    Nice.

    306 rwkw is good going.

    What have you done about the holes for the original rear wing? I do like the look without a wing...

    Hi Guys, thanks for the nice comments.
    The rear spoiler has only been off for about 2 months and the holes are just tacked up with hole fillers. That cars black and so are the fillers so no one can see them. My mates a panel beater and spray painter when he has a spare mintue he is going to weld the holes and re-spray, which will hopefully be my new colour for the whole car! ;-)

    The 2.5" exhuast isn't too bad, loud enough when im crusing but when I open her up either on the highway or 1/4mile she is awesome! (but im Bias! ;-)) it can be a tiny bit droany around town but it has improved with the cam would you beleive. On the highway its fine tho.
    I'm not sure what its going to be like with the 3" plus the 4in1's and hiflo cats I might get the boys to keep my 2.5" just incase I want to swap it back hehe???

    Cheers, Bronnie.

    Yup It's a chick alright! LOL Nice to meet you Kikki. Love your ride, I couldn't decide between the SSV Wagon or the Sedan... Obviously I ended up wit the sedan but man it was a hard choice... I love my V8, thus the number plates HER-LUV will never ever go back... so much fun down the 1/4 mile... Thanks for the comment... :)

    I swear I've seen you around somewhere recently the plates look familiar, looks cool without the rear wing not that I'm biased or anything :D

    Selling - 19" VE SSV Genuine Holden Rims

    I've now got to sell my SSV Rims on my car to pay for my new rims...
    $2,000 for the set complete with next to new tyres. - ONO
    Unfortunately the rear drivers side has a gutter dash thanks to the sorrento ferry.. grrr and the front passenger rim as a tiny scratch thanks to a mate dropping the rim at Heathcote while change from my street slicks.

    Please ask around because I really want to get my new set ASAP!

    Cheers Guys and Girlies
    Bronnie.

    I'll keep an ear out for you.

    Can you trade your factory rims at the place you're buying the new ones? What wheels are you getting?

    Welcome Bronnie, very nice machine you have there. Well done. In regards to the rims/tyres, be careful not to ask too much for them, especially when they're marked and you want them gone ASAP. I recently picked up a spare set of SSV rims/tyres with dealer delivery kms for $1100 (unmarked). There's heaps of sets around on the market asking for around $1200-$1500. Just a heads up.

    Thank you so much wikky for the heads up it is very much apprciated. I didn't have a value in my head so I thought if I start with one figure I'm sure someone will let me know if it was too high :)

    Davey G-force I'm getting the Advanti Tourer - 20" x 8.5 I was thinking 22" but man if I hit a pot hole I'm screwed plus I still want to keep her looking kind of a sleeper... LOL

    Thanks for the lovely comments guys. Cheers

    Not a hassle at all.

    What are the specs of your cam? (if you know and don't mind sharing)
