just out of curiousity, fairmont or fairmont ghia?

really the primitive setup of the EEC-IV's in the EFI XF's limits how much you can do to them without changing the computer, a mild cam, extractors and 2.25" exhaust (2.5 is bending the rules a little too far if the police like your car), 5 speed manual and lower diff ratio are about as far as you can go before getting into more expensive stuff like V8 swaps, turbo's, aftermarket ECU's, etc

visually...... lower it, wheels and tyres, dark tint, XG Grille, bodykit, etc

what colour is it atm?

mmmm...... personally i'm not too keen on airbrushing/artwork on cars...... not too sure it'd look good on an XF either.....clean, debadged, etc looks good IMO
