Where to get the following......

All

As I want to look after my new XR6, looking to "protect" it wit the following means.
1. Lower grill insert. Seen many of them around now. Want one (i Think) that is close to the upper grill in spacing etc. Can ne1 recommend any in particular. Seen them from $80 - $230 odd? I am confused what type to get.

2. Fog light protectors. Can these just be obtained from Ford dealers?

3. Headlight protectors. Seen thrm for about $48, but not for an XR6, seem to be just for the XT. Would these fit the XR allright or look out of place?

4. Bonnet protector. From dealers I think they are about $120!!! Has anyone found them in autobahns, autopro, k-marts etc?

5. Car Bra????? Around $350 up. Are they worth it? If I purchase this then probably would not purchase any of the above???

What are peoples thoughts? Are any of these a waste of money? Need to look after the new addition.........

Cheers
NB

I would do the car bra, but I don't think they are $350, unless they have had a great increase in price

Re: Where to get the following......

1. Most dealers sell an after market one.

2. Fog light protectors must be obtained from Ford Parts. You have to ask for Territory Foglight ones (same light, just not actually listed for XR yet).

3. You have to buy the XR ones, the XT/FUTURA/FAIRMONT/GHIA ones wont fit your car as your lights go down in the bumper.

4. Bonnet protector may be able to be sourced after market as the BA's all have the same bonnets (except for boss 260/290).

5. Car bra - they are ugly and are a pain in the arse, you'll soon get over having to put it on and pull it off!

You hear heap's of story's good and bad about carbra's, but I personally wouldn't use them, just get bonnet and headlamp protector's.

Do bonnet protector actually do much? Just trying to think of how many stones/chips it will stop, and it is only a little piece of plastic.

Re: Where to get the following......

I have a car bra, so I recommend one over the other bits.

Got it from www.carbra.com.au, $352.00 delivered to Sydney and I only fit it for long trips.. not cruising around town.

When I come home I wash it while it's on the car then once it's removed I get the vacuum out and make sure there's no grit in the backing material..

Cheers

Steve

Navy Blue,

Have a look at my website in my signature below. In the mods section there should be all the information you need including part numbers.

An original car bra is $352 delivered to Sydney as Steevo mentioned
