    hey everybody

    just a quick update of sorts, havnt done any mods to speak of, however the right hand side rear quater pannel is now screwed. i was parked in a carpark, having some lunch at a maccas when another p plater who was parked next to me just decides to swing straight into my car. from the first quote i have got, looks like $1200 damage, but she had insurance so thats all good. funny thing is that she only had her p's for 3 days, so talk bout a good way to start.

    will post some pics later on, with hopefully some good news on the repairs

    Nice and clean! Doubt your still rolling with whatever the stock power was dude, not after 181XXX km's. Not far off though ;)

    Any major plans?

    ├Żeah mate got a few plans, but main plan is to just get it fixed first.

    but after that i was thinking about a set of vt gts rims for it, nothing too fancy

    best v6 combo the commodore has seen so far.


    ecotec and a t5 are a deadly combo. especially in a ute. my mate has one and its deadly on 15's and in the wet.

    colour coded bumpers would finish it off well.

    well car is now in the pannel beaters for a week to get fixed, so im walking for the next week :cry:

    on the plus side, mum and dad agreed to buy me new speaker for my birthday in a month, looking at either kicker, fusion or jl audio in 6.5 inch 2 way component speakers, but if anyone else has some suggestions feel free to chuck them my way :yeah:

    and really want a new set of shoes for my car right now, looking at either vx gto rims, vt gts rims or even these atp utesters im quite liking right now

    vt gts - Wheels

    vx gto - Wheels

    atp utester -Wheels

    only problem is the severe lack of funds atm, so i dont think the utesters will be possible, but let me know what u think of the others or suggest some of ur own if u want, im open to suggestions.

    Cheers Chris

    VS Series 2 ute
    i put 19 inch chomies on my vs ute and it turned into a total slug. choose something light weight if you still want decent pickup.
