Hey guys new to this forum and buying a ford!

I originally had a vr berlina but had that many problems with holdens and all my other friends and familys holdens that i moved over to the light and bought a ef.

Its such a nice car to drive and has a fair bit of grunt too! here is the details

Interiour:
Fairmont Seats
XR6 Door trims and dash etc
Momo with wood grain steering wheel
Pretty Average sound system

Exteriour/Engine:
5 spd Manual
3.9 LSD
Professionally lowered by pedders
Tinted windows
Genie extractors
150,000 K's

Future Mods/Ideas :
Re tint as its a little rough
Color code the front and rear bumpers, not a fan of the black stripes!
Xr6 front, back and side lip's
BA xr8 or AU xr8 Wheels and good rubber
Cat back exhaust with lukey muffler to go with the genie extractors
Fix back right hand door, doesnt lock!
All scratchs and little surface rust bits removed and re painted
Cut and polish, Good hard wax
Steam Clean
Correct the speedo
change diff to 3.45 or lower, dont like the 3.9
DD Audio 2512 Sub
Polk MM audio splits

Any ideas, thoughts, comments, or knowledge of where to get some things i would like or u are selling, please let me know

Cheers :) Rowan

i used hub adaptors with au xr8 wheels personally from experiences id stay away from them, cos they are annoying when u want to take a wheel off and they can twist if enough load is put on the wheels. i just brought new bf twists in pre au offset

I have a really good expensive set of spacers for my BA XR6's and I've never had a problem with cops or anything. im positive they're not illegal as I've had my car check for street legality and all that and not had a problem with them. I've even been complimented on the wheels by a police officer. If you get a good set you have nothing to worry about

Quick up date, bought some lovely mb quart splits from a mate, sound very nice, a Digital designs 2512 sub, and a alpine 9855!

just missed out on ebay for the mono block i desperately wanted! was a rockford fosgate 1000wrms, but will hopefully find one soon.

I have also orderd a d34 yellow top battery so it can handle power! haha

day off tomorrow so lots of pics of the install as i will be doing it properly dyna mate, lots of silicone, big gauge wiring and etc!

Hey ef_falcon_95 you forgot to mention that doing D Slams whilst you had them fitted was a stupid idea. ;) I run them on my Lane for 8 months and never had any issues with them loosening off or cracking. And the Police never picked up on it, just complimented the wheels on the car.
