Na mate just black - i don't know why the silver part looks so chromy...must be the lighting i guess

I'm sure you would of only being in castle hill

Make sure to beep next time you do :thumbsup:


VZnewbie - the exhaust was $200, it's the exhaust from v8 twin tip, Just chopped and welded from the cat back onto the stock exhaust. Sounds beefy :)

how does your car ride with 3" in the rear?

Rides sweet man, no scrubbage - although i had to get the guards rolled

I wouldn't mind going another inch lower, Still sits at a legal height too :thumbsup:

Handles well. I've got a mate who lowered his VX on 19's 1.5" both ends, and his is no less of a bumpy ride.

Loving the car, and all the mods.

But I am not agreeing at all with the Baby Blue paint idea...
Black would go amazing with the wheels.
Or even keep it as is.

But please not baby blue!:bang:
BTW, nice car :thumbsup:

It's not the full exhaust system, It's the end of a 3" catback twin tip exhaust. Works out much cheaper and easier to install - It's not as loud as a full exhaust but the growl is deeper and absolutely no drone. ;)

Take a look at the number plate - I'm in NSW - my car is completely P plate and street legal

Well almost :whistling
