Ride: AU - Turbo

Location: Canada
Oustide Australia

I was hoping you guys could help me make a decision. I have an au falcon (turbo) and I am looking to fit a BA bulge (don’t worry this isn’t another ba bulge thread). Now the problem is so many people have them now its kind of pointless so I have been thinking about getting a evo 6/7 style setup on the bonnet. The problem is... will it look any good? I am sure it will blend in with the turbo but other then that i am not sure as it is off a Mitsubishi of all cars :oops: Maybe if I stick on some 380 badges on the boot

The next thing I was going to get an opinion on was..... vz ss flutes. I have had a set lying around for ages and was thinking of fitting them up. It would be relatively cheap but I think it would be a bit embarrassing to have them on the car. I can't decided do I do it for the f**k of it or will doing it wreck the car and cause too many conflicts

(the car is already ts50 kitted, lowered, rims etc)

Personally, I don't like the sound of your proposed mods. BA bulges can look good on the AU's though.

vz ss flutes


hmmm i wonder what they would look like?? they should look like a proper (aka XC style) ford cause let's face it the monaro bonnet is just a slicker design of the older XB/XC bonnet flutes

au's look pretty good, you've just got to have enough taste to make them look hot. Blinks car looks mint, i've seen it a couple of times.
I spent more money doing up my BA than i did on my AU, and the AU looked s**t tougher.
