I got mine from Ebay, from a guy who bought his car and replaced them right away. They popped up so I nabbed them.

God i love the mean look of the BF's, i think they are a really fine car, i love that sort of non metallic blue colour. The BF's are by far one of the nicest looking falcon models

Yeah, I'm very glad I got the BF bar on mine now. I did like it with the BA bar for years, but now the BF is in....

yeah i can understand why, i like the look of the ba bar because its smooth, but that bf bar looks tough and it doesnt cost too much to change it over does it?

Price all depends on where you get your bar from. They are cheaper than genuine FPV stuff, but more than any fibreglass bar, but they also do pop up in brand new condition on Ebay from time to time, and FTG were doing some a while back.

Like the rims, the bar happened to come along, so I got it put on and I like both for that fact they're genuine and still XR parts.

Don't forget, a BF bar does not toughness make. The right rims and ride height to suit are essential. Add a good lower grill to complete the look, and you're done.

There are plenty of standard BF's out there that don't stand out due to being stock. My car looked great lowered on the 18's, I really liked it, but with the 19's and new bar, it's another dimension of goodness.

Save your cash, that's the thing to do, you never know when something you want will pop up and you want to have the money available so you can take advantage...

There you go, that's the way to do it! Stuff like that doesn't happen much in Canberra, I don't think many FG's have been sold with the 19's.
