Hey guys
I have just purchased my first SS-V and i pick it up this week, I've never had a V8 before so this is quite new to me and exciting, Loving the power and the noise it makes.
It's lowered on Supersports, has a catback exhaust and also comes with a factory sunroof. I will probably upgrade the stereo and speakers but not much else for a little while. Happy for any suggestions people may have as well.

Nice one mate. Agree with above, OTR and tune will wake it up a bit. And definitely look at coating it, especially because of the colour.

Thanks guy's for the warm welcome, I will have a proper look over the car when i pick it up Tuesday and see what's already been done. I know there hasn't been much engine work at all, all seems pretty standard and that's what i was looking for as you never know what the previous owner has done. I'll also post some more pics. Cheers:)

Hi guys
So i picked her up today and have been out enjoying the sunshine, Totally happy with it except for 1 small thing. The previous owner installed Head rest DVD players (as seen in pic 3), now as good as that may sound they are pretty tacky and i haven't tested them to see if they work yet. I will have to shop around as hard as that may be for a set of normal ones. I'm guessing i may have to buy a set of SS or SV6 ute seats even in fabric and have them reupholstered. But for now I'll just enjoy the sunshine.

Lock nuts are a must anywhere IMO.
