my mates got a vp ss thats had a little bit of work done to it apparently "7 grand"

anyway, hes offerin 5 grand for it, is this an alright deal, im not sure on the prices for vp's

hes a dodgy guy so maybe if its too cheap theres somethin up.

ohh ok, cheers for that
you driven a vp 5ltr or a 5ltr similar?
it says that they are 165kw or somethin on redbook and my vt is 142ish kw which is a v6, and i thought to myself that its not that much difference in power..
or is it very noticable comparison when driven?

HSV ENHANCED VP CALAIS
the power curve is totally different, 304 will have a lot more power down low. plus it's not hard to get that 165kw up to at least 190kw with a couple of cheap mods.

my advice - don't buy a car without reg/roadworthy. that's what i did, thought it was awesome getting a hsv enhanced calais for $4500, then had to put in almost $1500 for a roadworthy. never saw that one coming.

5000 is an average price for a vp ss these days.

i bought my car without rego/roady. if theres anything wrong with it, and can do work yourself, its not that big of a deal unless its something major.

5 grand is a normal price for a VP SS, not cheap not dear, just about right and like the other guys said a few hundred spent on a stocker makes them muuuuch faster than a VT V6
