Ford Falcon 2010 FG XT
29,000km

My first car, saved up first two years of my apprenticeship for her.


Fresh off the shelf before any mods

Image
Image


subwoofer and amp, kept stock front and rear speakers I think they were good enough for now.


Alberts Rockingham supply and install
12 inch Rockford P2
Image


Focal Amp

Image

Focal Amp broke within two weeks of install Alberts replaced with a new amp same model, I broke it again in a month "lol"

Alberts swapped it it for this Pioneer

Image


Being a stupid P plater my sub has been getting thrown all around my boot whilst I have been driving, not thinking I didn't have a mesh on the sub and it soon got a hole in it from being face down rubbing against tools in my boot

So decided to swap it up for Rockford P3 and I bought a mesh ;)
12 inch rockford p3 all strapped in now haha

Image


Smoked LED taillights
Soz for bad picture, only one I could find

Image


Not a mod but an update, car just rolled over 50,000

Image


After loosing a hubcap I eventually decided to get some new wheels

Image

After a while searching initially wanted to go with the Advanti Tourer, but they were many months until they could come in stock so I deiced I'd go with there brother, Advanti Sonic

Image


Quick oil change and wheels about to go on

Image


20 inch Advanti Sonic in all its beauty

Image


Just got home

Image
Image


Chrome door handles

Image


Fog lights, not yet wired up just cosmetic for now

Image

Pacemaker Extractors, Manta 2.5 inch sports and high flow cat
Out with the old in with the new :)

Image

I don't know if I like the exhaust tip yet, It may grow on me.. the guy that put it on said that fits the best because if you want to put a straight tip on have to cut the black plastic xt's have different garnish to the xr6's

Also replaced horn today - old one has been broken for months

Image

Springs in

Image

Changed front grill

Car has been making a weird squeaking sound when I accelerate between 20-60 km/h

I took it to UltraTune, asked if they could have a look at it, the guy asks me to start my car.
Battery died. what are the chances.

anyways they thought it was my timing belt + tensioner so I got that replaced + a new battery, $500 later...


Car still makes same sound... FML.. they had another look at it a few days later. Now they recon its a part on my exhaust. Forgot the name its the part after the catalytic converter. They called up there guy that does there exhaust work. He said that it happens all the time and he just cuts it out and welds a new pipe on.

I didn't like that idea and I wanted to get an exhaust system anyways so this would be prime opportunity.

So tomorrow I'm getting exhaust put on - Pacemaker Extractors, Manta 2.5 inch sports and high flow cat - $1650

I also think it time to switch up door speakers, they sound blown and do not outperform

It's a serpentine belt doing the chain would mean that the timing cover would have to come off along everything else on the front of the motor.

You should share us a video of your exhaust so we can hear it

Love what you've done with the car mate!

How much did the extractors and horn set you back? And is that the horn located under the drivers side front light? Is it just a standard horn?
