    The car looks good mate, but don't try and tell people its a clubsport when its clearly just a V6 Calais with a bodykit.

    Yeah I wouldn't mind seeing some interior pics to how it turned out with the gauges.

    And just a 6 is it?

    (I'm not doing any sarcastic comments or anything so don't take it as I am, we've said our peace).

    Do what ever your happy to walk outside and admit to driving, but a V6 wanna-be HSV just doesnt cut it for me.
    Ride: Calais V/HSV, thats like calling my VY S an SS cause it shares to same bodykit and features.

    Throwing hsv badges on a non hsv car is the same as finding out the chick U just took home with a sweet rack has dangly bits.. Not nice for anyone involved. Dont try to re-brand something it isnt.

    Now, U got some specs to throw up yet?

    I don't consider myself part of "the pack" here at all, yet I still think it's try-hard that the OP is trying to make his car look like something it's not, and I'm entitled to say something if he posts it up on a public forum.... just like he's entitled to do whatever he wants to his car.

    It's all good, I don't know why people get so worked up...

    Well it's dropped from 100+ comments to 40 now..least some has cleaned up. But needs more.

    Everyone has said there opinion (including myself), and obviously he doesn't care. So let him do what he wants and everyone just enjoy the forum.

    Send me a message hsv-cv. I wouldn't mind knowing a bit more about it.
