as juzza did with the VB/K and VL forum, i will make a sticky thread with FAQs about each model. i am asking for people to post as many common questions as they can think of so i can start this off.

you dont need to worry about posting a link to the question, just what it is and i can do the searching myself. i want to try and get as many as possible to try and help new and existing users.

thank you

A/C Switch

I have had a recurrent problem with melting the plastic covers on the A/C switch....the voltage going to the bulb must be too high....prolly caused by a burn't out "dropping" resistor some where in the circuit or the use of too high a wattage bulb for the holder!!!

Good idea...

Standard speaker sizes seem to be a common question...

A plain english explanation to common error codes would be helpful, although this would probably warrant a thread of it's own.

How low can I (legally) lower my car?

What are the biggest wheels I can (legally) fit?

Do I need a camber kit?

Missfire / Faulter at idol? (my own prob :) )

Basic performance; CAI, Exhaust, filters...

Basic servicing...

Key replacement / programming...

Just a few thoughts, hope it helps.

Cheers.

Oh, and I forgot the most important of all...

Where to buy a Gregory's?

Soo many questions and how to's can easily be answered by reading your very own workshop manual :)

perhaps some estimate time and part price. This is somthing that alot of people ask about basic work.........eg. springs, exhausts, wheels, paint. could be out of reach though!!
