    Recently got this Omega, im also new to these forums so hello to everyone.
    just interested in some general ideas of what to put onto it to do it up a bit to get me started and into a flow of putting my own flair into it.

    thanks in advance!

    G'day Ace,

    Huge amount of options for the VEs - all depends on what you want, what you want it to do and how much you want to spend on it as to which avenue you take. The sky's the limit - so to speak.

    Tinted windows is probably the first thing I would recommend, maybe lower it a bit and to be honest I would probably keep the outside like that!! As "TinSnips" said, there is heaps of options available for the VE!

    I would agree with hwy747 tint the windows then probably lower it.. Other than that i think those rims look pretty sweet,

    dump it, tint it, stinger aerial, new mufflers, i'm all for debadging. i've debadged my tailgate of the ute as i reckon it looks magnificent without it. too much crap about. nice clean black tailagate.

    thanks

    yeah got a few ideas now i actually got to pick it up today and i am absolutely loving it, put seatcovers and floor mats in, sadly couldnt find any HSV seat covers and it was getting late everything closing but as soon as im out and see some ill be grabbing them :)

    on the subject of Debadging, thats taking the actual Holden pride lion badge off isnt it :O i dont think i could do that :p

    im looking at Subwoofers already that sits nicely in the boot towards the drop down "tray and drink holder" that u can access in the back seat would be absolutely great and concealed.

    window tinting incoming and i was thinking if i should go for the nice dark plain tinting or go for a 'colour' one?

    Just go dark - Mine's 15% (shh.. don't tell) and I'm happy with it.

    I'm with you.. keep the lion proud and silver!

    Before investing in the sub, have a flick through some other posts - if you're only adding the sub, it'll sound crap. Better yet, speak to a pro installer - They'll be able to suggest something to fit your budget - Subs are the last step to a good sound in my opinion.

    Why settle for seat covers when you can have HSV seats and door trims for a bit over 3 grand! lol Comfy!

    debadging = just the wuts on the boot, not the actual holden emblem
