    as for the grunt side of things how much power are you after..

    you should definitely start off with the typical mods..
    2 1/2 inch exhaust with extractors
    cold air intake
    good plugs and leads
    etc.

    One way to tell if it's series 2 is if it has clear rear taillight indicators. series one had orange, series two had clear. an exhaust can definately help with the power side of things. nice car mate.

    Its been almost a year since i have updated this thread. Havent done anything new to my car and I have decided not to do any more as I am now saving to purchase my next car which I'm aiming to get around june next year. Ill be off my p's by that stage so I am thinkin about getting a VX SS, VT SS, VS Clubbie or a VS Stato/caprice.

    Here is a link to see all my good pics of my car.

    Yeah I got off the vq thought. Hmm I think I just keep saving my penny's and see where I am in a couple months. Im planning on getting a zorst in the next few weeks, so that will keep me happy for while. Then i'll add 2 more cylinders. :dance:

    Love your car mate! :thumbsup:

    Hows work going? Worked 2days so far this week, and done overtime both days. Over that. Oh well I qualify in march so yay pay rise:w00t:

    I work at bakers delight in lilydale. and sometimes my bosses other store kilsyth.

    I did coolant last Thursday in mine and new front tyres Friday. Im looking at gettin an exhaust done in a couple weeks, then pads, plugs and leads after that. Then I can start saving for its replacment.

    edit: also did 25 minutes overtime again today.

    Yeah exhaust i gota do mine hardcore... when i picke dup my rig when i bought her, it jsut got the whole exhuast replaced, so my dad is like "no ned to change it until its dead, its brand new" which is fair point. As soon as Xmas is over, exhaust n extractors and new wheels for EasterNats.
