Hey guys, I've been browsing these forums for a while but never bothered to join up until now.
Anyway this is my new car, picked it up last week for $9,300 with 180,000km on the clock. Only had one owner and a full service history all signed off by holden.
Very happy with it so far, goes much better than my last ride which was a VT S1 acclaim in horrible condition and had just about every problem you could have with a car..so I'm pretty stoked about finally getting something decent!

Small update..

Took off the wing and tinted the lights today (only 1 coat, didn't wanna go too dark and this way I can always do another if I change my mind), will probably chuck the wing back on soonish, just wanna see how it looks without it for a while :) hence the holes are only covered with duct tape :p

Also the audio is booked in for this Thursday :D

pics aren't the best, need for it to stop raining so I can wash her and take some decent ones haha

Stereo is now installed :D all of it is gear from my last car apart from the head unit, which is a massive step up from old $50 Sony one, I love it. Would recommend to anyone, comes with RCA out x2, front aux in, front usb in and rear ipod connection.

I also managed to give it a wash and get some decent photos..

Edit: Pics moved to 1st post

Next up..exhaust

Thanks mate. I've decided to leave it off and thus ordered a 3rd LED brake light to replace to one that was on the spoiler..a steal at $7 with free shipping! I've also purchased a workshop manual which has come in handy already.

Other than that no updates unfortunately..the audio is all paid off as of yesterday so the exhaust should be done in a couple of weeks

hey mate, very very nice ride.
i love the no spoiler look, it makes it so clean.
by the way, instead of duct tapes to mask the holes you can buy little rubber grommet things that go in the holes.
they are from clark rubber and stuff, they are like 50 cents.

Oh yeah I forgot to mention that..I have the rubber grommets filling the holes now too. I sprayed them silver so they dont stand out so much..didnt turn out that great but better than black.
Also does anyone know where I can get the chrome number plate surround from the calais? No dice on eBay and a couple of other sites so I guess either buy it from holden or paint the existing one? Thoughts?

Where did you get it from if you don't mind me asking?

Nice car by the way, silvers a nice timeless colour in my opinion, will look even better once your future mods are completed :thumbsup:

Thanks mate. I got the brake light off ebay..
24 LED Car Red Third Brake Stop Tail Light Lamp 12V (eBay item 170542954021 end time 20-Nov-10 05:50:45 AEDST) : Cars, Bikes, Boats

I haven't got mine yet so I cant really comment on how it is..the only issue i can see is there not being enough wire included with the light, but that shouldnt be too hard to fix

Thanks again for the comments everyone :)
