well, maybe at heart i am :)

hey fordmods.
2 days have past since i sold my 96 EF falcon.
i got exactly what i wanted for it, despite the comments from my friends
" your dreaming ! "

i have since inherited a BA Futura ,
i present to you, my new pride and joy.

As you can see, she is already sporting a set of XR6 wheels, on toyo proxie 235/45/17's

im considering a set of low springs ( 3 cm drop ).
and then the usual bolts ons associated with NA tuning.

thoughts , comments , ideas ?
thanks, EFNQIK.

depends on what car you had before? If it was a tastefully modified EF, i'd take it over a stock white BA any day

Needs lowering and the cornering lamps. Looks pretty nice though.

Being 17 years old, I'd simply dump it, headers cat and zorst and a flash tune.

At 17, this is all you'll ever need.

Then start saving for a TURBO! :)

I like it mate, can we see a few pics inside?

Im not sure you can drop it 30mm i could be wrong but i thoght it went on inches, So you could drop it an inch(25mm)but not 30mm

An XR front would look good to.

Cheers

Josh

It was a completely stock EF, apart from the sound system.

Im suprised at how low it actually sits for stock suspension, but yes i plan to lower it and i agree cornering lamps would set it off.

which sounds expensive.

yeah she looks just as tidy on the inside as the outside, how hard is it to change the factory stereo?

Thanks man, im on the verge of obessive when it comes to the condition of my car.

I think you can buy an aftermarkert dash mould so you can install a standerd head deck

BA and BF cars with the colour screen tend to also have premium sound and climate control.
Not sure if the colour screen functionality would run a car without those two features. Anybody know?
Also, your dash is set up for the smaller LCD screen. You would have to remove the grey lip above the screen to read all of the colour display.
