theres a place on embleton ave, in embleton! You can help yourself to pretty muchh everything but I don't know what its called. The last time i went there(6months) they had no idea what a bumper was!!! This made negotiation very very easy!!

I got a side mirror for the XF for $5....complete!

Don't know what ther like now but give it a go

haha awesome!
finally some wreckers that dont charge an arm and a leg =)

Having said that, theres a place in Osb Park (forgot the name sorry!) that was fairly cheap. I got a whole air cleaner housing and pipes for around $10, which I later chopped up for a custom job I made.

i'll try find the name.

Sorry, not sure of the name. But just have a look through the yellow pages for wreckers, and try each one till you get the cheapest...

If you are just after the snorkel you should get the EL XR8 snorkel, it is also the same one used on the EL GT. I bought one from Ford for around $40 brand new. If your car is a 6 cyl then the snorkel from the AU T Series will also fit and it is cheaper than the EL GT one, and also has Tickford wings on it.

Go The Roaring Fords !!

I usually try Forparts in Landsdale, just off Gnangara Rd, plenty of late stuff in stock, and decent prices too, paid about $150 all up for complete EF Cruise Control a fw months back for instance, Wanneroo wreckes wanted $250, EfTrip Comps go for $100 an Forparts, $150 at Wanneroo Wreckers, I even got some 81 LTD taillights for a guy in NSW way cheaper than he could get them.

And if you go that way, go for a drive thru Landsdale suburb, I think its Ford country, heaps of XR's (including mine !)

I go to the ones in Garling Street O'Connor. There are several side by side so you can shop around without doing lots of ks.
