Hi all, this is my third car, but the first ive actually chosen to buy, my first two were just cheap from friends, a 1988 Carolla for $500 and then when the head gasket blew on that after a year, i bought a 99' Vectra from my mate for 3 grand, had that for 2 years then finally decided it was about time i got something i really wanted so i went and picked up on friday for just $10,700, hope you like it!

haha yehh true. Ahwell still looks nice mate, real clean.

Try it 'spoiler-less' for a few days and see what ya think :p easy to put back on afterwards, and i rekon the silver will really suit a no spoiler rear end.

am eager to know what you guys think and what might look good, or what some simple and cheap mods might be to get a bit of extra performance!

UPDATE!
Finally got my custom plates on, papers went through to vicroads n now i officially own it...about time!,
also due to one of my friends geezin up my vehicle last night and my complete lack of mechanical know-how hes pointed out that i have a growler system
(sorta thought it sounded different to a friends VY-S but didnt take too much notice)
but yes..this makes me happy lol cos i think once i get my exhaust done it may add a bit to the note i get?,
Anyway...heres a few pics of my plates on and under the hood, pics arent great just took em in the driveway


Am also contemplating painting my engine cover, what colour would look good do you guys think?
I'm kinda leaning towards red?
