heres Twinlight's website http://www.twinlight.com.au/ much cheaper alternative than getting the original ones - if you can find them that is...its about $800 each side from ford, just for the light assemblies, then you gotta try and source the grille as well....for $540 for the twinlight ones you cant go wrong...if i end up doing it i'll be gettin the Twinlights...

Ride: ED 5 Speed GLiXR

Location: Now in Brisbane
QLD, Australia

Ha already got the ED XR front end sitting in the shed ready to go on. But am waiting on some form of suitable wheels to go with it instead of the stock GLi hubcaps.
Anyway to the point, i have a plan to get the GT/XR8 front bar in the next few years, so if you have plans for the car then yeah id definately get it. Depends if you want the stock looking XR or soething with a full bodykit.
