Yeah, that's my basically my question, what markings are on the genuine ford ones to tell they are genuine? anything? ford logo and part number?

100 times dearer than any other brand.......

Hmm just to clear it up... Thier is a Part number.. but no tickford or ford logo. My car is 100% genuine and if thier was a Ford logo embossed on it then it would be on the other side of the bottom plastic bit.

Unless mines not genuine...... Hmm that raises some interesting questions :?

after market vents are made from normal fibreglass - not plastic like ford(compressed fibreglass)
when you buy them new the vents come in a carboard box , unlike the plastic bag that the aftermarket 1's come in :P

g'day cobber

the ford ones have part numbers on the inside of upper and lower parts I think there is a tickford wing too. they are fiberglass (I had to file the curve out of mine to fit the bonnet) the ford ones have 4 metal stud's to bolt uppers to lowers (not sure about the aftermarket ones think they are flat and you apoxy them down.) I got mine second hand but had to by a new passanger side lower and it alone cost $160 approx.

If I had to do it again I would cut a dammaged xr bonnet up and take the mounting section out and weld it into your bonnet as trying to get the vent's to curv properly was a nightmare. or just go aftermarket good luck
