    Genuine OEM VF Commodore Police HWY Transmission Cooler.

    Dont forget when they add the oil cooler they the dealer have to add the correct level of oil and you don't have a dip stick so how can you or how can they check the correct level without doing the check that is needed when you have a auto service on your Vf Redline. Remember the oil level has...

    unfortunately this has happened, so may I ask you do you want a 80% pay cut to compete with china. I bet not. Some Chinese people work for 7 days just to live and that's it.

    Tyre blew after 7000km

    Possible china but it should be made here in Australia. Covid and the arrogance of china has bough the World at Attention and possibly one outcome is we rely to much on a arrogant communist country. If it was not for Covid and if happened 10 years from now china would have a stronger hold on the...

    Tyre blew after 7000km

    The Ryco ST brand have a higher flow RATE. I use the Ryco ST for my V6 and the V8's. There is video to prove that the ST series of filters are better to use on any car compared to the normal Ryco filter. The ST variant is not available to all Engines.

    2013 MY14 Caprice V withTPMS

    Unfortually the TPMS monitors only 4 tyres not 5. Yres it would be good if they had on the screen 4 tyres in formation like what on the car but on the side of the centre screen they have a 5th tyre there too and monitor it too.
