Smile BA XR8 with lower grill

Hi, I know that this topic has been discussed before, but I thought you might like to have a look at the new mesh grill that the local ford dealer put in for me.

The 8 is 5000ks in, everything running scweet and no problems except for a rattle in the back somewhere, which my dealer fixed straight away. The ford guys also painted the hubs (which had become rusty) for me when it was in for the grill fit.

Lovin it.

Re: BA XR8 with lower grill

very nice! I might see your car around... im local too, i noticed the street and the dealer name on the plate surround!

I want too see some of those euro plates on a focus or mondeo, they look really good on BMWs etc.
