G'day guys, i've posted a couple of pics over the last few months i'll find the links to the threads......
this one is before the body kit but after the gt-p wheels and koni suspension...

this thread has two pics, both with the xr kit.
How many kilometres has your Ford done lately?
The suspension cost me $1200 installed and it sits about 1.5 to 2 cm lower than the xr6. with king lows and koni shocks. (i got trade deal though, and it may be more like $1500)
the wheels i got from wheel king and they cost $3000 with tyres. the wheels are the real deal but the tyres are rubbish. Falken is the brand, and i will be getting some bridgestones soon. the wheels are hard to find needing a vin to purchase from ford.
the xr kit is easy to fit yourself, just a matter of jacking the car up and using a socket set. i did only do the front myself and had the panel shop who painted the parts fit the rear spoiler as i didn't want to drill the bootlid myself. the kit including headlights, grill front bar and spoiler cost $1700, but the wrecker traded the old front from the futura for $500. btw, all parts except for the rear spoiler were new, still in ford boxes. painting and rear spoiler installation cost $500.
conan, i now see the merit in just getting the xr6 in the first place, if i could have my time again i'd have a turbo infact. but when i got this car i was only just 20 and wasn't even sure that i should have spent as much as i did. then i caught the mod bug, and now it's a pretty nice piece if machinery. but i'd still love a turbo, and will do it in the next few years.
