So, it's been a long time since I've been on the forum, for many unfortunate reasons, but that's beside the point. The point is I'm back and in a good place :)
So back to the story, this is my 08 Calais Wagon.
I've had it for 2 months and am already madly and deeply in love(upgraded from a Hyundai excel, yes I know, desperate times call for desperate measures)
It's a little rough around the edges, couple dings here and there from the previous owner but nothing a bit of time and effort can't fix, plus I couldn't turn down a bargain.
As for mods, so far it's on Tein coilovers(which I need to raise, looks great, but crap roads are no es bueno) has an xforce catback and thanks to said previous owner has a set of genuine HSV staggered pentagons.
I'll be working on the couple of body issues slowly but for now just loving being back in a car I'm passionate about, plus the V8 helps cheer me up.

Good looking wagon mate, good choice.
I need to find a set of mint Pentagons to have as a change from time to time, I love those wheels!

Thanks guys, I'll have to take a few more pics soon. Yeah I love the pentagons, they've got a few bits of rash here and there but nothing I can't fix.
Just had new plugs put in(fairly sure they'd never been changed) and got the injectors flushed as I was having some issues with it stumbling at idle, now running like a champ, which I'm very happy about given how expensive iridium plugs are hahaha

The other night after a quick clean, still need to give her a proper wash and decent sealant application. Actually surprised at the lack of swirling in the paint, it has some scratches but where the paint is solid there are hardly any imperfections.

PS apologies for the poor pic quality, need a better image compressor.

Try using Imgur for pic hosting. Works well.
