    Had it for about 21 months now, done nothing to her so far as I haven't wanted to draw unnecessary attention to it for the moment.

    Other than getting Teppa to tint the windows substantially darker, I'm still unsure if I really want to splash cash on its internals.

    It hasn't even sagged yet, anyway this is why not.

    #1 illegal (if you get defected you are most likely going to have to change a lot of other little things to get it back onto the road ~ happened to my other mate and was off the road for about 6 months fixing everything)
    #2 scrapes everywhere even on small speed bumps
    #3 has to go really slow over bumps and ****
    #4 less comfort
    #5 tyre is about 5cm away from hitting the inside of the guard. (this one has 17" wheels though.)
    #6 by the looks of things will need to get guards rolled (more money)
    #7 Camber, affects the way the car handles.

    The only good thing about it, is it looks good.

    Just my opinion, not worth it.

    VY Clubsport '02
    Hey guys! Been lurking across the forum ever since I first got my license. Three years has passed since, and I suppose it's time I post some pictures of my new ride.

    Some information:
    VY Clubsport '02.
    6 Speed manual.
    Sony Xplod Speakers + Splitters & Headunit.
    X-Force mild steel 2.5inch cat-back system.
    VCMSuite OTR
    Mafless tune (unsure of the power output however. Didn't recieve printout.)
    Bloke rekons she was pushing nearby 300kw, though I'm not 100% sure myself.
    All new disc brakes.
    Lowered suspension, unsure of what springs it sits on, haven't really look at them. Sits and rides nice however, disregard the 245/30's.

    To do's:
    Fix the passenger door locking mechanism as it has packed up.
    Replace the aerial, as it does the commondore fault of getting stuck and doing some nasty clicking sounds.
    As of last night, replaced the battery which seems to have fixed the ABS fault for now, which has cleared up the traction control.
    Get rid of these C Custom plates done in red... on a black/white car. Going to switch them for some standard white and black ones.

    2003 VY Clubsport Series II

    Hi all :)

    Just picked up my 10/2003 clubby. It's the series II - so it makes 285KW and has the 48mm headers and 2.5" dual exhaust. It's in mint condition and has just had a reco gearbox and new tyres fitted courtesy of the dealer due to the issues they had. Stoked! It goes bloody quick too...

    2003 VY Phantom Black SV8

    Hey guys, thought I would post up mine.

    Its a 2003 VY SV8. I know it's the poor man's SS haha but I really enjoy it and got it at a good price. Plus it's a 6 speed!

    It came with the Clubsport front bumper on it, Genie 2.5" catback and some shocking looking 18inch "chromies". I added the following mods:

    - Advanti 20" Siren Blacks with 245/30r20 Achilles tyres
    - Pacemaker Tri-Y's
    - 200cpi cats
    - OTR intake
    - MAFless tune

    Its making 240kw at the rear wheels.

    It is in DESPERATE need of being lower because the 20's stand out like dogs balls and need to be tucked a bit.

    Speaking of lowering... Here it is done. Dobinsons coils and Munroe shocks.
