    Thanks guys... I didnt want the latest "hero" colour as it seems to age to quickly.. like when you see a hothouse green vy ss, or a tiger mica vt ss...
    Dont get me wrong i like those colours ( i owned a tiger vt ss )..
    But when you see a black/silver/white or red ss it still looks good :)

    Other future mods apart from stereo and suspension are still undecided...

    I need more cash :b:

    Eeeeek, Hisssss SS Inductions! Nice car still besides that. Did they do the SSZ in a LS2? My brother just placed his order for a white SSZ ute with the blue interior, delivery set for early January.

    Keep up the good work.

    sounds like he will be very happy with his ute.. no you cant get the LS2 :( otherwise i would have..
    Whats wrong with ss inductions?
    My car goes heaps better with with the big mouth set up since i got it done...

    I know they had some average cai's in the past but this VZ setup has had good write ups.

    Yeah I've heard bad things, haven't seen anything about their new stuff though so let's hope they have sorted it all out. She's a beautiful car, I always did like the silver.

    Question though, what is this Turismo colour? I haven't seen this before.

    Nah don't watch regular TV much. So it's like the light blue they did for the VZ SS then, cool.

    Love baby blue it's like tiger mica lack of lasting appeal. My boss has 15,000 kms on his VY clubsport and already has a rear main oil leak without ever going over 4,000rpm. No thanks I'll pass.

    LMAO you actually fitted an SS induction? dude these things reduce power..


    Secondly
    Dont you feel ripped off? I mean, buying an SSZ only to find out Series 2 VZ is the same as a SSZ except with a L76 DoD 6.0, i know i'd feel shafted.

    Very cool ride mate love the seats....... loooooove them! I bet she has a nice grunty puurrr now with the exhaust I like the new blue, kind of looks like Extra chewing gum packet peppermint flavour! silver looks awesome with dark tint and alloys :w00t:
    Don't worry about negative comments their just jealous :D

    There will be no Series 2 VZ call it that if you wish... no i dont feel ripped off as i got 6 grand worth of extras with mine.. that the 6.0l wont have... dod who cares.. why buy a V8 if you are worried about fuel consumption..
    And finally i have had my car dynoed and gained 14 kw with the cai i got before my extractors and exhaust were fitted which then gained another 10kw with that so total is ( i got on paper ) 274kw....
    So i dont care about the 264kw 6.0l..... which will weigh about 80-100kilos more :)

    Finally Yes the ss inductions setup for a VT-VX is substandard but the new growler big mouth for the VZ is far superior...



    Thanks mate i love the seats also and it sounds awesome with my setup (sounds like its stroked :) and i guess you are right... Jealous :)

    I just got my first look at the SSZ ute, my brother has ordered a white one due early January. They don't look half bad although I wish they had used the aero top off the Sportster. Personally I still think a sedan is nicer than a ute but he digs them.

    Nice figures there champ that's pretty tidy indeed. What was it standard?
