    I think someone is pulling your leg. :whistling

    The 5.7 came out in the VTseries 2 (does it have series 2 badges on it?) and I recall it being 220kw at the time. The HSV was advertised in the VT2 brochure as having a 250kw output.

    I don't think HSV have made any wagon specials.

    Sounds like a nice car but unless work has been done to the engine (extractors, open exhaust, OTRCA, hi-flo air filter), you will have the 220kw engine.

    I think the above is all HSV do to bring the output up to 250kw

    HSV made some VT wagons.

    27 195i Senators in june 99 and
    8 250i VT II Senator Sig's in Oct 2000.

    Cost to buy new was $69,950 for the 195i and $71,000 for the 250i.:thumbsup:
