So i bought my 05 ba mkII xr6 off my Dad earlier this year, when i finally got my P's :D he was going to trade it in to get his new fg but thought we'd save money if he sold it to me for a little less than what he would have got for the trade. So i saved up and i bought it off him!!! here it is....

Image

Ford did a full re-spray of the car in early april this year, after they released a quiet statement that the shockwave paint had been recalled after problems of the paint sticking to the metal, leaving it easy to flake and chip. Came up a treat :)

Image

so then i added some interior LED's and footwell neons, like a typical P-plater....
Image
Image

Saw a fair few people on here with K&N air filters on their lists, so i had a looked and was convinced, so i bought one of those :)
Image

I eventually saved up a bit more money and got some rims, 20"-8.5 all round Versus deep dish and was stoked with the outcome!!
Image
Image
Image

so soon i will be buying a set of super low king springs to bring the whole car down a little, and there will be shortened shocks put in the back at the same time! After that, ill get a 2.5" Catback exhaust with the twin tip at the end.... and when i finally get to my open licence a turbo will be seriously considered xD

cheers

umm i think u do, because im pretty sure ur not allowed to touch the actual engine itself which gives it increase in power.... so extractors etc would be classed as modifications to the engine :( but things such as air intake and exhaust can be done as they arent direct to the engine... even tho it will most likely push me over the amount of power im allowed to have on my P's anyways :/ hahah others have done it tho, so i guess it must be alright :lol:
