    2016 VF SSVR
    Finally got to pick it up on Thursday, and the 3 month wait was worth it.
    MY16 SSV Redline, Manual.

    So far the car is pretty much stock. Window tint happening next weekend, coil overs hopefully in a few weeks time.
    Wheels are Koya SF06, 20x9 (35offet) Front and 20x10 Rear (42 offset) with Nitto Invo tyres, 255/35 Front and 275/35 Rear.
    The only other thing I've changed on the car so far has been the exhaust. I fitted the headers, cats and floor section off a 340kw R8 to the car, while keeping the Redlines factory bimodal. While it didn't make the car much louder, it's made it much deeper and throatier.
    HSV on the left, standard on the right.

    Love the car how it is, so don't really plan on doing much to it, just want to enjoy it.
    Currently the plans for it are tint, lowered, then eventually OTR and tune, and tidy up the engine bay a little.
    It's going to be a shame to see the last one roll off the production line, they really are a very nice car.

    cool, thanks for the pics. I have the same planned exhaust wise for my VFII SSVR although I just have the HSV Headers and Cats. If its not worth it, I wont worry about a HSV centre section

    Great looking car mate! This will look so spot on when ya get the tints and coilovers done!! Congrats man!

    That exhaust looks so much better too. Where did you pick the floor section up from?

    Super coach, the hsv headers and cats should bolt upto the factory catback, but, the factory set up has both O2 sensors in the header/cat assembly. The hsv headers only have the upstream O2, so you'll need someone to weld bungs into the standard catback so you can run the rear O2s.

    Thanks mate, hoping the coilovers and tint will top it off just right.
    I got the entire exhaust off eBay a few months ago, paid $400 for an entire system and gave the rear mufflers to a mate.

    Oh no worries, that's a good pick up for that price!

    Have you pressed the horn yet? I'd upgrade that first.

    Looks really good mate, not normally a fan of the Slipstream Blue but it suits those wheels well. Good sizes and offsets to.

    Any chance you'd be able to post up a vid of the HSV exhaust? I've driven a few of the VFII V8s at work and whilst the bi-modal sounds good inside the car it sounds pretty crap outside of it.

    Haven't tried the horn, and tbh don't really care, hardly ever find myself using it.

    I'll try and get a video of the exhaust over the weekend. I pulled the relay last night for the bimodal, so good haha

    Hey thanks for that advice mate, if that's the case, then it might be worth just getting the centre section then.

    Enjoying it for sure. But maybe enjoying it a little to much I think, didn't get many kms out of the first tank haha.

    Itching for the window tint and coilovers!

    Had the windows tinted today, very glad to have this done.
    [​IMG]

    Couldn't help myself the other night, the temptation to swing past VCM just got to me, and this happened.

    [​IMG]

    The fit, finish and quality of their new OTRs is fantastic, very impressed. I had issues with their original design, which in the end resulted in me buying the Harrop OTR for my previous car.
    But the new VCM unit is a very nice bit of kit! So thumbs up to them.

    Hopefully have the coil overs fitted to the car in 2 weeks, the 4x4 look is embarrassing and ruining the car.
    Before selling my old car I fitted the new wheels to it, to check clearance and see how they worked with the height, and I'm very keen to get the VF lowered.

    Planning on a similar height with the new car, so it should look pretty good, I'm hoping.

    It's going to look perfect! Go half an inch lower than the VE

    Thanks guys.
    I think I'm going to be somewhat limited with how low I can go though. Definitely have to get the guards rolled, but because I'm running the HSV size tyres and bit of an aggressive offset, I don't want to scrub. So I'm happy to compromise on height and not have to worry about scrub, scrape and speed bumps haha.
    I actually like the chrome on the S2, especially on this colour. So I don't think I'll be adding any of the black out trims. That being said, if the car was red or white, probably a diferent story haha. Mum has a Redline on the way, should be here shortly, we're adding some black out trims to that. Going to be a good looking garage haha.

    I think the chrome suits this colour really well. I have seen some slipstreams with blackout and it doesn't look quite right to my eye.

    Looking good mate. Have been considering the tint and seeing your slipstream with it has convinced me. They do sit way to high and you're so right it "spoils" the look. These two things are most definitely next on my list. Liking the contrast of the red brembos against the blue also. OMG the list is endless. I do like the black vent and DRL trim on mine though.

    I'm hoping to find out this week if the coilovers are in stock, apparently they've been held up in customs. But can't wait to drop it a bit!
    I'm liking the red brakes and the other bits of red around the car, however I'm contemplating getting yellow 6/4 brembos, and doing a bit of an engine bay dress up at the same time.
    Apart from that, I want to add some high flow cats to the HSV headers, or I'll just buy a set of the harrop/HM headers 4-1s to bolt upto the HSV 2.5" catback.

    As much as I want to do a few things to the car, I don't want to get to carried away as I'm planning on selling the car next year haha. Only put 850kms on it so far, but planning the next one.
