    I'd leave the skirts off you'll just end up with rusty sill panels from screwing in the screws to hold them on... just go the front ss lip :thumbsup:

    I really dislike the completely clear ones... But the chrome altezza's would look good on your silver, or the ones with the black background... But with the silver paint, I reckon the chrome altezza's would look sweet man :thumbsup:

    Dammit! thats exactly what i was going to say. clear look crap but the chromes would look sweet especially since the little garnish thing is silver now and it has no badges. Maybe you could go for them newer looking chrome headlights too, that would really set off the front. and like everyone else said, the ss skirt on the front would make it look even better.

    sweet ride man, keep it up!

    and just a quick question.... where'd you find them rims, wouldn't mind them on my car:yeah: and if you don't mind me asking, how much would you expect to pay for them?

    thanks, 94vrexec

    You know how much power you loose putting a Ram Pod on a V6 dude, well, then again on most holden engines you do. You need to re-map your ECU to handle the extra air, belive me, my mates cluby lost a shitload of power from a K&N air filter.

    around 500kms for mine, i get around the 11lt/100km mark
    full exhaust (extractors + cat back) with cai and k&n hi flow filter makes it alot more fuel efficient on my car :)

    check for errors on your computer (found in the howto section of forum) because you may have a oxygen sensor problem or somehting :)
