    Vf sv6 tyres

    because if there was a variance they could cop very big fines.

    Vf sv6 tyres

    The ADR changed and manufacturers are required by law to do this to comply with the standard. This also applies to the OP, who by making his speedo out could make his vehicle unroadworthy. This could attract a defect notice if the speedo no longer meets the standard set out in the ADR...

    Clubsport lights have a bit of a teardrop shape. So yes, it's the bar and light.

    Vf sv6 tyres

    It is compliance not practice, this is an important thing to note because without this guidance manufacturers would not do this they are more than capable of making speedo's accurate. Also variances have been demonstrated to vary between manufacturers. Toyota in particular have been noted as...

    Vf sv6 tyres

    it's not "industry practice" it's a legal requirement.

    that certainly is a description, got me beat can't think of any humming noises. Do you feel anything (other than dread) when the noise happens, like is it a vibration? only thing i can thing is that perhaps at those k's the engine mounts or something are worn and you are getting a vibration.

    VF Calais flat battery with auto start

    sounds pretty weird, you should have just been able to press the stop/start button again.

    VZ 190 220kw Possible?

    yeah but the old straight 6's were worth playing with - and cheap to get good results. mine was cammed, high compression heads, triple carbs, pacemaker headers fiddled with diff ratios - the V6 in the VZ is a bit of a disappointing unit until you spend megabucks on a turbo or maybe the...

    Cracked Chrome Trim on Lower Front Grill on VFII SV6

    without reading the thread too much i would be prepared to say defect. The chrome trim around my passengers side air vent went like this. I ordered another one from eBay which is also like this so annoying. had to get a refund. Got a third incoming hopefully the chrome isn't lifting on that one.

    i'm with you here, alternator recos are trivial. i have a hard time believing you can't get the brushes and bearings for the VF unit.

    Why do people overprice their Commodores

    isn't rosy? I disagree, Holden's will just be the exclusive domain of enthusiasts. To me that's a bonus. Sounds like you can't wait to move on, personally I've only ever owned Holden - never considered anything else.

    Why do people overprice their Commodores

    There are many other cars out there, but Holden's still hold a place for a lot of us.

    what oil suits a VT 5.7lt clubbie with 175klm on it? ☆PLZ HELP?

    Just use what is recommended pretty much. So full synth 5W30 or 5W40 - my preference is Penrite HPR5. Don't fall into the use heavy oil trap. 173,000 isn't that high anyway. My VXII was still using HPR5 up to and over 230,000. If you feel the urge maybe 10W40 but i'd really not go over that, So...

    Battery charger/trickle charger

    that's not what safety switches are for. safety switches go when there is already fusion to stop the place burning down. you want surge protection. BIG difference. with a decent charger removing the terminals is definitely not needed. as for jump start points under the bonnet - well you...

    Steering issue

    i did this, GM agreed to pay for it. need to get it aligned somewhere good though not a tyre fitter or a crappy mechanic. OP take the car to a good suspension place and just get it looked at. Dunno who you have down there but here in Brissie I use Fulcrum.

    ESC Competitive Mode

    should also make the steering heavier. Does on VF.

    Strut top mount how to check if failing

    gaps are completely normal. get someone to turn your wheels full lock back and forth while you watch. just get a second opinion if you are concerned, but if they are indeed strut top mounts with 180,000 on them yeah they are probably due - and just about every other suspension component.
