Re: Spotties/Driving Lamps to fit EF XR6?
Many thanks outback_ute... To be honest, for a country that made major developments to the car industry over the years, Britain is a hard and expensive place to own or mod your car in any form. The boy racer stuff is out there off the shelf, but the services associated with Imported cars is slim. There just not into making mods as much as in the Southern Hemisphere. Even the local ford garage cannot service the veichle correctly as they have no part numbers and tech info for it, ( strange that for a company with the same name ) ...so I have been relying on service manuals and the internet to try and get info.
Dont mean to write a novel... but as far as the reaction goes with the ol XR6, its very funny!
When guys see the XR6 badge they ask if its a 6 cylinder, and then try to guess the size of it. Most ask is it a 2.6 or 2.8 ....So when I drop in its a 4 litre most of them freak and its not till I pop the hood that really believe me!.... Gas is very expensive over here and heavily taxed, still I am surprised at how economical she is really for all that grunt. I had a XF panel van (carb) in NZ and that sucked more juice.
Tell you what though, it makes me jelous to hear all the boys talking about going down to the local wreakers yard and picking up another diff or whatever. That mate would be heaven!!!
outback_ute... if you or any other lads know of a good mail order parts company, could you please let me know of it?
Anyhow, cheers for the relpy, I will try and source some lamps that fill the gap as best as they can...
