    and here we are, sorry it took so long and sorry for bad quality. You'd think a $500 camera would focus

    Nice, is that white or lightish yellow backlight?

    Photos never do it justice. Makes such a difference in the night driving experience IMO. Still best thing I believe I did to mine

    AV-DC, normally $360 but he did it for $300 since he took way longer than he said he would

    Hey guys so Im looking at getting a VE SS, I want a purple one however and won't have any other colour so it makes it difficult to find one. I am aware that pre 2010 models are known for issues but I reckon it will be fine. Manual or auto doesn't really bother me, I may have to look inter-state for one however.

    Ill probably keep this VY or sell it to my parents for my younger brothers first car, Its too good to let go and ive put a lot into it

    They do come out, yea fair enough. I hope me mentioning doesn't have you start noticing them now lol.

    Like I said, looks good. Always worried it will just wash out the interior with so much black. But the gloss doesn't seem to do that.

    A VE would probably be pretty nice, Honestly if I had my full licence I'd more then likely be looking into something like that as well, it's good to see the VY still looks mint too :)
