    Toyota is Gone. Goodbye Australian Car industry 1896-2017.

    Pity that an increasing percentage of their products other than boots are being made in China and India now (towels/shirts/wallets/shorts etc.). And it is also a pity that 49.9% of RM Williams is now owned by a Singapore based equity firm.

    GM give up HOLDEN ?

    Even with higher margins, you will never cover costs building a low volume vehicle like that. Regardless of higher margins, lower volume means increased build costs due to lower economies of scale. Research and development costs alone to keep up with (and compete) in that segment are far too...

    Single 2.5" Exhaust onto L67 VY Calais?

    Ok, long story short... I have 2 VY's - An Ecotec Berlina with an exhaust that I am about to sell and an L67 Calais that I am keeping. Before I sell the Berlina, I am considering swapping its exhaust onto the L67 Calais. The L67 Calais has the standard twin cat exhaust from factory. Only...

    Info/pics of lowered vn/vp's!

    Ultralow equivalent front, superlow rear. Pic with stockies and pic with 19's. Mind you it has adjustable strut tops at the front which raise the front a little. Even with an adjustable panhard rod, I'd roll the guards anyway, especially as 19's look skinny with anything narrower than a 245...

    VY V6 stalling intermittently? Try this before you start spending $$$

    I already tried swapping the relay, and I left it swapped, and that didn't have any impact on the issue. And perhaps it has been covered 100 times before, I am just trying to make it easier to search for or find, so I threw in all the relevant search tags when I made the thread.

    VY V6 stalling intermittently? Try this before you start spending $$$

    Just posting this up, as I had an issue last night and tried searching here for a solution but didn't get much luck with my problem. So thought my experience may prove handy to others... On the way home last night, I started the VY and before I put it into Reverse, it stalled. Before this I'd...

    [QLD] VY - VZ Leather Seat, Head Lights, Suspension, Front Grille, Mud Flaps

    Hey mate, are they the Calais mud flaps or the standard berlina ones? (The Calais ones fit the rear bumber with the VY II and VZ Calais rear bumper extensions, where as the Berlina ones suit the normal rear bumper)

    VR headlights on vp

    And.... why do you need to change wiring? I still don't understand why its so hard to just plug your globes into the new headlights. Worked fine on VN to VS when I did it (below).

    What petrol is best

    You do realise that they didn't 'choose' E85 over other fuels, and they didn't choose it because its the best fuel. You realise the reasons behind the V8 Supercars change to E85?

    What petrol is best

    BP Ultimate is the most constant mixture, because it all comes from the same refinery. Other 98 PULP fuels can come from multiple refineries so the fuel can differentiate. I run a BP service station but I still go back to Mobil to get my 98 RON petrol. Purely because I know their policies and...

    VR headlights on vp

    98 Octane - In a Country Town

    To be branded as a premium unleaded fuel, they have to meet stricter criteria in regards to the fuel quality and how clean/how much pollution the fuel emits. Which is in part the reason for the higher cost, as they have to be further refined. But the gap between a standard unleaded and a premium...

    98 Octane - In a Country Town

    Regular unleaded doesn't have additives such as detergent like the 98 octane ranges do. Thats also why they tell you not to expect any difference between regular unleaded and BP Ultimate (or Mobil Synergy 8000 or Shell V-Power or Caltex Vortex 98) on the first tank. Rather 2-3 tanks depending on...

    thermo fan not shutting down

    My thermo fan is running non stop when the ignition is on, anyone know what the cause to that may be? It switches off with the ignition but runs non stop as soon as the engine is running? Engine is not running hot obviously, considering it starts as soon as the car does too. Perhaps a temp...

    Manifold Spacer Fitting. Does it fit VY S2 Ecotecs?

    Hey MACE, Do you have a picture of the VY manifold insulator at all? Does it look exactly the same as the gasket?

    Petrol Station Air Compressors

    They are, the auto ones can also generally only inflate to a maximum of 60 psi. But the auto ones are far and away the best option because of theft and damage. The manual tyre attachments are about $120, and we were losing one every few months. We tried the couplings that didnt allow them to be...

    How can i add traction control to a Stock VY Executive?

    I'd perhaps link it with LSD on top of that. My tyres aren't cheap ($390 a corner) but I don't have LSD which I think is largely to blame for the T/C being so intrusive. I doubt i'd have anywhere near the issues if I had an LSD diff as well.

    If you believe its a myth, heres an easy test for you to try. Get 2 plastic bottles, fill one with standard unleaded and fill the second with E85. Its not instant, but leave them in a tray or something and come back and see whats happened. Its what slowly happens your fuel system if its not...

    How can i add traction control to a Stock VY Executive?

    My VY Berlina Series 2 doesn't give forceback either. Plus one for T/C being a pain though, especially when pulling out into a gap in traffic, then it cuts the engine power and the car just sits for a few seconds. In some instances it is dangerous.

    Vr front

    Not on the two sets of VS headlights i've used... The VN/VP sockets and globes slot straight into the VR/VS headlights. So unless you took the sockets from a VR/VS and tried to plug the VN loom into the VR/VS sockets? But that makes no sense.

    Vr front

    Thats not correct, the headlights do not need any loom modification. Im unsure as to why you believe they would?
  24. 1991_Vn2nV

    Vr front

    You just need to cut the radiator support a little, just to round it like the VR/S radiator support, where as the VN one is squared at the edges. You need to swap the bonnet hinges over too as the VR/S ones differ to the VN/VP ones. You have to fit gas struts to the engine bay too if your car...

    A VS rear bumper should fit, not sure about a stato bumper tho. VS bumpers will leave a slight gap under the boot though, because the VS bootlid sits lower than the VN boot.

    VY Oil Issues

    I've been told by a few mechanics now that the VY's tend to burn through the 10w30 reccomended oil as they get a bit older. Any reccomendations for a VY approaching 150,000kms?

    Diesel Commodores

    In terms of diesel, as of this year we actually meet the highest current European standard. There are still many countries on E2 (500ppm), E3 (350ppm for diesel or 150ppm for petrol) and E4 (50ppm) whilst we are now at 10ppm. In terms of petrol, in Australia the requirement for regular unleaded...

    Tyres rubbing with narrower VL diff

    Maybe you should look them up or make a phone call because they ARE shorter. Next time you make a 3 year thread dig, make it relevant, and make sure what you are saying is actually correct.

    insurance and your postcode

    My auntie works for Allianz, when I queried about it she said it has nothing to do with socio-economic status or crim rates. It purely comes down to the number of insurance claims made by residents in that area. You may think that would correlate with crime rates and socio-economic status, but...

    Only difference from VN to VP would be IRS if the VP has it. Wagon exhausts will be longer than sedan exhausts.

    Its only 9 hours away but yeah I think directional headlamps may be on the cards, that and some form of launch control/assistance and 3 or so modes of stability control.

    AFL grand final

    Can't see Brisbane or Collingwood getting through next week, so looks like it will be Saints vs Bulldogs and Cats vs Crows to get into the Grand Final. Im tipping a Saints vs. Crows in the Grand Final with a Saints win.
