twr7c i dont see how having the buldge on the turbo territory would be there for a top mount intercooler. All (well what i have seen_) top mount intercooled cars have a scoop ie WRX, so the buldge is closed off, so it would have to have some sort of vent to scoop in cool fresh air instead of the crappy air under the bonnet which wouldnt do much for cooling.

Yeah ... they make a lower bar kit ... it's not a full front bar replacement by the looks of things .... I am keeping the stock AU headlights (not going to XR lights) ... and getting the TE50 bottom section with the fog lights.

EDIT: .... taking a closer look ... it's a full bar replacement.

It's the TS50 sedan front bar as well

I know ... hence why I want it ... just added it all up.
front bar ... plus side skirts and ute body skirts ... no rear skirt.
comes to a grand total of $891 supplied.

I am coming around to liking the stock AU headlights (HID kit installed too) .. they put out decent light.

You will have to replace the bonnet to an AU fairmont/AUII/III forte/futura/t series bonnet to fit that bar too.
I think AWC are doing the high series bonnet for AU with a bulge too sometime this year.

AU still = ugly car, nice rims and ride height tho....

Here you go kit (hopefully its what you meant) It was limited by the format that it was saved under, so the options in photoshop were limited, i couldnt add the effects i wanted :cry: but still here you go

Thanks dude. I think that looks better already. And I think the front end still has lots of potential.

Keep the grill, stick on a blue oval and destroy those twinkle twinkle little star rims with a set of polished FR19 Simmon's. I agree about the front bar, it is lacking in toughness.
