    Just got myself a '11 series 2 thunder.

    Realized when I get off of my p plates a V8 isn't really needed and I can always supercharge this if I want more power.

    It's very zippy and more responsive then my VZ and the gear stick is nice and doesn't have much throw at all.

    I don't know what mods I am doing as of yet, but each time I do one I will upload it and anyone watching can see, as I yet it won't be any performance mods

    Yeah at the moment it's pure stock.

    Also yeah mate, my buddies and I already build V8 burnout cars. So all our stuffing around will be in them and also my VZ just blew up after a few burnouts so I have learnt my lesson. This car is purely for towing and the likes. Not to get to the speed limit in two seconds.

    Noticed the P plate. I thought the Thunders are over the KW limit for P platers?

    Yeah I know all about the little mods. Doing a slightly biggish one and will post it when it is done. You all might think its quite crap but I will love it.

    Yeap owned 4 manual cars, never an auto. And had an SV6 VZ, but this has a lot more grunt.

    As for P plate legal, I looked it up first.

    Do you like the gun metal gray rims, I'm not a big fan of them.

    Here's a photo of my VZ with the same wheels. [​IMG]
    I think the colour may actually be called charcoal.

    I love how they only have a few spokes. I hate more then 6, I love they are big and chunky, they are square. I love them. I'm a real lover of simple square thing. Hate chrome mags with thousands of spokes.

    Lol it's just an aesthetics mod. It's not actually that cool but I'm excited. I can't give away any little hints without giving away the whole thing. You'll have a laugh at it when it's done. I just need to start booking in everything to be done.

    Looks good champ , I like the red colour a lot , I reckon if those rims where more of a black it would suit it better

    I saw that colour the other day when I was going for a drive, it's really awesome.

    Good pick up mate, should serve you well.
