Dont just make it look like an F6, its like a lexcen owner putting a senator kit on. Go for some different mags, something unique, sure the front bar is nice but change it up a bit.

what budget have you got?
exhaust, 2.5" will give a bit of a growl and will set you back ~$300 fitted. (get 1 muffler 1 resonator).

can get a set of extractors if you want a bit of a performance gain from your exhaust, looking at around $600-700 fitted.

just goes on and on, have a search and you'll see plenty of new car owners asking the exact same question

it does, you just need to be savvy on what to search for.

essentionally u need to have a clear budget (then throw it out the window lol)

as far as exhausts go, 2.5" from the catback is what is universally accepted for the i6 engine.

getting extractors is good too and pacemaker or genie are the 2 prominent brands.

replacing the stock air filter with a K&N panel filter is probably the most commonly thing done (then branch off into POD areas if you wish)

suspension department, i think for a BA superlows and SSL's are what is commonly done.

enginewise, u could put a mild cam in there if you wish, also a set of iridium sparkplugs (@$19ea) do a good job, but are pricey.

Exhaust, extractors, typhoon airbox, 3.9 LSD and a shiftkit.
Thats enough for fun in a auto BA XT

Looks wise, ultralows alround, get the rears reset another inch, lose the spoiler,and some 17" or 18" XR rims cheap and you're finished.

Don't bother spending too much money on it, because in a year you're going to want to sell it and buy an XR6T.
