confused GT Stripes on XR Models

Over the last few weeks I've noticed a lot of non-GT cars going around with the stripe package. I've seen an stock XR 6 with the stripes, including GT decals. I've also seen XR 6s and 8s with plain stripes, without any decals. Just recently I saw a couple of cars with the GT stripes but with "XR" written where the GT or GT-P symbol normally goes.

Does anyone know whether this has become a Ford option or whether this is a non-factory after market thing, or, a combination of both?

Re: GT Stripes on XR Models

I don't like seeing them as I get all excited and then feel let down that it is not a real GT or GT-P.

Re: GT Stripes on XR Models

XR with cosmetic modifications so it looks like a GT?

Agreed. Leave the GT stripes on GTs.

Re: GT Stripes on XR Models

If you can't afford a GT, don't try to copy one, it turns a nice XR into a tryhard car imo.

Re: GT Stripes on XR Models

Pretty much every dealer offers it as an option - something about customer demand I would presume.

Wait till BA 2 comes out and XR's get the GT pedal covers. Boy aren't you all gonna have the shits...
