G'day all,

Just wanted to get photos of my baby up here.
Bought it off the cops when they all got the VE's, a few ks on her, but all round a great car. They actually did change the oil etc. and looked after it!!! I know, shock horror!:whistling

Also there's a dent in the bonnet where someone has been handcuffed against it :rofl:gotta get it taken out soon...

Model: VY Commodore Exec I

Colour: White

Engine: 3.8L Ecotec

Kilometres: Almost 180, 000

Exhaust: Standard, getting a new system soon, if anyone wants to make some suggestions...

Gearbox: 4-speed auto

Brakes: Standard

Suspension: Lowered a few inches....

Wheels/Tyres: Plastic hubcaps. bahahahaha. I'm looking at a set of 18" alloy over black ones, kinda sexy...

Interior: Standard executive, some cosmetic stuff

Stereo: Clarion set-up; I-Pod playing head unit, 6s in the front 6x9s in the door and 6x9s on the parcel shelf and a clarion sub with a Kenwood amp set-up in the boot

Other Mods: Some goodies the cops did when they had it, nothing too crazy...hauls ass though! :)

Future Mods List:
De-badge, should be this weekend - or next - this weekend - ok in a week or so....
Nothing over the top for the engine at the moment, the power the cops put into it is pretty good
I'm fog lights, and the indicator bits of the VZ
The rims i spoke about above...

and that should just about do it...deffinately a new paint job, after i get out the dings

Also, in the third photo, you can see where some a-hole has backed his bullbar into me (the top mark) and where the bolt holding my bumper on has popped out from (bottom mark).
Some people are just pricks...so now i need a new rear bumper!

I disagree, ex patrol cars do but ex commissioner's or high ranking officer's rarely abuse their cars, most of the ex cop cars I've seen are in better condition than alot of private cars.
