My new VL

My VL became a waste of time so I got a newy. VL SL Formula, Factory 5-speed, has been owned by my mum since it was 2 years old so its very dear to me, no dodgie crap being done to this one. Already has extractors and exhaust but not loud enough. Plans are replace bodykit wif LE rear bar extention, Claias skirts and moulds and Formula front bar extention, once i find one, and my calais front and tail light moulds colour coded. Put my electric windows and mirrors in it and my interior including rear and quarter venetians. My exhaust from cat back and my 17s

wow so your mum had it since two years old? good work I guess that's one bonus; knowing the complete history of vehicle (or it could be a bad thing)

hopefully she made the right choice in passing it down to you, any plans engine wise?

IMO if anything that looks slightly tacky, but each to their own

with the calais taillight moulds and bootmoulds in white will look similair to the vl director. brocky's last hurrah. you could also do up some taillights like the director.

i recon the standard front and rear bars with the formula extensions and like you said the calais skirts.

does it have the headrest inserts? damn that just looks so clean, normally the mirrors and that start flaking and the headlights look almost new as do the taillights. sweet car.
