My vl (limited edition berlina) Bfs vl (calais series II)

Just recently purchased a n/a berlina limited edition 2 months ago. bought it off a mechanic, his dad bought it brand new in 87 and passed it onto him. His wife just drove the kids around etc. Has 153,000ks on the clock. Immaculate condition inside and out. Came with reg and rwc.

First thing was to remove the plastic venetians on the rear windows, mudflaps, de badge it, take off the stockys & put some decent wheels on
Wheels: changed to 17inch venom
Motor: stock as a rock
Lowered the ass
Bought white venetians, sprayed the side ones white to match (came with side venetians)
Seat covers
Floormats
6x9s, 2 x 10inch subs with 2 amps
Tinted tail lights
Issota Steering wheel (still to be fitted)

Future mods: full turbo conversion (cant wait)
Exhaust
Tint the windows
Lower the front
Full respray (havent decided what colour yet)
Maybe a calais front and back

Last pic is of my bfs n/a calais series II, had it for about 3 weeks, just slammed it on 19inch senator signature rims
Mods: white rear venetians, lowered, rims, seat covers, stereo, autotechnica steering wheel.
Future mods: full turbo conversion (driveline)
Full respray (don't know what colour yet)
Sadly you wont see this car on the road for another 6months as he lost his licence!!

Few pics of my berlina now, still to put on the pictures of when i first picked her up!








Bfs calais series II

its also got sum sticker along the bottom of the side mould its silver says limited edition with like silver dots...its wierd.. some people were talking about them on here http://forum.streetcommodores.com.au....php?p=1413572

I like the blue on the Berlina, but i despise that steering wheel.

Trim sure is different to a standard Berlina.

haha yeh its just temporary until i get a better 1, only cuz i didnt want that original steering wheel that was on there, it was like driving a bus

yeh the trim is way nicer, i havent seen many with the light grey interior it almost looks white from far away, its nice though, very very clean interior

yeh i dont get the hole limited edition thing either, it makes sense though they came out with the same coloured bumpers n stuff, i did think about spraying them light silver, but its different like this thats y i like it, i also thought about putting a calais front & bak on it, and having them silver with the silver moulds..it would look mint like that because the colour is nice.

Pretty clean Berlina you got there, i love it. Soo clean it's not funny, specially the interior woo hoo. Love the blue on it too. You should leave the original colour i reckon, keep it stock.

Just get new Headlights and if you're planning on getting an exhaust go for 2.4" for an N/A.

Might be the way the photo was taken or something, duno i thought the headlights looked a little bit faded. NEW ones would make the front look cleaner. Keep up the good work though. it's hard to find decent Vls in that condition nowdays
