house... All stock except lowered, looks AWESOME! no spoilers no bonnet scoops no custom interior. Looks mean and clean
