    manual vs clubby
    im buying a sv s2 clubbie in a week or 2, im just wondering wat your thoughts about modding the interior, if theres even any point in doing it?

    my statesman wen i had it was going to be retrimmed in tan leather and i still like the idea of a tan leather car, but not in a clubbie.

    more than likely im going to leave it as is, but im just seeing if u guys know people that have done it to thier hsv's?

    Yeah with a clubby I would leave it all as is... I wouldnt change a HSV too much in terms of looks (other than wheels and tint etc maybe), just performance...

    I'd change the seats for sure, the VR/VS interiors if not leather were ugly.

    thats the interior, i was thinking race seats, but i honestly dont mind the interior as it is, mabey retrim a couple of things here and there, but im going for a short throw kit, the gear stick is too high for my liking

    as for performance, im leaving it, just an exhaust, exterior, wheels and lowerd

    the only thing needed to change on the zorst is better cats. The HSV systems are fine apart from this :) VS Senator gained 2/10's just changinging cats, made no gain anywhere with the whole exhaust.

    it may not be the most flattering style (beats my seats though) but you just gotta remember its a hsv, theres no real need to change much on them. and btw nice car too.

    pwaaaah i'd kill to have a vs clubsport, you lucky human being. well i wouldn't bother spending money on the interior, it's alright as it is. you can if you want to, but personally, i'd rather save the money as the interior is fine. :):):)
    good luck making a decision!

    Performance only, my GTS is clean all over (cept the intercooler) i still have standard GTS wheels. I even pulled the stickers off the window when i bought it. And the only interior change i want to make is the pillar cover. I will get the one with spots for the gauges.

    I'd tend to agree with the others and leave most of it standard, maybe tint, exhaust mods, etc but leave interior, wheels, etc standard

    Looks good IMO

    Get a Senator or GTS interior. They are exactly the same shape as the leather versions. Theyre real comfortable and really hold you in place. The only change Ive done to mine inside was install HSV pedals and I also took out the rear resonator
