18" is too small for a ba don't forget they have 16" standard so getting 18" is equvalent to 17" on a vz commie i think 20" is the perfect size. i have 19"s but tyre prices dont seem much different.

What just happened there? :lol:

I also reckon go the sleeper look. Buy an underbonnet charger, put sme 275 wheels on the back (:P) and dump it on its guts.

Spend rest of effort on interior and audio.

OEM 18's look fantastic on B series. Aftermarket 18's tend to look small though..
19" is a good size on ba's.

have a look at crome mirrors like on the force6 and 8. otherwise colour code.
also check out the GT steering wheel, centre console and handbrake.
superlows are the best in my opinion.
15% tint.
go the typhoon kit - the spoiler.
fairmont garnish will look good to.
premo sound for sure.
no gt stripes.

I have the force bootlip on my BA. The problem with it on ozmale's car is that it won't cover the holes from the existing spoiler. The cheapest/best option would be to buy the typhoon legs for the spoiler, or to grab a DJR bobtail so you don't have to get a new bootlid/weld old holes.

Thanks guys that gives me something to go on...I may go the typhoon wing which is just a standard XR with 3 legs instead of 2 and higher as well.

I've been advsied not to get it lowered until I get the kit on it.

I may get the kit totaly colour coded in shockwave. As you know the standard is grey middle.

I have given up on saber chromes and may go the GT 18" replicas with 245 tyres

I'll keep you posted

I'd reckon the opposite... Kits on cars that are sitting at standard height look very average... whereas lowered standard body cars look nice 8-)

Yeh Muffy... except for the simple cold hard fact that sadly, few of us can afford the $60k for an F6... So we just dream we had one instead and make our standard Falcon look like one :)

60grand for the f6 or pay $15000 for a nice B-series and still have $45000 over to make it better than an f6?
