    [NSW] Hornsby - 2009 VE Calais Wagon (V8)

    Details:

    Car is a Jan 2009 build Calais V Wagon (Rego says 2008 because the RTA is a bunch of retards).

    Price: For PF i'd like to see 12k... People out there have these advertised > 15-17k, they must be smoking drugs. (note, is getting a proper clean tomorrow...If it looks better in pictures after, i'll update them)
    Mods: Has been touched by Dale, includes dyno chart - Has 1 7/8" extractors & new cats at the same time & OTR intake... Goes really well... Rest of exhaust is stock, AFM is still switched on...

    Interesting features:
    Has HD towbar (and wiring/module, etc)
    Had AC regas in 2017 (had a leaking refill valve), works well
    Had a new alternator about 6mths ago & new battery (a proper Varta Silver from memory)
    Had new front struts & bushings about 1yr ago
    Had new discs & pads about 1yr ago
    Has full leather interior as these things do
    We've had it for over 5yrs and nothing except oil changes & the above, basically... Very reliable...
    Has a massive boot. Can fit lots of bodies in.. Will probably not fit a double door fridge.
    Has a focal underseat sub/amp & focal front splits, sounds quite good considering & monumentally better than stock (all in stock locations so can't be seen)
    Front tyres have good tread, rear not so much. Wear is almost perfectly even across the tyres front & rear.
    Is proper fast in a straight line.
    Has V8.

    Not so interesting features:
    Has a scrape on a door that has been touched up (and has been like that since 2014 when the missus scratched it)
    Has usual car park dings a massive car like this gets
    Has a mark on the rear bumper & new the fuel filler which were both there when we bought it.
    I think the headliner is starting to peel a little on the front passenger side... I haven't paid a lot of a attention to it, the missus drives it 90% of the time...
    Has ~172k km. Does not use oil or blow smoke...
    Plates not included

      I've been towing heavy stuff, like bike racks, mostly.

                Is there 500 lizards in the fish tank? Chicks dig lizards.

                        Better than stock. We do lots of local driving and average about 15.5 for me, about 16.4 for the missus, fuel economy improves the quicker you accelerate as you end up coasting heaps more. Freeway is about 10, with 4 people fully loaded for a week away.

                            I've put it up on scumtree, luckily no retards trying to swap me for fish tanks yet.

                            For PF I'm happy to negotiate on price... Before I bother dropping the price on scumtree !
