    Yeah I agree with having a daily , as my work ute I dont really care if it gets a bit bumped around .

    Also you need to get on to getting a gerni and getting snow foam :p

    Girls love utes. I get plenty of girls looking at me when I'm driving by.

    Anyway, I found 2 that fit the criteria & both VY's. Both are autoy, fabricy (the same original fabric I had in mine) & Stormy.
    The red one has a hardlid, 166,000kms, lowered, very clean interior & a decent head unit 2003 Holden Ute Storm S VY Auto
    The delft blue one has a hardlid, 210,000kms, not lowered, standard alloys, same fabric seats as my old ones & factory head unit 2003 Holden Ute Storm S VY Auto
    $490 in difference but i reckon you could knock them down.
    2003 Holden Ute Storm S VY Auto
    *Private Price Guide $5,600 - $7,500
    *Trade In Price Guide $3,400 - $5,300
    *Average Km 260,000 - 390,000

    Just a quick clip showing exhaust note, you're going to have to i the alrighty my word for it but it sounds better in real life.
    It pops so much now with the hot dogs. Every down shift or even just letting off the throttle bring on a bunch of crackle and pops.
    Also a really nice rumble at idle

    Recap of exhaust system

    -4 into 1 pacemaker headers
    -Vz 6L cats (I don't know why... but yes I will be going highflow)
    -Twin 2.5 inch stainless steel pipe
    -CSV high flow centre mufflers
    -Twin rear hot dogs




    in other news, im due for my 90,000km service very soon oil is still clean though but ill do it anyway cause racecar
    Also heres another fan photo :p

    very nice.
    and if its anything like the videos I've taken, it doesn't pick up the really low bass of the exhaust properly so it will be more rumbly and deeper hearing it with your own ears.
    very hard to figure out the sound off an online vid, but hopefully will get to hear it soon :thumbsup:

    Thanks guys, I'm happy with it.... when's the next JC meet?

    Yea that's exactly what's happening it doesn't pick up the nice low down tumble. You will hear it soon enough when you come over :D
