    Look much nice without the pinstriper! Love white VR/VS Statesman.

    Is your a/c vents is stuffed itself? it is common, 3 times stuffed on mine lol, Sound like dash or vent itself need replace, but interior look sweet. Any more plan on it?

    Calais wheels look good, should get them polished, they really stand out then.

    Would love a set for mine

    as other guys said....get not_an_abba_fan to do a catback for you.

    It gets shipped to your door within the week, is around the same price as an off the shelf exhaust from repco etc

    It sounds brilliant, redback will sound like arse in comparison.

    He did my statesman's exhaust and I love it
