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

Power steering shudder at low speeds and the diff clunking would have to be two of the most seen questions i've seen asked about the vy.

Will the Steering wheel controls work with an aftermarket Unit?
What output size is the stock speakers?
Does it have AUX input / (How To)



others such as:
Converting a VY to Gas / Dual Fuel?
Will VZ headlights fit on a VY?
Instrument clusters / Converting from 1 window to 3 window display?
questions about foglights on an executive
How to reset service reminder?

No the factory CD player is not MP3 compatible, does not have RCA inputs, no the steering wheel controls will not work for an after market deck unless u get a deck that has a remote (non infared) that u can wire up into it? but not sure...
the stock speakers are only about 40 watts RMS if i remeber correctly, and there is no AUX input.

Read the first post mate. We're not asking for answers to these questions! :rofl:

Another couple of common ones are:

- Differences between Series 1 and Series 2
- Will VY SS bumper fit on other VY's (how-to)
- How to put other SS bits on other VY's
- Blue LED dash conversion
- Are ex-cop cars different to normal VY's or how to activate/de-activate cop options
- Performance mods for LS1's
- Performance mods for V6's
- Suspension - FE2/aftermarket

Just saw another thread which reminded me of a couple more common ones:

- How to clear/reset the service reminder

- How to activate the extra (hidden) functions on the computer (Mode+Set etc...)

Do i need a camber kit if i lower my vy is quite a common one..
Yes! Very common question - nice one juzsvy.

I spose along the same lines would be: Do VY's already have camber adjustment from factory?

(A definitive answer to these would also be nice! ;))
