Hi cheekybabe,

1) XH snorkel is just the air intake 'snorkel' which sucks air into the airbox, through the filter, into your throtle body, then into the engine, you get the idea, they are slightly bigger then the standard snorkel on EA-ED and look better, so less restrictive won't really do much performance wise.
2) Nope, and no idea sorry. :(
3) There is a place , that make carpet to fit any car, about $150 max any colour, i don't know the name of the company sorry, but could find out, pretty easy job, just remove seats, and scuff plates, centre console etc.
4)Try a reputible tint company, do you have Tint-a-Car, or Tint Professor up there ? Roughly $300.

Hope this helps, try adding a .AU to your forum browser for a more informative and active Aussie Ford site. :)

Cheers,

Damian

Re: silly questions! but....

Will add that the XH is a UTE with a different snorkel than the sedan, so simply, it's a UTE snorkel. :)

Any Auto trimmer can recover your seats. Depending on what you want them covered in it can be done cheaply or up to a few thousand for leather. The simple option is buy some second hand seats from either an EA-EB-ED and fit them. Look out for fairmont or fairmont ghia seats as they are the luxury to be had.

With the carpet, they charge more depending on how deep you want the pile.
Try this place www.knoxautocarpets.com.au They will deliver a fitted piece, made for your car for under $150. (minimum $130 including delivery up to $175 for the best available)
Colours available are - black, dark brown, tan, beige, burgundy, charcoal grey, light grey, light blue, dark blue, dark green, USA red & turquoise..

re, tint... My advise is get it done ASAP. most places offer discount cos its winter and prices can be as low as half prive. If you wait til summer you'll pay a lot more.
