Hey guys,

This is my pride and joy...I have had it for 2 yrs now and have been a member here for 1.5yrs but only managed to post pics now. I bought this car at Hunter Holden in Jan 07 with 24k on the odo and it reads 60k now :)

The EQUIPE's features (as i bought it) are:

Model: 2005 VZ Equipe
Colour: Barbados
Engine: 3.6L 175 Alloytec
Gearbox: 4 Speed Auto
Exhaust: Stock
Diff: Stock (not sure if it's LSD)
Suspension: FE2
Wheels: Stock 17"
Tyres: Sumitomo HTR ZII
Interior: 2 tone black and cream leather
6 CD Stacker, Tow Bar, Rear parking sensors

Current Mods:
- SS Body Kit
- 2 hole mod...
- Lowered on Lovell springs
- Phreddy's Combo Mod (mp3 jack and low level RCA output)
- Upgraded door speakers (Pioneers all round)

Future Mods:
- Pioneer 6x9s on parcel shelf (Subs are a No-No as space is a premium for me)
- Amp to drive all speakers
- 10% chance of an exhaust upgrade :p (This being a 6, I guess there's not much point in spending money)

Anyway, thats it for now and hope to catch some of you on a cruise.
Please scroll further down for more pics.

Thanks for the compliments! Here are few more pics...
I decided to take my car off-road in Blue Mountains and this is what happened to it...I had to spend $500 to get the wheel alignment and get the camber kit replaced...
the other pics are from a south coast NSW trip.

I went to Castle Hill Exhaust a few days ago...but they were busy so couldn't get their suggestion on upgrading exhaust. Will visit them again in the next few days and see how it goes.

Nice car mate now u need some 19" to set it offf and calais rear and front lights woohoo hahaha i luv em!!!
You are right :) But, it already scrapes on all driveways and road humps...:bang: putting on 19s will just kill the floor hehe

Calais front & rear lights...FTW!!! but, once I get a job...something inside me wants to upgrade to a v8 :whistling and I have been dreaming about a VE Clubsport R8...

If that happens, I will never get a decent return on all the investment. Anyway, time will tell which way I go!
