I'm not exactly a car person but I do like them very much I just don't have the knowledge. Thats where I'm hoping you guys can help me.

It's completely stock right now I'm looking at getting a typhoon body kit :

XR Headlights (how? where?)

something like these:

typhoon wheels 18-20", have to see how much my wallet can handle:

hm let me know how ridiculous that sounds and what I should do differently.
and once the outside is looking nice what can I do to get a bit more grunt?

Have you considered selling it and buying an XR6? Already on 17" Rims, LSD, Sports Suspension, Adaptive shifting... Sports interior etc...

Although I know how addictive it is to start off with something at the bottom and build it up...

sure you wanto do show before go?
personally i would do go before show. and with all the bodykits n crap on a base modle car. why not just buy a xr or typhoon?

you would look like a fool in my opinion if you ran outta money with just a big bodykit and a stock driveline.
just like a red xt falcon ive seen in kelmscott. has a full GT kit on it. shaker and all untill i saw it driving oneday. sixpot with sport exhaust. i laughed. then i heard from a friend its just a XT with a GT kit. preety sure it still had XT interior in it too.

Compared to some cars out there dude, it's not ridiculous at all.

Benny, people just do it as projects, and many look okay... until... (if it looks like another car - GT,Xr8)... someone then sprays it 4 colours, puts giant 50 inch rims on it (exaggeration), huge cannon with no mufflers, tints it pitch black so nobody can see that it's just a base XT....

I've put Xr6 side skirts, rear skirt, twin tips (only), fairlane fog lamps (not connected yet) chrome grille, colour coded side door bars, chrome strips around the bumpers, lowered it (due to suspension and shock sagging, not intentionally) but a rare blue/marble Fairlane steeringwheel into it, changed the centre console black, glove compartment, and some other areas... and left the centres grey (actually looks really cool). my car is also that GOLD colour you find in the BA series

It's still completely stock besides an after market Xr6 ratio and K&N panel filter. I really want extractors, underpulleys... but I don't see that happening :P

The BA XT base model already comes with Adaptive shifting, performance mode. Same engine, a diff ratio that does absolutely nothing to performance gains (within the human eyes capability of seeing)


I'm not attacking anyone, nobody worry... k :shock: ... (I hate the xr6 seats, give me a sore bum hahahaha :roll: )
