Get him to look at that XR50 front bar, the better looking AUII XR front with the TS50 bottom.

Even though Canberra Car Styling doesn't show one on their website, I would still contact Bob to check if he has something in development, saves changing the whole of the XR front and it makes it more individual.

I agree the AU look can grow on you. The Red pic with that grill is a shocker though. I prefer the grill below

Every time I see the AU1 Forte grill, I think moo, and wait for the horrible noise you hear when you drive over them.
They could have got the look spot on by giving it a rusty look, grey fence posts by each side and some barb wire.
