    ve omega
    g'day i was just curios to whether i can make my standard omega look like a clubsport? if so how similar will they look? and what price range am i looking at? i also noticed with the clubsport the tail lights are down a little further as a pose to the omegas being a little bit higher does this mean i need a whole new rear panel?

    Yes, you can make an Omega look like a clubsport.

    The HSV rear quarters are the same as the standard commodore. They just use an infill piece above the tail lights. Pretty sure there is a complete back end for sale in our classifieds.

    How much will it cost? A lot. To my knowledge, no one is making aftermarket panels, skirts, bumpers, infidels or lights yet. So everything will need to be HSV genuine.

    There is a few people on here who have done part or full conversions. Have a search through the forums. I can't find the threads at the moment because I'm on my phone.

    So yeah, you can do it... but please don't. :p

    Have done this conversion to mine. I only did the senator rear to mine though, as it blends in nicely and doesn't stand out too much.

    Can someone explain to me why its "cool" to make your car look like something its not?


    I mean it looks good, but its like wearing a shirt that says you've got a 12" dick when you don't.

    Well, personally, I couldn't give 2 shits about anyone elses 'opinions' on what I do to MY car. It's MY car, MY money. I'll do whatever the f@#k I want to it.

    I would undoubtedly be against it, if someone were to put the whole kit on and then badge it as a HSV.

    My biggest problem is VY executives with HSV's kits that never fit properly.

    Looks horrid and its as far from a HSV as you would want to get.
    On the other side, if you've got 827rwhp you can pretty much do what you want :p

    The ass end of Unit's VE looks pretty good to me, something looks a little out of place thought. Don't know if its the paint or just the lighting or something else.

    I prefer the sleeper look myself though, not to mention its a lot cheaper.

    Probably the big Holden badge instead of HSV badges.

    imo if someone does the whole outside of the car to look like a hsv and badges it a hsv then thats not cool

    HOWEVER

    theres nothing wrong with taking a few bits that you personally think look good and putting them on

    for example, i think the hsv wheels, rear spoiler and rear lights look awesome but i dont like the rest of the car, therefore I have no problem putting these on my car (in fact i already have the hsv wheels and spoiler but cant justify the price of the lights)
    I havent changed the badges and I actually dont 'wannabe' a hsv since I prefer the look of the commodores, I just simply like those few bits

    How is that not ok, do I have to buy a whole overpriced car that I dont like just so I can have those few bits?
    You guys all modify your engines, suspension, exhaust, etc to something that isnt 'factory holden' because you like that way, so why cant someone modify the exterior with parts that dont come on it from 'factory' if they like that?

    People will still do it if they want so whats the point of arguing ? Any one with half a brain can spot a fake any way.....A standard VE with the right rims,lowered and tint can look a lot better than a wannabe HSV..... Just my 2 cents.

    Tom I agree with you here, there are a few bits and pieces that I am wanting to do for my sv6 basically what I am after is the look of the ssv's (minus the badges) and when you look at it the differences are only minimal.. Headlight, rear light, rear spoiler, quad tips and 19" wheels (after the clubby r8 rims 19's). But I agree on the fact that if you start changing badges over that's when the "wannabe" factor comes into play, ultimately its personal taste and its the drivers choice as they will be the people driving there car.

    If you have the WHOLE body kit on an executive with a V6 and cloth interior it looks ridiculous.
