    Not sure the bonnet or wheels are included in the package. Strange that all the photos show cosmetic features of the car that aren't included in the package and don't show any of the components that they listed below.


    Included in the W310 package:

    • Walkinshaw Performance Ceramic Coated Headers, matched with High Flow Catalytic Converters.
    • Unique Walkinshaw Performance Stainless Steel Cat Back Exhaust System. (Featuring added growl!)
    • Unique Walkinshaw Performance Cold Air Intake.
    • Custom ECU recalibration developed on Walkinshaw Performance’s dynamometer.
    • W310 Build Plate and Rear Deck Lid Badging.
    • Walkinshaw Performance Driveline Warranty.

    Walkinshaw unfortunately do attract a hefty premium, i'd hate to think all this stuff would cost any more than $3000 if sourced individually (but for badges)

    I guess this confirms the VF can be tuned the same as the VE.

    Why can't they just stick to performance parts? Enough of the plastic vents, crappy wheels and tacky badges. It's heading towards Pimp My Ride territory.

    For walkinshaw its all about image, the name, the look etc. Its all about appealing to people with money who want a brand name and don't know any better.

    Anyone catch the Melbourne Herald Sun today carsguide ? (19 July).
    Craig Duff had an insert on the centre page of a review of the SSV redline.
    To quote his last sentence "The consensus: $6500 is worth it for the sound alone. Job done, then."
    Oh dear, it comes with, Cold air, ceramic coated headers, & a full 'custom' exhaust. That's it...
    That's a terrible start for Walkinshaw.

    Most auto writers dont know a Kia from a KitKat.

    Although, after thinking about it alittle harder. I can see people dropping the $6.5k on an SS, just to save the hassle of dealing with workshops.

    It's like Holden are trying to put the fear of god in you just to buy their subsidiaries products.

    WPS have nothing to do what so ever with Holden. Their only connection is they are owned by the same company that is part owner of HSV.
