Hahaha yea, sorry forgot to mention that. Yes the badges are gold, idk some people love them some people hate them - me i love them. Like all you see is black and chrome wanted it to be a bit different.
And yea i love the tail lights as well dzach ;). They were chrome when i bought them but i bought some of that tail light tint paint, i haven't had any problems with them as i haven't painted the reflectors only the outside stuff.
GOT some new pics (washed it last night first heheh)

Need to take some pics during the day light but i went and put a bonnet scoop on it - reason, mostly cuss i was bored but also cuss Holden gave me this shits with the price of there manaro bonnets and i didnt feel like getting an ilegal fiberglass bonnet.
Its a funny thing, i like it but its split my friends 50/50 so will be interesting to see what people say.

Got my 4.11 diff, kicker splits, 12" sub, 20" wheels, different tail-lights, monaro style black head lights, (just bought a new bonet, liked my bonet scoop but....i like the smooth look more)
Got a heavy dutty cluch kit put in, however i still find if i have reved the car hard that my rev's dont drop somtimes....anyone have any ideas to what i need to do as it can be rather anoying!!


Eddit: will put a pick of my car with the bonet scoop on and will put some more picks on over the weeked with new bonet after i give her a clean!
