    This is my first car, it's a red VX Series1 ex-Police model.

    Engine: 3.8 litre Ecotec V6
    Transmission: 4 Speed slushmatic
    Suspension: FE2 (Sporty :p)
    Diff: LSD 3.08:1
    Wheels: 17" VT XU6
    Stereo: Stock headunit with some decent aftermarket speakers in it, sounds good.

    Extra Features:

    - Police interior lights isolation switch, centre console light (I put this in) and engine bay light (also me)
    - Reading lights in the main interior light (executive didnt have this),
    - Police calibrated speedo with 2km/h marked increments and digital speedo enabled by default.
    - Sump bashplate and Chaser spare wheel :D.
    - Also it has a police horn, sounds tough.

    Future Mods:
    - Maybe some VT HSV XU6 wheels?
    - Plenum spacer
    - New Exhaust (probably best for when its a manual)
    - New Radio/Cd Player

    Its pretty stock, and its done 160 thousand k's.

    Sounds like a good idea, would it be easier to paint them or remove them entirely? How did yours go?

    Also got a new Alpine CDA-105e Headunit and some alpine type G's for the front and some pioneer coaxials for the back.
    Sorry about the terribleness of this photo but you get the idea.

    Thanks for the comments.
    Yeh I've considered lowering it, but I'm actually quite happy with how it sits now.
    I've been thinking about having it's windows tinted, what do you guys think?

    45%? is that even tinted? legal is 35% and then we have 6% which isn't exactly legal but I wouldn't know anything about that.
