    Here's my phantom metallic MY09 VE SSV.
    I've had it since late November 2008 and it's taken me this long to post pics!

    It's mostly stock ATM. I've done a few cosmetic mods to it, as you'll be able to tell from the photos.

    MODS:
    20"x8.5" and 20"x9.5" Stamford wheels
    Lowered 1.5" (Pedders)
    Tints
    Chev front grille (bowtie badge painted grey to match SS badges)
    Boot lid debadged and a MY09.5 SSV badge added
    Stubby bee-sting aerial
    A top of the range alarm! ;)

    TO COME:
    CAI
    Tune (looking at Oztrack ATM)
    MAYBE exhaust if I can get one quiet enough (factory exhaust is loud enough for me - must be getting old!)
    Phreddy blue dash
    Phreddy RCA out mod
    Amp / upgrade factory speakers

    I think the rims really set the car off.
    I'm not really a fan of black on black

    F'ing pornnnn mate.

    I'd go with 20% tint and would look tops.

    Maybe a little lower too?

    Thanks man. Na, no interior pics, well no decent ones anyway. I'll try and get some soon.

    Future mods are as per my first post. :)

    Thanks Paul :thumbsup:

    Combined photo shoot sounds great - perhaps you're a better photographer than me! :yeah:

    You're spot on with the location of the boat ramp - htf did you guess that?

    Thanks mate.

    I'm pretty happy with the tint the way it is, but yeah I'm toying with the idea of going a bit lower too. Especially when I see other lower VE's - they just look so good!
    Don't like the idea of scraping over speed bumps/driveways though, so we'll see...

    Don't know about being a better photographer than you but i bet your camera is better than mine....( i only have a 5 mega pixel Nikon about 6 years old lol) i think they are giving them away now days...

    We used to go skiing from there a few years ago... but looks like they have fixed up the ramp since i last launched from there... ;)

    Also dave does yours have the AFM ?

    No, I got mine just before they changed over to AFM... thank goodness!

    I never really liked the idea - 10kW less for a measly 1L/100km better fuel economy.

    I've since heard from a few guys here that its a dud - economy is no better and power is compromised. :bang:

    ...Plus the badge looks gay ;)

    Yeah, I don't know what Holden were thinking putting it half way up the boot lid!

    I went for the clean look, with just the one badge. Some people have said it looks a tad too plain but I really like it.

    I wonder if the Calais lower chrome strip along the sides would really set it off?

    I agree, the new position of the badge just look's wrong !! I don't think it's plain it look's clean and neat :thumbsup:

    Yeah, I've thought about that but unsure how it would look. I would really need to photoshop it on there or something before making a decision like that!

    ...Then if I did that, I'd have to get the chrome mirror covers...and then the Calais chrome window surrounds :yeah: ;)

    Thanks Daz. :thumbsup:

    Yours is very nice too man. Sometimes I wish I went for the silver. Much easier to keep looking clean...
