    VE SS-V
    Hi everyone,

    Last Friday I picked up my brand new VE Commodore SS-V in wildfire metallic. Extras: HSVI Exclusive Fluxus 20" In Chrome Shadow wheels, alarm upgrade, boot-lip protector, SS branded mats and tinting. I also got the V8 supercars RTA plates.

    First two are at the dealership, showing the SS-V and Civic (previous car) together for the first and last time. My red plates got moved from the Civic to the beast before picking up the V8 style plates. Next one is at Maroubra Beach, then some night shots, then at Bobbin Head on a Sunday foggy/misty morning.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. I've used up most of my money so I haven't really thought about mods just yet. Lowering would be awesome but just a bit nervous about shopping centres or places where I could potentially bottom out.

    Hey mate sweet ride and I love the colour, currently looking at a SSV Widlfire Ute. Just a few things bug me and hopping you can help me out. One in particular the instrument cluster kinda looks like you can’t see the speedo and revs during the day as white on grey doesn’t really work. How is it for you? Does it look better at night time light up? Are you able to take a photo at night of your instrument cluster so I can get a better understanding?

    Super Coach, sometimes I find that when the sun (or light on overcast days) hits the panel, I have to turn the lights on so the panel will light up so I can read the display. It's rare but it does happen. Here is a day and night shot.

    ^^ At least that looks better than the silly all-red display on mine (MY09). :bang: Probably a bit easier to read than the red too.

    Supercoach, you do know about Phreddy right? He can change the colour of the LED displays if they're really annoying you.

    You'd have to contact Phreddy himself, but a ballpark would be $300-$400.
