    Overall the car is near perfect. It has 94 000k's on the clock with a full service history at Holden, been in Canberra its whole life. Purchased from retired couple - so more than likely never flogged. Really loving all the Berlina options as my last two cars were base model. Future mods will be carried out as money permits, though the stereo will be first as i have all the components, just need the fibreglass, carpet, mdf etc for the install.

    All comments and suggestions welcomed!

    I don't mind at all mate, i paid $9000. Full service history at Holden, retired owner, all the good stuff all the options. Will need a new steering rack by the end of the year though, that is the only bad point.

    Haha yeah i was going to mate, though i get sick of **** always getting flung up the side of my car. i saw a monaro with the mudflaps painted body colour and thought it looked alright. Though more likely i will take them off with the intention to paint them and just keep them off haha.

    Yeah looks much better i'll agree haha. I'll prob take them off this week and see how it goes. I'll also try find a pic of the monaro lol.

    its annoying as though when you just wash it and you drive thru a puddle :S haha
