Welcome to FordForums XRFutura! :beerchuge
Is that a Futura with an XR front? Looks good. Any mods?

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.

[i]upgraded Breaking system......custom Plates "I'm A Devil" (IMADVL)..190KW.. 6Pac.. [/B]
Nice looking car ..... but

I thought the upgraded "breaking" system was only a feature found on Commodores:s6:

Plate looks a little like 1 MAD VL too......

Run Forrest , Run.......

Welcome to the mad house.

I've seen those plates before ....... I'm sure you live around the corner from me near a school???

The car looks great, I'll keep a eye out around the area so I can have a close up look.

Tongue Plates and Mods etc

I know what the plates look like thats why there is an coma in between the letters etc...
The break mods are using the same priciple as per commodore I found that it was running a bit heavy on the front breaking so the mods were made to reduce this problem... more of an evening out of breaks and larger break lines etc...

When I ordered the plates I honestly did not occure to me that it may have read 1madvl.... because the I looks like it could be a 1...

the paint work and the front end was only fitted a couple of weeks ago.. By Penrith Smash Repair.. and I can say it stands out from the XR pack due to the Mocafoam colour....

Nice car mate!

As a I6 owner myself, I am also interested in your secret mods :s6: :s6:

How much was the xr front bar and how much was it to have it painted?
