Here is my 2012 SV6!

Late last year I was in the market for a new car to replace my '07 Lumina. After signing the paperwork for a sexy new Z-Series on LPG in early October, I was so excited! Paying cash for a brand new car at the age of 20 felt so good. Anyway as time went by, I was hit with delay after delay. It got to late January and I got a call saying it was delayed again until late March, early April, and he still couldn't give me a delivery date. I decided enough was enough, and I got my money back.

So I was back in the market, and with no 2013 LPG models around, I settled for a 2012 (And saved a pretty penny, mind you). Could have waited until December until I had a full licence, to get a VF SS, but I think a 6 is more than enough power for me. And buying a house is on the horizon, as well!

Looks nice man!

Never knew Karma was a Series 2 colour!

Is it full leather or leather bolstered?

Full cloth. I've never been a fan of leather, unfortunately. :(

The cloth is quite nice, IMO.

Why does it have only 1 exhaust outlet? I thought all high output alloytec engines had the exhaust on both sides? Unless the LPG tank is in the way and you cant have dual exhausts on them???

I think its to do with the exhaust velocity cause the exhaust on an LPG car is a bit cooler than petrol.

Nice car by the way, I've been contemplating leasing one to travel to work in. whats it like on gas?

It's a little heavy at the moment, around 15-15.5L/100 in heavy traffic and 10 on the highway, but it will get better as everything loosens up.

My dual fuel 07 Lumina, with 160,000 on the odometer would get 13 around town and 9.5 highway easily.

Stereo has been upgraded!

I went with Alpine Coax in the back, Alpine Splits in the front and a slim sub/amp combo in the boot.

I went back today to get a four channel Alpine for the speakers, because I wanted more! :)

Money well spent :)
