    Name: Nic
    Model: 2002 VY Commodore SS S1
    Color: Hothouse Green
    ODO: 238 xxx
    Transmision: Manual

    I pick this beast up tomorro afternoon and couldn't wait to start a thread (lol), i've got so many plans already, like with audio i plan on upgradeing and going louder for SPL comps so the first few months il be doing all that stuff.
    The only mods it has is aftermarket alarm and Mantis 2.5" exhaust.

    I know its got high k's and that but its a bush car :p il have fun cleaning the bast**d :eek:. The interior looks clean.
    I've got all the paperwork on whats been done etc, so the brakes and clutch and gearbox and that is only a couple years old.

    So I guess il update this post with mods and future mods every now and then.

    so here are some pictures when it was at the mechanic.

    P.S. this is going to be pic heavy because my quota is full and i can't add attachments.

    Should've bought a SS wagon if you were serious about SPL, Please don't destroy this like you did with your S.

    Cheers

    PS remove the bonnet protector

    I'm not sure, yeah i definitely will and the headlight protectors.

    EDIT: when i looked under it i remember seeing a resonator and hotdogs in the middle, it's not loud at all but it sounds nice, red as anything though with gravel+dust yeah i think its going to take longer than that.

    funny, i'm sure its just dust on the roof, as for plans wheels and suspension will be getting swapped from the Spack, thinking about OTR and MAFLESS later on down the track.
