Hey everyone,

I'm new here as you can tell. I'm a Ford man, it runs in the family!

I will be getting my first car this weekend/Monday (coincidentally my 17th Birthday) which will be a White BA XT Wagon.

Any ideas as to what I can do it to personalise it a bit? I'm thinking lowering it and custom exhaust etc. I don't want it too low or for it to be really loud, I'm thinking just making it sound a little more throbby.

So really I am asking for brand ideas, and also price as well (roughly, not 100% accurate, just so I get an idea of how much I need to save!)

I am thinking of putting a K&N Air Filter in, they aren't too pricey. Good idea?

Thanks,

Tom

Ahhh ok, I'll start with the K&N then!

This will be hard to do, I am a drummer (hence the wagon) and my money will be split between drums and car!

I'll post pics when I get it.

Tom

I knew I posted it here for some reason! What else can I do to the exterior? Are there any Wagon bodykits?

rims..
lower..
de badge..
tinted windows..
typhoon intake..
pacemaker extractors..
2.5 inch cat back exhaust..

after all the above she will look great.. sound great and have a bit more go from the engine.. perhaps even a lil fuel benefit from the engine mods...

Fuel benefit is so true, however it is hinded by the human need to drive harder and faster! Even more so with a good tune.

Back on topic, I would go with Window tint, lowering - mainly just to stiffen up the ride a little otherwise you'll be bouncing all over the place, then get a good set of rims. That'll make it look tough as. As for exhaust, a 2.5 catback should do the trick.

There is a bloke floating around on here with a stock looking wagon that is running a typhoon engine (running gear too??) and it hammers! Cant remember his name tho...
