Well well, at long last i've gone and bought a V8.... Will just pop up the previous owners pics for now and will sort my own soon...







Spec as follows

Pedders coilovers
Pedders rear end pack with polybushes.
Pedders Strut brace
Magnaflow exhaust (not a Wortec as I thought)
Harrop rear diff cover
Wheels refurbished by Lepsons in shadow chrome.

It's pretty mint, only 26K on the clock and full Monkfish service history.

Picked it up from kent so the drive back in convoy with my mate in his RS4 through the Dartford tunnel was fun :)

First off , right colour for a Monaro , second point the interior looks nice especially the green LCD backlighting . Looks very well cared for , only thing I'd look to change would be to move the wheels out a bit to give a bit more aggression to the stance of car . I'm sure all you'll do for now is just enjoy driving it i know I would .

Thanks chaps... After a couple of weeks of ownership, i'm loving it. The LSD works nicely so it's pretty progressive when the back end steps out (which it will, in most gears, particularly in this damp greasy weather.) i'm still getting used to getting the power down but getting more confident with it.

One thing that I will be doing soon is upgrading the front brakes.... a couple of slow downs from 100 ish (leptons per second, obviously) and they fade like buggery. There are AP racing kits but some of the guys in the states and down under seem to use Cadilac CTS-V 6 pots and 355mm discs so am looking at various options. Reyland have a decent offer on the AP four pots with 350mm discs but am still researching.

Oh... and about 15mpg so far if anyone is interested..... it's been getting some stick though in fairness :)
