    Hey mate. Good pick up. Yeah some rims would be a good place to start. If you're thinking of changing the front bumper you should also consider some side skirts as well (depending on the bumper) , or it would be too front heavy.

    Looks neat.

    Rims and some drop springs will make huge look difference. For front bumper you might like to think of adding foglights (Brlina's will fit) , that changes stock bumper look as well for good.

    Looks good.

    I also have an '08 VE Omega in red. When I purchased mine, it had the rear spoiler and also 18" SV6 alloys using 245x45xZR18 rubbers. I prefer the SV6 alloys.

    Here's the link to mine: http://forums.justcommodores.com.au/ve-wm/186812-my-2008-ve-omega.html

    The base Omega's are 3.6l Fuel Injected. The other thing you could do is upgrade the exhaust to a dual exhaust for extra power. I'll be doing that to mine when I replace the exhaust.

    Mate just so you know the series 2 headlights won't fit your car, they are a slightly different shape. You could consider SSV headlights off a series 1 but they're not cheap and that money could be better spent elsewhere. I reckon go all black on the wheels, and get some lowered springs for sure.

    looking good Mate, IMO remove the "commodore" badge and go for a quad tip exhaust not for the power just for the look. Side skirts will cost you about $200-$300 second hand and can be a bitch to fit.
