Hey mate, welcome, she looks like a nice ride plans sound good too Phreddy does awesome work you'll love it
Thx mate I got 5000 grand to go then I own her so be very limited mods untill then anyone know what wheels these are
Sounds good mate just payed mine off as well. No idea on the whee sim sure someone else will know
Nice senator you have there.
You're on the right track with paying it off first before starting mods especially with this uncertain economic climate.
Just enjoy driving and having a great car to own.

Thanks guys I had the vs clubsport before this and this car I such a pleasure to own and drive. For the moment the power level is more than enough for my needs always puts a smile on my face
nice car !
senator on your ps, exemption form?
Yes I got my ps 5 years ago just always to lazy to do test after traveling overseas alot aswell I never bothered so I got in before p platters restrictions. The best best part of my day is getting pulled over lol where your exemption don't have they start to write fine then I tell them sorry buddy I got my license before that law LOL
hahaha lucky bastard!
yeah that would always be a cack, love when they walk away in disappointment when they finally realise there's nothing that they can fine you for.
how does the senator run with the automatic ?
Actually really well I wanted the manual but my third child is in the oven and my partner pref auto I was just happy to be able to spare the money lol on a 8. But yeah really does go
When it wants to power button holds the gear well kicks you in seat hard sprays out on 2nd shift so really happy. Hoping to buy a vy clubby end of the year once I own this and got same savings again
Can't wait to trade in our fake Mercedes musso LOL although that has been a good fourby for kids to trash at shopping centers
sick man! if you do get the clubby front am i able to buy the senator front off you ?
i reckon it would look good on my z
Sorry buddy trading in the 4wd for a vy clubsport 6 speed not putting the front on then misses can have senator I'll have clubsport
oh i misread i thought you said vy clubby front end* ha my bad
that'd be a good combination of cars !
Cool/sexy car is cool/sexy.
Don't think I could ever bring myself to destroy a hsv I'd be all for it if it was a executive I really love ss utes with senator & grange front ends they look f**king sexy
Always loved Senators mate - its a beautiful car.
My VY Berlina Build Thread - Mainly Stereo
thinking of polishing her today bored shit less my misses on bed rest been playing with my 7 month old daughter all morning being lazy and weather is good
man these photos are old this is when i got it lol and still auto ha ha
well should really update this ey so here goes really wanted a manual and i loved the senator especially the vy series as i loved the lines and chrome
so after a year the power was hell shit so i thought nah just needs manual lol so on that rash decision i hit buy now on a conversion and over 3 nights i smashed it out
yep got carried away lol conversion went pretty smoothly but was a majour pain in arse though thought better do hd clutch while at it and rip shift and be done with it!!!!
i tryed to start with a manual computer and it wouldnt start plugged the auto comp back in car went bazerk with all these crazy warnings lol and was fun to drive but 3.08 diff sucked balls was like 900rpm 6th gear on m7 lol...... So next day went to smithfield round corner from work got diff rebuilt with harrop 3.9 diff gears new lsd ( should of gone trutrak or kaaz will soon)
Then was much much better but still sluggish i thought for mods considering i had already got stock hsv extractors with 100cell cats and dual 2 1/2 inch x force system thought go more harder oh well thought get her tuned so got a dus speed otr from steve (highly recomend ey) he fitted $600 later i had this
Looks even better in the flesh....Goes like a scolded cat too.
Front wheel drive cars are the work of the Devil.
