Have you ever considered just buying a BA ? Problems all solved. Big step up from E series in every way. :idea:

Then the questions would change to "do EF parts fit my BA" :mrgreen:

Hi Mad,
I understand what your saying. I love my BA and when i use the EB i love that as well. They both drive and handle very differently. I adjust after a few mins.
At times i prefer to drive my mrs i30 SR over both Falcons and have a rest Lol.

Hey at least its manual :lol:

And car1001 i have not seen an EF/EL with BA headlights. Benj coverted EB headlights to BA lenses which you will find in his build thread. Mind you i think i recall this being a big task and involved alot of cutting and changing. Then after that you need to ensure they are projecting the light properly and still mount properly. I would not attempt it but if your up for a task let us know how you go.
