    Orderd some more T10 LEDs and put them in as my parkers, they look sweet :)

    Latest update!

    Went and visited Nathan at Automotive Lighting Customs in Rowville and he hooked me up with some HID's! They are amazing, can't wait to go back and get my high beams and foggies done.

    Hey guys so here are my latest updates on the car.

    Finally got some new shoes for her today and am so happy with them! Got them for $1,025 from eBay. All new tyres (Mayruns 235/35/19).

    Also picked this up from a bloke on Gumtree for $70. Fingers crossed it fits but it sounded pretty nice when I had a look at it on his VZ SV6.

    You will notice in the photos as well I de-baged the 'Commodore' and 'Lumina' badges, looks much more neater now! Also ended up plasti dipping my front badge black as well.

    Went back and visited Nathan at Automotive Lighting Customs and got my high beams and foggiest turned to HID, absolutely stunning vision. He also persuaded me into getting some footwells and puddles done as well! So I thought why not. So all of my interior lights are now white (sunglass holder, rear reading lights, footwells, keyhole light), and my puddle lights on all four doors are blue. Looks pretty P-Platerish, but I'm very happy with the end result! Very clean and tidy job all for a reasonable price.

    Next up I am thinking of getting some new springs for her, also new strut mounts and a brace. Doing a bit of research I have been kinda keen on the Pedders SportRyders, but will see down the track whats best and what works.

    Other then the new springs and strut mounts and bar I might have to look at getting my interior lights done from this bloke.

    His work seems pretty good, and it looks sweet. Everything to white besides my needles, they will be blue (well thats the plan anyway).

    Ill put up a video of me comparing the exhausts once I fit it!

    So fitted up my new exhaust the other day its really really loud, would even come close to saying too loud. The drone is crazy as well. But the one thing that is most annoying is this knocking/vibrating sound I get from the cats hitting either a bolt of something under the car. Its driving me nuts. Any movement in the exhaust and I can hear it (mostly when I' am turning).

    I was going to put it off and purchase an 2.25 Xforce catback system from Tuff Car Parts in Morrabin (Tuff Car Parts Online Performance Store - Australian Mail Order Performance Parts Online) but have decided to first grab some high flow cats which will hopefully put an end to this annoying rattle. Going to try Mr Muffler and see how I go.

    Will post up some videos and quotes tomorrow. Peace.

    Nice rig mate looks the goods.
    I picked up the numberplate lights for my rig today, I was tossing up between the arctic blue and the ultra blue - decided to go with the ultra blue.
