Hey guys an girls.. This is my standard vy exec i got about 3 months ago. Engines all pretty stock standard. Only thing done is the kit, rims and lowered.

As you can see it's got 2 diff sets of rims in photos. The 20" gts (i think they are) were on it when I bought it but got stolen bout 2 weeks after I got it. Put the 18" xhp's on it after that. Haven't had much time to spend on it yet as it's been a busy 2 months but I've sprayed the inside console in a gloss black and got a black head unit into it.

The front end on it had some scrapes and and hale damage. But an aust post guy dropped his bike on the front end bout 2 months ago so I got a new front bar and bonnet out of that. Unfortunately got hit up the rear end just before christmas also, not much damage but has put stress fractures through the whole rear bar and put a 10/15cm crack in it. Not happy as she doesn't have insurance :(

Wouldn't mind getting black leather seats put into it. New exhaust system and couple of smaller engine mods to give it a bit more power. But will have to put them on hold for a few months yet. Overall very happy with the purchase and the way it drives. Very smooth car and enjoyable.

Cool I like the VZ flutes on the front sides. Rear bumper wont set you back that much, like $300 new.

Mines got scratches and **** but eh its my daily too so it doesnt need to be that perfect, only for some cnt to trolley it.

I'm on the lookout for a leather interior too :).

cheers.. Yeah been in qld for the last week or so so will start looking for a new one next week. Also been having over heating issues, replaced the thermostat in it last night. Seems to have done the trick, usually sits half way between the qtr line and half, once or twice in traffic it went to just above half, fans kicked in and went back down to wear it was. Is that about normal for a commodore?

they were on it when i bought it. She had them on there just for the looks. And i actually don't mind the look of them myself. Plus it's a amusing when ppl are doen 120 and they get up to just behind me car an hit the breaks and won't over take. Less traffic infront of me on the roads ;-)

If you have comprehensive insurance, you can claim on the other driver if they were at fault, as appears to be the case here, and your excess and no claim bonus should not be affected. They fix your car and chase the other driver for the excess. If she doesn't have any insurance, then stiff ched for her. Your company will still pursue the excess even if she has to pay for it from her own pocket.
