    Definitely lose the rear wing and hornet style bonnet scoop man....

    The car looks sweet with the kit, looks like an SV5000 style kit with slight differences :thumbsup: but the rear wing and bonnet scoop ruins it...

    Love the colour too

    BAD: This is what most commodore owners will call RICE. Spoiler/Bonnet scoop when clearly un-neccesary.

    GOOD: I love the rims and colour!

    not my cup of tea.

    i have to agree with the others in saying that the rear wing and scoop have to go. but it's your car and its what you like. nice colour and rims the rest of the kit looks good too. the future plans sound good.

    she looks nice man, the bonnet scoop is ok but the VN's dont need the wings,

    im not the biggest fan of the SV5000 kit, thats just me tho,
    nice colour and most of all nice effort, shes real clean

    gotta agree. spoiler and scoop dont suit it. is that scoop even legal? maybe a group a bonnet bulge instead?

    got any photos from the rear?
