subsligh35: Thanks buddy. I got the car just a little over a year ago. It was originaly a beige XF stock as all hell I used as a daily driver while I searched for an EF. When I bought my EF, I put the car in the garage, striped it, sprayed it myself (black with blue pearl which I will be doing again this summer), changed the interior (seats) to Fairlane interior (but I want LTD so I'm still looking). I lowered it using all Pedders shocks and springs (but I've just recently bought Koni adjustables). I originaly had big fat 12 slotters on it, then put the FTR replica wheels from the EF. I don't have much time now to work on it as it's the only car I have after I got hit in the EF and it was written off. I've changed the door handles to chrome ones and lots of other little things like barrel locks, etc. I'm not into car audio so I just run a cheapo CD player through the stock 2 front speakers. I've just replaced the air filter cover with a chrome one so I put the scoop on there to get some fresh air into it. I have electric mirrors from a Fairmont, and I've got a power window on the driverside(I've been to lazy to do the other side).
I don't want an XG or EA grille. I will be sending the original one over to NSW when I paint the car again to be chromed. I like chromed grilles and I happen to like the original one.

The original plans for the XF while I was driving the EF where to drop in a 351 with a 4 speed top loader, but finding a trustworthy engineer who won't stuff around with you is easier said than done. Then I had the accident and I had to use the car. So time will tell if I do go ahead with the V8 conversion or I just buy an XD/E and transplant the facia from the XF. I'll wait to see what happens, that's why I haven't done much to the I6 at this stage, I haven't even bothered with extractors or exhaust.

Very nice mate, but like you said, not sure of the wheels. I've yet to see wheels on an XF that I've fallen in love with.

I might post some photos of mine up soon, will go and wash it now!

BTW XF Falcon, what digi camera have you got?

I think those wheels look mad!! some very nice cars above.

I dont have photos of my XF yet but its yellow it has the XE style s pac stickers down the side. Tinted windows old school mags, not sure what type. 215 tyres on them. Soon to be lowered.
1 small rust spot the size of a 5 cent coin.
All for $700.
I bought it cos my ED was written off : (

Now for the questions.
I want to put in a fairmont interior to replace my yucky brown one. If i get a wrecked fairmont will everything be a straight swap over?? Including all electrical things like dash and interior lights??

Does an EA grill fit straight onto the XF with no hassles??
Does anyone have 2 subs in their boot of their XF, XE etc? How did you deal with those metal things that go across the width of the car to hold the boot up?

Sorry for the long post

Dan

Its a mates one, Kodak EasyShare CX4230. Those pics have been reduced to 50% in size and a sharpen filter applied, so they look pretty sharp.

ta man.

Im not sure about the rest of your questions, but as for the grille question.. the EA and XG Ute grille look the same dont they?.
You will find that an XG Ute grille has identical mounting points to the standard XF one, so its just a matter of popping the hood, taking off the 6 or so bolts and slapping on the new one.
