XR6 Ute

Just wondering what others thought about the XR8 bonnet on the XR6?

I have noticed that one of the Utes on Mclouds Daughters TV Show has had this done.

Re: XR6 Ute with XR8 Bonnet

You have to be kidding dont you?

The bulge is on the 8's for a reason, it'd just be plain wanky to have it on an XR6t.

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

Just as I thought

But has anyone out there done it? Or wouldn't you admit to it?

The difference between the XR8 and the Turbo ute is about $1000. The XR8 bonnet painted and fitted costs about $2000. Why not just buy the XR8, it would be cheaper. As for people doing it I think its just tryhard. Why make it something its not. A definate wank factor of 10.

Agreed.

The XR8 & GT have a Bulge (tm) for a reason.

Re: XR6 Ute with XR8 Bonnet

The price aftermarket of the XR8 bonnet has probably been done so high because of people putting them on other ford cars. Remembering back when VN SS's and HSV's were coming out, coburg and preston were full of plastic fantastic crapheaps trying to imitate the performance models and were cheaply priced.

Heard the other day the Ford XR 18" wheels are $2500 aftermarket too

Re: XR6 Ute with XR8 Bonnet

I dont agree with it happening either, but it was only a matter of time.
Who ever does it first would want to take the XR6 badges off the car, so they dont look like a total looser.
