WL Caprice & VQ Stato
hey guys new to this forum, just wanted to share my new Caprice,
late 2004 model had 92,000kms on it 5.7l.
All pretty standard so far just got front drilled and slotted rotors,
next is a dark window tint then a nice exhaust :D
would like to know what people think and any suggestions for it :)



















Cheers David

Howdy, I just brought one of these a couple of months ago as well. 12/05 66K. They area whole lot of car for the 23K I paid for it here in WA. I have some 19" Lavinhard Fatboys coming for mine this week (Machine Faced) There is a guy on here who has the black ones on his black caprice and they look great.

The other thing I'm waiting to head to Perth again for is to have the head unit taken out and the top of the wazza Alpine unit put in.

i got PBR drilled n slotted discs for $90 each and QFM pads for about $40 i think.


as for you only getting a V6.... bit of a shame lol I got my 5.0L VQ when I was on my P's just told my folks that I was aloud to have it, had to sneak around the cops tho. :whistling

That sounds like a very good price, do u mean $90 for the pair of roters?
cheapest i found for my set was roughly $180 for a pair of RDA dimpeld and slotted.

My parents dont mind if i had the v8, but its me thats concerned bout the popo. i drive around everyday all around so i couldnt risk it.
But once im done with my ps ill be going for the WL hsv grange, They look amazing. Its a shame they have shortened the WM version. they were unique for its long chasis now they look like a plain VE from Far :(
