    1st post & couldn't find a forum to introduce myself :) Mikey

    up until the last hailstorm we had in NSW penrith, i owned a chery j11 cough cough, i know, give it to me

    17 hail dents later, 2 major ones, saw NRMA say it's gone, thank gawd :)

    so after little discussion with the better 1/2 ( little meaning she wanted it just as much as me ) this is what we got

    so happy now, only had it a week and love it.

    in any case, glad to have joined up to this forum, read many posts already and hope to contribute where i can.

    previously owned a 72 4 door monaro & an LC GTR, both sold so long ago, wish i kept them as we all say

    ps: if any one can tell me what brand of wheels i have, would be greatfull sv6-3.jpg sv6-1.jpg

    we all joked about the chery when i got it, but truth be known it was great for 20,000 ks then started the ongoing issues over a year, so the hail storm was a welcome thing

    so, who can tell me the brand of those wheels, it has a off centre star logo with HP or something, but google images etc won't find anything

    i thought they looked like Virouge

    will definitely be doing some mods, but only had it for a week now. over the next few weeks, will be putting it into my mates auto shop to totally check it out and offer me some advise on what's worth doing
