    I really do love the original wheels now too.... and everytime i see that photo up top with the original wheels i fall in love, but they have a fair bit of scrapes and flakey paint and that sorta thing, they dont look too great up close.

    And pugz, just come visit one day ill show ya how loud it is, its loud but not over the top or anything, i think it sounds real nice.
    I got the car for $10,700, and it had the exhaust already on it, so i cant tell ya what thats worth, although i think the pacemakers are around 7-800 installed, and its got the stock hsv system on it so yeah....

    Ever thought of having them zinc dipped, would look like the VS GTS wheels then. Quick rub back to fix any imperfections, nice dipping and voile!!

    Thought about it for a lil bit... but dunno, its a clubby not a gts, if i wanted to keep the wheels original i'd keep em silver, but fixed up and lookin mint.
    Ive still got the rims, and im not gettin rid of them.

    Yeah original does look good... and im not plannin on keepin those 18's for that long, i want either wh grange wheels in champagne or some sort of 19's, and itll look a ****load better with the rear sittin a bit lower.
    Heaps of ppl keep tellin me to ditch the spoiler too, it pisses me off, so dont even bother sayin it to me cause its staying!!!!!

    Gotta keep the spoiler. Im not a huge fan of spoilers on VN/VP, but since mine is a HSV its saying on, and I like my spoiler. I think VR/S look better with spoilers.

    Yeah i agree with ya there, i dont like the ss spoilers on vr/vs though they are pretty lame.
    But all the hsv ones rnt too bad.
    But the vn/vp is more squarish doesnt look good with a spoiler hangin off it.
    And why deface a hsv, it shouldn't happen!
