Never had the hubcaps, which I regret now. When I ordered it from the dealer I liked the look of some other 15" ROH wheels that were on another car in the yard so they swapped them. They got replaced with some 16" Simmons B45's a few years later. I bought the police rims about 15 years ago and had them laying around just in case.

If anyone has any for sale........

As for the bumper colours, 747 is right, there was only one for the SL's, Exec's & Berlina's (apart from the body colour if you wanted it). 4H017 Grey Metallic is the go.
It was the Calais that had the choice of three.

Seriously ?! Adelaide is such a small place. You should have stopped and had a chat. I was probably in a world of my own. I moved house about six months ago to the other side of town so am looking for new locations out this way.

Thanks for the comments too. I had her out for a run on Sunday for the first time in a month. Always feels like coming home as soon as I get in.

How long have you had this one ? Did you pick it up stock or have to convert it back ? Mate of mine in Brisbane (pretty sure he lurks on here) has an SL identical to yours and in just as original condition.

I'm tossing up at the moment whether to get the kick-up exhaust put back on to complete the whole look, except in 2.5" like the rest of the system. I'm not a fan of the stock steering wheels but may even put that back on when I get rid of the full metal jacket on the steering column soon. SL tail lights and garnish have also been put aside for a rainy day.

VLTWHite1 - All i saw was some random guy taking pics of a vl and didnt know it was you untill you posted up the pics.

Get your mate to post up pics of his SL if possible and i think you need to put your sl lights/garnish back on

I've owned my vlt for about 5 years now, it was only slightly modified when i got it having a momo steering wheel, mags, and a turbo timer. I've put all that stuff back to standard since i've had it but i've also modified it aswell. its now got a Hidden flat black front mount, Microtech ecu, high flow turbo , 440cc injectors bigger fuel pumps etc. I've tryed very hard to keep the overall look of the car as original as possible but aslo wanted a bit of performance.

I thought i had a pic of your car somewhere with the standard rear muffler ? but 2.5" kick up would be ok.
With my vl i wanted a 3"mandrell system for flow but also wanted a standard kick up rear muffler to keep the original look so the only option was to do both. i got a full 3" mandrell system put on then removed the 3" tail pipe, dumped the exhaust just over the diff and put a standard rear muffler on.
I also welded the standard rear muffler to the dump behind the diff and made it so the standard rear muffler gets about 15% of gas flow. This way you can feel the exhaust gasses coming out the exhaust when its running and still gets soot around the exhaust tip without the restriction of the standard rear muffler.

HDT086 My car has done 218,000kms,

Are you sure?
VLTWhite1 is your car a BT1 or is it an SL Turbo?
