    Thats what mine looked like when I got it 11 years ago and my told me I wasn't to touch or spend any money on it.
    Fog lights are a good body mod.

    Would just adding the Bezels look ok?
    Or would I look like a dick with no lamps?
    Leave them black be ok?
    Or should colour code them?
    Help me make up my mine.
    I`m going to put Calias grills on too.

    I think I saw some foggies for a VR-VS on eBay this week.
    Have seen a few cars running calais and SS bars without the lights but lights would look better.
    Any rectangle fog light would be ok to mount behind the bar.

    Thanks mate.
    The exhaust sounds pretty good for a v6.
    I drove pass a bloke from work he was walking and he has an v8.
    He said it sounded good.

    Nice wagon. Good to see someone else being different. They look great stock or with any kit bcoz they're not trying to look like something else, they're just lookin different.

    I'm loving your wagon mate. I reckon if you can track down some driving lights to put in the bezels it would look better than the mesh. I was going to do the same but ended not bothering. I just installed some aftermarket ones and installed them in the main scoop part of the bar (see My Ride if interested).

    Was the reversing sensors hard to install and what brand is it?
