Hi there,
I am a first time user and this is my first post. I have a ford falcon 2000 model and I was looking for some ideas to help boost up the exterior of my car as I think it's too plain for my liking. I've had some ideas such as putting on a TS 50 style body kit and a hawk style grille? Upgrading the exhaust with extractors? But I was just wanting to ask you guys for some others ideas that I could use and also some ideas I could use to boots up the engine compartment? Thanks pinballben93

To save your life and make sure your vehicle is safe, upgrade the Brakes on it FIRST. :)

I'm sure you've got this programmed to a macro, so whenever you see an AU post, you put it up. Haha.

It is true though, get some bigger brakes as well.

Thanks for the replies guys! I'm sure it'll help me with my car now! And what brakes would you recommend?

Ba fronts, you just need new calipers hoses and rotors, if you are able to get 322mm rotors and calipers, all the better also, don't forget to check the lower and upper control arm bushes, the Ball joints and the Bearing hubs. If you really want to do some good, BA wagon or ute rears will be a good option as well, as long as you have a live axle if not, BA sedan rears on an AU with IRS.

I don't but I have seen too many times what a fast car with shoddy brakes can do. I feel obligated to inform younger drivers about the one part most forget. It usually rates pretty low after exhausts, turbos, Sound Systems and fancy wheels. I am sure no one would want the job of telling some young bloke's parents he ISN'T coming home again. :roll:

PS. I know you meant it as a joke REW :)
