ignore the ghetto built in gps getting rid of that soon for the pionner head unit one

update:
Phreddy stye ASR audio lighting done by Ant in Perth
The pics and video really don't do the lighting any justice but it gives you a general idea of how good it looks
Got blue to red morphing needles with white screen, orange/yellow indicators dash lights and white high beam dash light. Blue key ring, blue lights switches, blue mode/set buttons, blue a/c controls with white for demist and aircon little buttons, blue gear and windows.

Car got hit while it was parked on the street near the shops, no note left, front bumper completely ####ed, will either be going a VZ GTZ body kit all round or just the exec front bumper, not sure yet as im thinking of looking for a WL-WM Grange later this year, will post pics of the damage soon

Keep it as an executive. If you were going all out with the car performance wise, to match the body kit then go for it. But cause you might look for another car later I wouldn't
Sucks about the damage. Ask some shopkeepers in the area if they have any surveillance cameras.

yeah i've decided that now cause a lot of the shops are trying to offer me HSV kits and i really dont wanna turn it into something it's not especially when it is only a 6. i am starting to think about an ls3 in it though just for kicks. yeah i went back and had an ask around and nothing that covers the area my car was in :( sucks because i just got my door repaired from someone side swiping me

cheers man :), yeahh so keen to get it fixed but thanks to a pay #### up im pretty much the exact price of a replacement short this pay so gonna have to hold out even longer. yeah the lighting makes an amazing difference love it and Ant is an awesome dude real easy to get on with, ive had problems with some power going through for the lights and all that but pretty sure thats because of the massive strain the new subs are putting on the battery time for a second one i think haha

Looks good - minus the front bumper! Haha. You'll always get dicks man.
cheers mate, yeah i was so pissed wonder how much having red p's in the window helped the desicion to just drive off

plan on posting pics of the bumper damage tonight
