    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

    black, the same shade as your airbox..either that or a silver to colour code with the car.

    Considering at the moment whether to spend money on lowering or money or upgrading sound system first, if i lower it i will put it on pedders springs but not too low as i want to be able to get in my driveway, just a nice level that looks sweets, if i upgrade sound i was thinking of clarion or kenwood as those are the brands i had in my last car and they friggen rocked lol, was thinking a total of around a grand for my sound system but am flexible, anyone have any suggestions on what i should get and what combinations seem to get the best sound?

    What you looking for quality or just loud? Clarion and kenwood are pretty average brands but on a budget aren't bad. I would recommend alpine type r splits tho they are great but only if ur gonna amp them. And kicker subbies and mono. U lookin for 2nd hand stuff or brand new?

    My mate bought a Soundstream 1000RMS amp and a 1800w Soundstream sub for about $800 delivered all up off ebay (bought the two seperate). You can feel the air moving even though the sub is in the boot.

    ive got alpine type s splits and 6x9s sound quality is really good, type rs are obviously better but i didnt have the spare $ at the time so if ur on a budget the type s's are good

    i paid 900 installed and got the 6x9s, splits, deck, facia, speaker grills. i already had a sub and amp so just told them to throw that in.

    and i think its about $100 difference with type r compared to the type s. with type x's being even more than type r
