    Hey guys,

    My names Troy I'm a 17yo commodore lover from Vic. Just thought I'd google my car and i found this website. Thought you guys might like another member so here we are.

    I drive a "Holden Red" 1988 VL Executive.

    Modifications so far:
    Exhaust: 3" polished no muffler and extractors.
    Engine: K&N Performance filter.
    Interior/System: (not installed yet) 200w 6x9s(back) 200w (front) + tweeters. VDO deck.
    Exterior: VN Calais mags for now. De badged.

    Coming soon: Mesh front grille, New Rims (looking to buy), lowered 2" all round(recommend anything?)

    I have been told my VL was one of the last to be produced.

    I'd love to hear any comments you guys might have as well as tips for a VL owner.


    Some Pics: THESE ARE ALL VERY OLD NEW ONES SOON.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    cant see any pics, also 3'' is a bit to big for a N/A vl it must be slugish down low. 2.1/2 - 2.1/4 is normally the way to go.

    I agree

    Anyway nice lookin vl mate, interior an paint look clean,
    If I were u I wouldn't go a calais mesh grill they look terrible on a sl/berlina front
    If your lowering it kingspring superlows are a nice low hight;) an best u buy an adj pan hard rod an have your gaurds rolled as they will scrape your wheels over little bumps when u have passengers in the back.

    but that's just my thoughts

    Good luck with it mate

    Thought i'd put a nice shot of the back up.

    Superlow King Springs are on Ebay for about $250 - $300. is that a decent price?

    Oh and if i bought the springs and took them into a shop would they put them in for me? or would i have to buy the springs and labour at the shop? if i had to buy both at the shop what kind of price would i be looking at?

    thanks guys.
