    looks great in black. dump it on its arse and get a nice set of shadow chrome 20s for it and you will be set :thumbsup:

    and possibly the euro lights at the front.. if you want ill find some pics of a black VX clubby with them in, it looks great

    love the clubby mate. it needs bigger rims though. some 19's or 20's would look good.

    thanks for all the comments guys.
    mods will have to wait abit coz due to small prang with other car a couple of months back the insurance is not too great on this car and being under 25 doesnt help either....but they will come....just need to speak to them first after a few months and see if it effects my policy or I go with JustCar insurance and go like crazy.

    Troy711:
    i have them on my VT and as much as they look good the light they emit is not that great..they have this sort of narrow beam that is quite annoying and the fact that it used 2 H1 globes instead of 1 H4 and 1 H1 as standard it struggles to produce the same amount of light.

    the look of shadow chrome 20s or the rim style with black backing and just the spokes silver sounds really good and minimum of 30mm lower front and back than now...hmmmmmm :cool:

    well the car has been in my hands for one week before it went back to the dealer i bought it off for some repairs.....lucky for warranty....
    so havent had a chance to take photos of it outside the showroom yet plus the weather here has been pretty wet.
    i pick it up tomorrow and if the weather is good on the weekend will get some pics

    Future Performance mods are:
    Stage 1
    Extractors
    Exhaust
    Hi Flow Cats or Ported Cats
    OTRCAI
    RipShift Street
    LS1 custom dyno edit

    Stage 2
    Cam
    rebuild and strengthen engine
    Maybe Supercharger

    Also thinking about lowering it 1" all round but the kit hangs so low it might make it illegal height plus the R8 suspension feels so damn nice.....all these dilemmas

    Future Audio Visual mods are:
    Pioneer Double DIN touch screen deck with inbuilt 6 cd stacker (mp3 dvd, etc)
    new speakers all round
    put subs from VT back in
    dynamat the boot and front doors
