    Couple of new pics from a trip to the beach today. Great day!





    Definitely thinking the wheels need to be the same dark grey as the rear bumper insert, or perhaps that Subaru grey with the gold fleck in. The top pic has my MCM bumper repair job on (right side front bumper). Turned out awesome

      Get some Whiteline Swaybars, they should help with the body roll... coilovers are stupidly expensive for commodores (like $2000+ for the cheapies).

      V6 needs twin turbo, or its just another turbo commy

        It's a supercharger actually. Zero lag ftw!

        Also, I think I'm in love:

          I had to look twice to confirm it was a SC, lol. To used to the oem ones on commos.

          Those wheels look sweet.

            Car looks great! We need more cars like this in the EU! How much power is the car currently producing?

                Thanks TGA, to be honest I have no idea. When the car was stock it was 235kw at the flywheel from factory, I haven't had it on a dyno to check.

                I need to get a retune soon on a dyno due to it running very rich, I'll give you a figure once that is done. I'm not expecting much more than 200rwkw. It does get up and boogie quite well for a tank though!

                  I bet it's a heavy car as well isn't it?

                      Looks great mate, glad to see another clean looking commodore on the forums. Hopefully we can slowly show that some commodore owners are tasteful!

                        Thanks Slaebe!

                        Do any adelaiders know where I can get some diff gears installed? I've got a set of 3.91:1 ratio gears sitting here doing nothing right now

                            Booked in for tint, since my own attempts at tint were an utter failure.

                            Never been so excited to put some darkly covered film on my car!

                                Looks a bit odd with the Clubby bar and the Calais bonnet strip... But I kinda like it, it kinda looks like a Senator thats even more pissed off :P

                                Those Black wheels look MINT! Can I sense a Stormtroopered Calais in the near future?
