Ladies and Gentlemen. Boys and Girls!
This is the moment that I have been waiting for. My first V8. Yup thats right. Iv sold the SV6 (ve) and down graded to a VY.

I went the Adventra CX8. Powered by the 235kw LS1. But weighing in at 1940kg's its got about the same performance as the VE V6. Fuel economy is about 14.5/100 so far, which is not bad. But give me peak hour and then we will see.


Its got leather seats, cd stacker, climate control, LSD (rear) and the cross track AWD system.
Lets not forget 120,000kms, full service history etc.

I want to thank Damien from Paul Spiker Autosales in Dandenong. He worked his ass off to get me this car.
Enjoy

Sounds nice. You'll love the V8 more than the V6 even if it only keeps pace with the smaller engine. Now you'll have the growl :yeah:
Pics?

their awesome to drive, I still love fanging through the windy roads in our SX6 which is surprisingly fun for the six banger.

You definately notice the Cross Track kicking in, and when it comes to towing a heavy load its fantastic :thumbsup:

they are surprising (dare i say cause i hate them) Subaru in the way you can pull out of 90degree corners and plant it and they just track with the awd,

if you are that way inclined, with exploring bush, numerous 4x4 mags always said if they had better tyres, they would be excellent for the bush for the kind of car they are, every review i read said they smash terribletories, in there bush handling abilites
