    Default Well, wagon from Aus...

    Yo! So I'm a minute into this build and thought I'd throw up a thread.
    I think it might be something different for dudes over there, so here goes...

    2010 VE SV6 SW:

    I bought it like this about 4 months ago (See pics)
    Since then it's had Pedders XA Coilovers dropped in w/ Strut Brace (Will have sway bars/Bushes/Camber bolts etc done in the near future) // put some bigger shoes on it (About to order 19x10 F & R Work Brombachers) // debadged it and blacked out the big ass lion on the front // SSV Quad tips/Mufflers // Beesting Aerial // Pontiac GXP diffuser // SSV seats wrapped in Black Onyx leather // Rolled guards all 'round // 35% tint all 'round...

    It's still got a long long way to go, but it's a start.
    I'll get some better, updated pictures up real quick as I'm just at work right now.
    Peace.

    Word thanks.
    Work did a run of Brombachers in 5x120 for BMW's which is the same as a Commodore/Pontiac, and they agreed to do another run of them so I snapped some up.

    Now to play the waiting game...

    Damn they're going to be expensive! I like where this is headed though.

    Was it only the 5x120 they were doing a run of and are they still taking orders etc?

    I fucking love stepped dish.

    Yeah they're not cheap!
    And they're still doing them, I think they agreed to do another run of them.

    Yo bit of an update, wheels are now ordered. Ended up going 19x9.5 +31 all 'round... 8 long weeks ahead.
    Other than that I'll have some decent photos up this weekend, if all goes to plan anyway!

    Neither, it's the wagon version of the American Pontiac G8 and the UK Vauxhall Monaro.
    There's no different version of this car sold in Europe.

    Pedders coilovers..really? lol i wouldnt think they would go low or be stiff enough or valved hard enough to run proper stance. no offence just Pedders arent generally good at this stuff :P

    so 9.5 +31 eh. What does the usual HSV VE run?
    can say i've never seen one done particularly nicely so we shall see how you go!

    Do you know if they are making them in 5x114.3 as well? Who are you ordering them through? What sized tyres are you putting on them?

    Man I was a bit um and ah at first with Pedders too, but they seem to be holding up real good so far, I'll guess we'll see. I got plenty more low left in them aswell. The HSV rims are staggered at 8'' F & 9.5'' R, I'm not sure on offsets though.

    As far as I know it's just 5x120 & 5x130, going through Vivid.
