- Any suggestions as to what I should do next.. it's got the rims now..boot has been de-badged. I'm thinking lowering it because of the rims (sitting way too high) but am holding off until i decide whether or not to change the front/rear bars.

doesn't matter about the rear bar, the xr is exactly the same as the XT/futura rear bar, height wise. Munch says...

DUMP IT ON ITS NUTS!!!

-But not too low if you carry passengers in the rear...

put xr6 springs on to keep it comfy but flatter, then grab a force 6 style rear spoiler from ebay for 150 bucks and slap that on. then think about a bf gt front bar. sweeeeeet.

Nice car!

I'd lower it.
Then leave it.

Put your money toward performance mods.

Ultimate sleeper.

Nice BA, what rims are those?
As everyone else has said lower it for sure, personally I'd look at putting a bodykit on it. Fatsix and topghia both have quad tips poking out the normal rear bar, looks pretty awesome.
