Well the boots are identicle, its the garnish on them. The piece around the licence plate is the same shape as the piece on the VT give or take, so you can take it off and replace it with one off a VX like in the pic or the nicer boot garnish like whats on VX Calais and the like.

Some people i know have said they like the look of the VT garnish just properly painted in the colour of the car. Its really a case of personal choice.

There nothing wrong with original vt garnish and what not but i do like the painted garnish much more than the red plastic.

i've seen a standard VT garnish painted on a few VT's.

On one the whole thing was painted including the reverse lamps (with monaro lights fitted). You could still see the "shape" of the reverse lamps as the VT granishes are not perfectly flat like the VX ones.

On another they had masked the reverse lamps but painted the rest of it.

I know it's personal choice, and some people don't want to give up the boot-lid keyhole (which the VX don't have), but IMO either of the above looks really cheap and nasty!

If you want a painted garnish PLEASE get a VX one and paint that, they look so much better!
