    Sweet VP SS. I recognize the background scenery lol. Reminds me of the pre-GTS days, looking at the GTS. So I see you decided to keep the rear resi on? How does she go, estimated 0-100? Oh and I believe the colour isnt actually black, its Anthracite Grey.

    When people offer a ridiculous amount of money **** happens :D

    Nah it's never been hit. The car sat around for nearly 2 years out the back of a factory in Nunawading and it got pinched. Unless I find one (they seem to be as rare as hens) a glass GTS bar is looking the go.

    No need to remove it. It sounds great as it is and goes very well so why call attention to myself? Yeah I know it's grey but who cares? I edited the color just for you.

    I'm not happy with the ride height and the pics make it look better than what it is. Probably needs to be a tad lower. Anybody know what HSV did to the GTS's? That was quite a bit lower and handled like a go-cart.
