    Whoa, very nice mate.

    A damn sight better than the 99.9% of VL turbos that frequent bankstown square and brighton le sands.

    Thats dash looks so clean too mate very nice.
    I wouldn't recommend sex, drugs or insanity for everyone, but they've always worked for me...

                              Thanks for the comments guys, I appreciate it.

                              the auto is fantastic on the track, in the wet especially, it is very cheap for the trq and abuse it handles and is soft on the running gear, so no breakages...getting away fast off the line is great too.
