can i add that i love this car to bits, i cant get enough of driving it, i did a 20km from a friends house back home, which included a bit of a mountain, and corners, up and downs at speeds of 90, 80, 60, 50, the computer averaged out 6.3 lt/100km when i got home, you cant ask for anything better than that

thanks, its booked in at holden tomorrow for some warranty jobs so hopefully they'll be taken care of, and hopefully ill be getting tint soon,

i have to pay back mum and dad a little bit of money first before i can do much with it but after that things should go together pretty smoothly,

any recomendations like either a sv6/ss or berlina/lumina/calais or vz monaro bar?

thanks for that, yeah i like the ss wheels but that cost a fair bit more and usually they have tyres that are worn out,

with the manual conversion, i looked at mine than had a good look at a 6sp ute at work and i believe it would be a pretty straight forward swap, it may have to be towed to holden to get the computer re-programmed unless i buy a front cut from somewhere and swap the ecu over..... but thats in a few years time yet, but theres no harm in thinking

yeah i thought my conversion would be a year ahead or so but have got the doner car already and will proberly do it in a month or so. Yeah those tires are always a bit more expensive and come with worn tires, anless you find ones that were taking off stright from when the car was bought. But they do look good and i wouldnt go any other... im thinking of getting VY SS's for mine.
