hello guys

i have come across a nice s ute vu which i am thinking about buying for a good price, has hard lid and its quite nice, anyone out there can tell me anything about them, fuel economy? what they drive like, havent driven it yet, any pics with vu s would be cool, im gonna pimp it up, so basically looks same as ss without the fuel bill i guess, any info would be appreciated

thanks for ur time

VU Storm
I dunno what the s pack is like but if you can find a nice storm they are an ss with the 6. Its got all the basic options and they are sweet to drive

VU S2 Ute - 5 sp manual
Djvsa, I have a 02 Vu S ute. It's the same as driving a Vt - Vx sedan wagon, Their better on fuel if you have a hard cover, I have been getting 650 to 700kms to a tank (highway driving) I'll put some pixs up soon

Djvsa, the monaro bonnet was $600 incl postage off ebay.

The vk man, I've got enought clearance to put my yzf 750 with out it scrubing out and the front you would be lucky to get your hand between the top of the tyre and the gard
