    Picked up my first commodore earlier this year, a stock 06 VZ SV6 5 speed auto/active select with the 190kw alloytec engine. Been lurking these forums for a while now picking up lots of helpful advice and thought it was time I posted some pics of my ride.

    - 19" VZ clubsport rims

    - Duel 2 1/4 catback exhaust

    - Two hole Mod with Monaro induction shroud

    - Super low king springs all round with standard fe2 shocks

    - 20% Tinted windows

    - Debadged at the back

    - Callipers painted red

    - Engine covers painted red

    - Tinted tail lights

    - Removed the mudflaps


    Future Mods:


    - Extractors

    - Dyno tune from CHE

    - Gear diff change

    - Paint the rims black and redwall the tyres

    - What ever else happens ;)


    Anyway see what you think, any feed back and advice would be great. Cheers

    Thanks mate have had some issues loading up pics so will get some more up when I can. Yea the super low height is good and not too bumpy without new shocks. I put some SSL springs in the back originally but I didnt like it and the ride was absolute crap not to mention the handling so changed it over and is not nearly as bad.

    Look great mate, sits well. Would recommend a HID, makes a massive difference on the road, plus looks very nice compared to yellow standard bulbs.

    Na that's just how it sits with SL king Springs all round, had SSL in the back at first but didn't look right imo...


    Have since put a Duel 2 1/4 catback exhaust on which am very happy with and am on the look out for some new extractors. If anyone knows an exhaust place in Sydney that knows anything about these engines let us know coz I am yet to find one. Also did the two hole mod with the monaro induction shroud, Painted the calipers and tinted the tail lights. Will put some updated pics up soon ;)
