Right, I've deleted 161 posts of utter childish bull ****. Grow up, everyone. Minux gave you all a chance and no one listed so here is the final straw. Next person who I deem to be out of line is banned for a week. No ifs or buts.. you're gone. I don't care who you are. This stops here. I'll be keeping a close eye on this thread too.

Sorry for all the people who posted positive comments but I really couldn't be bothered going through everything and reviewing or editing stuff.

I'm curious how did you do the rear lights cause the original ones make up the topmost rear corner, whereas the HSV ones are lower down?

Couple of extra pictures that got deleted:





Basically in regards to the HSV lights, the HSV unit has a plastic cap that attaches to the top of the light, to form one piece, then this whole piece is bolted in place of the light.

Any vehicle aside from a Calais requires extensive modifications as to where the bumper mounts to the car, to actually create the extra space needed for the HSV lights.

So Omega, SV6, SS, SSV are all very difficult. Calais and Berlina it's almost plug and play.

The only problem anyone would run into aside from that is either buying the $1000 LED control module, or figuring out a way to bypass it.

Woah weird Deja Vu thread :D
I must say that the Black is really growing on me though.

So your saying that to run the E2 DRL's you need a $1000 module :hmmm:?! that is just straight up robbery. I can't see why you would ever need a $1000 module to run an LED Strip of a 12v battery.
I mean just grab some resistors and plug into the battery. Must LEDs Strips are already made in such a way that they naturally run of 12v. That is some weird ****, its probably just Holden robbing their customers again.

Nah, haha, the LED tail lights require a module. The E2 DRL's are just straight plug and play, I've got a switch installed in the centre cubby for them, they turn on with ignition though.

But an idea of the costs, the DRL's are $1300 for the pair, and that's discounted. $500 alone for the chrome bonnet strip as well.

HSV like to be thieves.

HOLY **** BALLS!!!!!!

They be robbing you bro!

The whole $1000 Module for LED tail lights sounds like complete bs aswel, considering they run from 12v also so I cannot see why you would need a freaking $1000 module.
As for the $1300 DRL's, holy jebus! I know the LED'S are big but they wouldn't cost more than $50 per LED! $500 for a chrome strip WTF!
They be like super ninja thieves.
Oh and btw how are you getting all these parts if you don't actually own an HSV? You been going around stealing everyones VIN Numbers :D.
