regarding the grill, what happens if i just take it off, do i replace it with something else?is there another kind of grill that will fit?cause i don't like the look of it either and still have to save abit for the kit.

mine are 18's and i think its gunmetal or something like that and i think its either 7.5 or 7 but they do come in alot of different sizes.
something i totally forgot to mention is that the handling is about 10 times better than when i had the taxi wheels with goodyear ga's , now i got falkin tyres and it grips so much.

easiest swap would be the AU I commerical/classic "honeycomb" style grille

GEESUS! You are going to have to put warnings up if you are going to put Pics up like that. But honestly those Rims look way better on your Commonwhore than on that AU Falcon :wink:

not 100% sure, but i think if you put the fairmont bonnet on, you have to change the grill as well, they are different to the falcons

All AU bonnets are interchangeble. You'll just need the fairmont/AUII/AUIII grille to fit the bonnet.
