i dont mind the wheel but i wont complain as it came like that from the dealer with Dunlop sp sport 3000a with fairly new tread so until they are nearly gone im gonna keep them on there, and i still can believe how much better it is than the vl and i wont miss mine as its been a money pit of problems. Im planning on upgrading the stereo soon and i would also like to do a dash light conversion that ASR audio and electronics do but would need to wait for a roadshow to adelaide

Nice Ride Mate. Any Other Mods Planned?
2 Hole Mod and 2.5" Catback would be a good start and cheap too.
Cheers,
Shaune

If it's had dealer service or has good log books find out when the fluids like brake, power steer, coolant and auto trans were done and get them done first of all. As a rul eI change the power steerign fluid about every 12 months. If you can't establish when they were done best to do them now especially the brakes and coolant.
I doubt the 2 hole mod does anything except make it noisy and the standard exhaust shoudl be fine.
