thanks guys.
Not many kays yet steve,just drove it home as Ive been doing my nightshifts.
Not affraid yet but have been doing some research on the net to work out whats the best mods to get done and by whom.
Have to go back to the dealers tomorrow as they got the wrong mats(should be red ones)and the bonnet protector should have arrived.Things seem to take longer up here in the sticks.

just a quick update guys.
Just had the 15000km service this week.
And removed those rediculously large holden badges from the boot and fitted a chev grill with a red badge.Also the commodore badge on boot,but kept all the SS badges.

Have been having a few dramas of late,been back to holdens about 5 times so far and now the trans is playing up.They took 4 tries at replacing the dash cluster as they got the wrong ones each time and on 1 occassion they changed the readout above the radio instead of the dash cluster readout.And also the SS badge on the righthand rear door is half hangin off(these are actually covered under warranty)so sould get new one fitted soon.

Will be at the SMASA show.So should catch up then.

Been back to holdens 3 more times with trans problems,they recon they put 2.5 litres of fluid in it on the second occassion and said it should be fixed.Next day trans still doin same,went back third time for more tests for holdens and now a new trans has been aproved,waiting for call to take it in once again.

On another note,had loan cars each day and the best one so far had to be a demo SS sportswagon with manual trans,geeze do these things go hard and lots more fun than the auto.If I have any more problems with this it could be gone for a manual SS sportswagon.

Well after yesturdays cruise to pt augusta and todays to the clare valley to trans has decided to let go.The rear of the car and underside is covered in trans fluid,called the customer care number,told them what has happened.An hour later the RAA guy rocked up from Pirie with the tilt tray and is dropping it off at holdens first thing.
Will be on the fone to them at 8:30 just before car is dropped off in driveway.

Here's some pics of the mess.






and the final one,bye bye.

Well the sarga continues,taking it in to holdens as the big guns from adelaide are in town.They want to test drive car and hopefully trans plays up for them so something can finally be done to fix it. The local yocals working there keep saying its normal.

Bummer Kev Evil or Very Mad

Yep mine has lost approx $150.00 per week with only 10,000kms travelled

The VE ute has been back twice once for recall and just recently for the entire dash out (replace aircon) and stereo, you think they would get it right in these tough times Mad

Still havent got a torneuo cover yet Shocked
