    E85 Race Tune Pirate may have been right!

    In mine after about 4 tanks of e85 mine starts like it's got a flat batery, put 98 back in and fires instantly, I believe pirate says it can fixed with a tune. Edit- just reading above might give caltex stuff a go and see if I have the same problem

    VE vs VE Z series

    My MY12 Thunder has the small holed tweeters and also the traction control light displays on the cluster and when TC is off it puts the orange symbol on the cluster as well, so maybe some of these changes started before the Z MY 12.5 series ?

    My Ride...

    Never seen the exhausts coming out there before looks good, is that an aftermarket bumper or do you make it ?

    Engine light on

    Could be your O2 sensors where they plug into your exhaust after the cats, could be knackered or maybe loose... worth a look I guess

    Mods begin? Brakes, Wheels and other q's

    They will not fit behind Thunder rims If you don't want to buy new rims and are happy to look at other brakes I believe XYZ brakes fit behind the thunder rims and also AP Racing brakes

    Driving lights

    Good point, I also think it would need some kind of dimming switch so they come on at half power, those DRLs would be retina burning at night.

    e85 in my ve ssv?

    Interesting my S2 E85 compatible Ute did the same thing, have been using E85 maybe 1 tank in 5, but in the last couple of months have been using E85 and on about the forth tank it was getting rarely hard to start like it had a flat battery, ran 3 tanks of 98 through it and it starts instantly...

    ssv vs ss thunder?

    Only difference is ssv has full leather seats thunder has leather bolsters Ssv has projector headlights thunder doesn't I think the ssv has a better stereo or maybe just a subwoofer thunder has no sub I think that's about it, they both have sat nav thunder has different wheels

    Tax time and go fast bits

    My last years return took nearly two months, this years was done in five days and they were just simple ones I done myself. You may just be in a back log or they may be looking over your return with a 5.5k return that could be the case, I know of people who have had to wait for health...

    I saw a white ssv sports wagon at Walkinshaw Ormeau yesterday getting the W310 package installed, so looks like people are dumping a extra 6.5 k on the mod :rofl:

    VE Series 2 OBDII reader??

    The OP has said he wants to use it with his iPhone Bluetooth will not work with a iPhone I have tried with a ELM327 Bluetooth, if its jailbroken you might get it working but I doubt it, wifi is the only one that will work with iphone

    VE Series 2 OBDII reader??

    Make sure you get a wifi one as the Bluetooth one will not work with your iPhone, apples Bluetooth is locked down you may get it working on JB iPhone but will be more trouble than its worth.

    Have anyone tried this self tuning package?

    On the first page if you scroll right down through all the bullshit there is a picture of what you get and it is a ELM327 OBD Dongle with their software lol a quote from the page However — TOAD can not download/upload the ECU data from/to the car. For that you'll need a separate Tuner kit below...

    Wind noise?

    Your not alone mate mine does the same thing, had it investigated at first service said they tweaked the seal of course when I drove it home the noise was still there. I do like to drive in silence sometimes no music and just listen to the engine and I must say it does piss me off.
