    ya mum!
    Nice ride man! Gotta hate the light coloured headlinings thought. I guess that's what happens when they're based of the lux model (Calais). But it's a small price to pay for a HSV.

    Huge fan of that colour too.

    How do you personally find the Contis?

    I like it! Black wheels get my vote.

    Well done.

    LOL, Rajesh, hows penny treating you?! Was she good?!

    Whats Contis? Yeah man, the roof lining is a shame, when it goes in for the 3 monthly, I'll get some prices for them to do it, if its too steep will just source the parts at trade price locally and do it in my spare time - lol.. Which is almost never.

    Cheers MPC78, I like the idea of black rims too, but the dealer mentioned they were going to get them painted white and since hearing it thought it might be alright.. Would be a bitch to keep clean though.

    Ohh, hahaaa, Cheers Tasmaniak, I love it too! :D

    And the Conti's, are pretty awesome, sooo grippy. Not sure what they're worth, but they stick like glue.
    Pop the clutch out of a round about and the thing launches so hard, like it's on rails.. There IS a limit to their grip, like every tyre, but driving Grandma to church on Sundays you would never find it.

    Hahaa, cheers man, I'm a fan. And yep Turkey ;)

    No love for the Barina, it never gets any love. (a now ex's car)
    Poor things running a stocky on the front passenger side, think she hit a gutter or something, and half ripped the rear bumper off.. :/

    That's why she never drove this thing. Or the Senator..!

    Cheers mate, as long as you can overlook the shitty quality/poor lighting Iphone pics, and filthy dirty interior, Ok..! ;)

    Agree'd, as soon as I saw it in person it reminded me of "Panther Mica" the old VR/VS Calais colour, I used to love that colour at the time.

    ^^ Thats a Lambo I had the pleasure of 'driving' with on Sunday, I saw him come around a round about near home, so promptly turned around and followed him to the freeway.. :rofl2: I thought they were 'fast' like real fast? that or he wasnt fully up it..? :confused:

    ^^ In real life the suede is a much closer colour to the rest of the leather, (black) just the flash shows it up as grey for some reason?

    Will get better pics in the day light, but until then..

    Bit of an upgrade from your last rides ey Zeus. I can appreciate them, awesome motor, suspension and interior but I'd have to close my eyes until I was in the car lol. Good to see you back again ;)

    Cheers Ms Demon, good to be back! ;)

    Tell me about it! I've been driving a beat up old rodeo around for the last year then got sick of the oil leaks on my driveway and not being able to park on anyone else's driveways, so went and got a new toy.
    Funny thing is I fixed the oil leaks on the ute, and still drive that to work.. :/

    The Senator was nice, though this is more fun being a manual. :D


    Boys at work recon its a Mazda 6..

    Cheers for the honesty mate, realistically they aren't my pick of the bunch I wanted the charcoal rims I think they come on the R8's, or spec'd up models. But couldn't get genuine at the time..
    I figure painting them is just one way to try and lessen the 'impact' they have, lol..

    Eventually there will most likely be a set of 22" under the guards, one day.. lol


    All clean and detailed..

    got to agree, love the colour etc but those rims just don't suit it at all, maybe black would help?
