time to upgrade from the trusty, little worse for wear VT. i have 2 options at the moment. a red supercharged calais with 92,000 red leather interior, jvc double din touch screen. apart from that stock. it has a fair few cat scratches and a couple of deepish scratches.
or a 04 VZ ss 6spd man 115,000 stock. yet to actually view it yet. there both within my budget to "buy". the calais would be more practical and probably more of a sleeper once im done modding it. but it doesnt have the V8 rumble! suggestions?

99' Series 3 VS S-Pac Ute.
ute ute ute ute ute ute!
utes are sexy, plus it's newer, plus it's manual and plus it will have the orgasmic sound of a v8.

Engine wise I'd go for the V8 any day. I guess it comes down to needing/wanting a sedan or ute.

I love my VT s/c Calais and am happy with the power & torque. But unless you particularly need a sedan (e.g. for family) or really can't do without the lux Calais bits, i'd go for the VZ ute if it's in alright nic. Better motor, SS kudos, a little bit newer. Don't worry about the extra 23,000km that's nothin' for an 8.

yer there is a question here or else i wouldnt have bothered asking.. i would love the v8 torque and noise and the fact that i can gett a hard tonneau some rims and lower it and itll look like sex! however the calais does look fairly classy and the l67 can get up and go...in some cases straight passed the 8..well to 100 atleast! lol

what are your power, L/100 figures and mods for 8 or 6?
