    Hey guys, thought it was about time I posted pics of my car.

    Basically got it in October '09 for a good price with low KM, and was also absolutely immaculate. It's my second car... had a VS Berlina before this.
    It's driven me to Melbourne, the river, Pt. Lincoln, Tasmania, and other places many times without fail. Great car.

    Year: October '03 VYII Berlina
    Colour: Quicksilver
    Motor: 3.6 ECOTEC
    Trans: 4 speed auto
    KM when bought: 40,000
    KM now: 125,000
    Price paid: $13,000
    Interior conditon: As new, perfect
    Exterior conditon: Excellent. One small ding on side.

    Interior mods:
    - Pioneer double din DVD headunit, Orion speakers all round, pioneer subwoofer in the boot. Professionally installed.
    - Silver spokes on steering wheel (not in pics).
    - Carpet on the inside of the boot lid
    - Darkest legal tint
    Thats about it.. not much lol.

    Exterior mods:
    - Front lip spoiler
    - VZ Calais wheels
    - VYII Calais front grille and chrome garnish
    - VZ Calais rear lights

    I also chucked FE1.5 suspension in it from a VYII Calais. Handles well, maybe not as low as I would've liked it but not rough as guts like FE2.

    So thats about it. Has been my baby for 1 and a half years, I love it... but I won't be doing any more mods for it as it will soon be going (got myself a VE Calais V).

    Cheers.

    Thanks mate, yeah I do love it. The front lip adds heaps onto the front end of the car, I see berlinas and series 1 Calais' without it now and just reckon it looks average. I also reckon the larger grille and garnish gives it a better look.

    Cheers
