I was at the Newcastle autosalon and have a few pics of that calais. Bloody nice looking car. I was talking to the dude who owns it but im not too sure where his from. I think the motor is fairly standard apart from a t4 turbo and frount mount. if you give us your email ill send you some pics

Autosalon is quickly becoming a competition to see who can afford the most speedflow fittings and who has the most chrome in their engine bay. Underneath it all, the cars can be pretty ordinary. Never was really interested in it, and seeing pics like these each year just lowers my interest even further for next year

Yeah I went to that on the weekend.

I agree the Sydney one is better.

Actually did you notcie just about all of those VLs had rice stickers on them?

The blue one had a HKS one on the left hand side front quarter panel.

I hope that isnt the in thing for VLs up here in Newcastle.

It is the Auto salon best of the best. Those VLs that are there are very ordinary the maroon one for intance the radiator is crappy matt black colour with maroon over spray, yeah fair enough it might have some nice gear motor wise but its those little things that make or break an engine bay especially in the auto salon! Whats with the stickers on the white VL and the huge hole where the air box should be?? The quality has really gone down hill.
