    VY Calais 3.8
    G'day guys I'm new to this forum. This is my first car, 2002 VY Calais series 1. Purchased back in October last year with 100,000kms on it. Really happy with the purchase. Since then I have done some minor mods, basically getting rid of the granny spec stuff. One day I would like to carry out an LS1 conversion, I'm one of those people who can't rid of their first car.

    Current
    Suspension: Munroe gt sports shocks with King spring super lows
    Brakes: standard
    Engine: stock ecotec 3.8
    Exhaust: stock

    Future:
    Ve series 1 wheels 18inch
    Pacemaker extractors, new cat back system with high flow cat
    Ss inductions growler kit
    Slotted Roters with new brake pads
    Auto box shift kit
    Genuine holden LSD
    Maybe an ls1 conversion... See how we go

    Looks good mate, I've got a delft blue VY myself. Was thinking of buying some VE SS rims and painting them black after seeing yours, looks heaps clean. The only thing I would do different is throw some SSLs in the rear.

    Cheers mate. The delft blue is an immaculate colour for a vy. I purchased these including tyres for $450. Got the wheels machined for $200 at Morton and Mays in Narallen. Club VE on Facebook has some good deals on wheels. Yeah personally I'm not a fan of having the rear lower than the front but everyone is different. If you have a berlina or calais have a look at some VZ Calais tail lights.

    Nah only a Lumina sadly. Wish she was a Calais. I've had it for 2 years haven't really done much to it just looked after her and put a good sound system in, want to lower it and put rims on it now and drive it till I get my fulls.

    Looking at a set of VE SS rims tomorrow, predrilled and he only wants $250 for them but the thread isn't that great, but that's okay I'll sell mine and replace the tyres.

    Looks Mint. How does it handle speed humps? I'm wanting to lower my exec but go over them everyday :s Sick of it looking like a monster truck with the stock set up.

    Looks hectic! Actually i reckon the lip looks good on that car. Some cars suit a lip some don't. This does.

    Panthers are going well this year. Watch out for the Warriors in the final round though ;)

    Oran Park, when I heard you got the wheels predrilled in Narellan thought you may have been a local.

    Getting SL springs tomorrow, hopefully I can fit them up too :)
