    Well its been an eventful 4 years and I'm back with a new car ahah. I did have a brief stint of owning an old hj one tonner for 2 weeks but that's another story.

    So here it is, I pick it up on Tuesday and am so excited!

    Big brake packed (6 piston at the front 4 at the rear), walkingshaw short shifter, stock sun roof, black outs on the usual spots and it comes with 2 full sized spare wheels.

    I drove it today and i'm happy as is and I doubt I will do any mods. The person I bought it off had it from new, very well maintained and clean car.[​IMG]

    Cheers lads,

    Yeh I loved the colour as well, the scheme matches my Yzf R1 lol

    As for a to do list, its mainly tasteful ones

    wash and polish
    new key shell (one of the keys is loose)
    dash mat
    theres a few little stone chips in the bonnet, I might see what one of the guys at work can do with it
    rims painted black
    maybe some parts wrapped black
    HID lights
    interior light LED conversions (from halogen to the white leds)
    HSV Logo courtesy lights
    And I want to make it a little louder but try and keep the bi modal exhaust

    Ok maybe exhaust work and cold air intake but that's it for engine performance haha

    I might even black out a few parts too

    Im a hoon so anything fast is always fun but I have to be careful since I don't want to lose my license....again LOL. My bike (R1) is faster but obviously the pull in this car is pretty nice. Like you said though if I wanted to show off and be fast id chop everyone on my bike. Id rather not spend 10k on the car and then have a possibility of engine failure.

    Picture time!

    Gave it a wash today and I guess the good thing about that is you get to see where all the faults are in the paintwork. I know there are a few but for the price I paid im pretty happy.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So theres a few stone chips on the bonnet
    [​IMG]

    The front bumper needs a bit of work but what could you expect. Interesting how its cracked the paint though....

    [​IMG] [​IMG]


    And finally, the rear bumper. It seems as if some dropkick has been using a grinder near it and all the sparks have gone all over the rear bumper around the boot area. (this is the rear bumper area under the boot lid)

    Pics look great

    Yeah i wouldn't do more than a full exhaust, OTR intake and a Tune on a car like this (which would make it more than quick enough for the street)

    Just for anyone curious,

    A new set of discs for the 6 pot brakes will set you back $1400 each (left/right)

    I don't need to do the for another 50-60,000kms and I think with my company discount I get them down to $600 each. So yeah,just some general knowledge aha

    Id probs check out the prices over all and decide from there, mostly get the brake set though.

    On another note, my rear bumper and numberplate area is getting covered by this fine black dust and it looks shithouse.

    Anyone else ever experienced this? Im putting it down to the new brake pads. I hope it stops after a while :S

    I only logged on to congratulate you on the pickup. Been a long time coming! no doubt you will treat this thing like a new born baby.

    For that rear bar and boot buy yourself a clay bar. Might get most of the crap off then machine buffing should fix the rest.+
    Don't lie to us all this thing needs an intake and full exhaust. That Ls3 needs to be opened up! what i have done in the past is cut the stock Bi modal pipe off the rear muffler and wielded it onto aftermarket rear mufflers on a full exhaust. That was it still works like factory
