Nice ride mate, i always look back and say i should of got a stato..best interior ever
Like the idea of not getting an exhaust.
Looks pretty much set mate
nice stato mate i have the same issue on mine with the cliping of the guards
Might put up a new thread of my VS Berlina with the mods and everything.
I haven't put up any pics for a while or updated this thread, so I thought its about time.
Sorry, the car wasn't very clean when I took this photo.
This is how she sits on the stock 16's
And is is how she sits on the VY Signature 19's
Update: Well theres not too much going on at the moment, haven't been able to put the chrome strips, door moulds or anything like that on yet because I haven't had the money to do it, plus I bought the L67 motor for my VS and that set me back a fair bit.
As you may know, I like to keep my cars looking immaculate and always at there best. Last week was the last week of work for me and now i'm on holidays. Anyway, I decided I would take my Statesman to work on Friday, and when I got to work, I parked it away from all the other cars that were around work. By lunch time, I noticed there was a red van parked in front of me and I didn't think anything of it. When I went to leave work, the van was gone and I got in my car, parked it at the petrol pumps at work to fill it up, went inside to say cya to everyone, came out and noticed that the careless ******** backed into the front of my car, push the number plate in and damaged the front bumper bar. Ok now 1. I just bought brand new slimline number plates for it $80 (I think), 2. I just put brand new fog lights (genuine from holden $150ea), the bumper was broken where the white paint meets the grey paint right next to the L/H/F fog light. I sucks because I don't know whos van it was that parked in front of me. It just really annoys me when no-one cares about something that they don't own so they don't care if they damage it . Anyway, I guess thats more money I have to pay when I take the car to the pannel beater whenever I can afford it.
Anyway, let me know what you think of the photo, I took it about 2 weeks ago and haven't had a chance to upload it until now

Love those sigs mate, really thinking of getting some
haha i was up at B-rat this week for uni night down at the bluestone
i went out in Ballarat once, my mate got in a fight with the scraggliest chick ive ever seen, because apperently we pushed in front of her and displayed male dominance or some shit.
seriously took like 2 of us to hold her back, never going out in the Rat again.
Hahaha so good
I remember the local talent being above average though and slaying a few of the locals
yeah haha she was definately on some sort of drugs
But while that was happening I thought he was going to try and steal my car. But as he walked over I discreetly locked the doors and I didn't opened the window very much so he couldn't try anything.
Never went back to that ATM again. Now I go to one thats closer to home haha.
fark that haha, yeah that was the first and only time ive been to ballarat haha, went with a few mates that were from there. not sure if ill go back haha
yeah melbourne is pretty mad, used to go there every weekend with the boys and waste all our money.
clubs are pretty hectic though, getting started on every 5 mins by groups of males of mediterranean descent.
UPDATE: I bought the genuine stainless steel door scuff plates from Holden and put them on, they look heaps better in real life then in the pics.
Front scuff plate.
Rear scuff plate.
I've been thinking about getting some of those. Whats the $?
Current mods: 22" chromies on the front, 15" stockies with whitewalls and spinnaz on the back. Stock front springs, SSSSSSSSSL rears, standard shocks all round. Painted fuse box cover. Gauges all over my bonnet in chrome caps. Massive exhaust sticker across rear window. Tinted brake lights. Front seat so far back I need to look out the rear window. Single 2" exhaust with twin 6" cannons. Chev badges. MACE 1.9:1 rockers. Pod filter, high-flow MAF, cleaned intake, stock pushrods. MACE Ghostcam. Electronic supercharger.
