The xenon and the razzi are way better looking.

Wow, it's good to know that you feel so... strongly about other mfg's/car cultures taking enough interest to put forth something new for a series of cars that have seen so little intrest as whole.

I might consider something like those side skirts, but no way would I ever think about those front and rear pieces. They are too loud.

Sure it's nice to have companies take note of our cars and design a product for us...........but I'm not going for the fast and furious look that has become the retarded craze.

That's almost as bad as the "Fast and Furious" "Performance wax".

I tend to agree with you there, but the market is thin and there are something like 2 kits that are still in production for each of the MN12 T-birds (I dunno, there might be more). Other more obscure kits might still be around (et al Gagfish's style) but are difficult to find. As with anything that invovles style, there will be both good and bad taste. If the market for 'Tuning', 'Modding', and 'Hot Rodding' MN12's grow, then more conservative (as well as rediculous) styles will become available.

What kits are available? Past or Present? Got Pics?
(and ones that don't look like someone glued a second bumper underneath the first)

my $.02 is that the MN12 T-birds have always been a little too pointy and the front could use some 'blunting', like a Lincoln LS for example. The 89-93 SC front bumpers are about a cool looking as they get and all of my T-birds had one.

Gagfish's kit is still available on JC Whitney (last time I checked anyway), and is, IMO, the best-looking kit for 94-95 T-birds, even if it does require a good deal of bodywork to make it look good.

Photochopped. BMW halos are 4-5" diameter depending on what housings you have, and the shrouds you see on the outside of the driver headlight for the projectors... try about 7" across from oems

What are all your thoughts?

Chicken wire and big gaping holes--YES! Sign me up baby! I wonder if they'll throw in free shipping if I buy two sets?!?!?!


Oh wait, the cheap looking wheels don't come with it, I'm out.
