My Zr6


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I've owned my 2007 ZR6 for a few years now. The first car I bought was a 2008 ve sv6 commodore (which was written off due to someone running a red light in front of my other half). I was then deciding between a xr6 and the zr6 as the replacement as I like the size of the sedans and still being on my P plates. I eventually went with the ZR6 simply because of the leather seat but so glad with my choice for many reasons. Just thought I would actually post something up about my car finally and talk a bit with you guys now that I actually own a computer haha.

I have not done too much to the car since I've had it. I planned to get rid of it the moment I had my open license and upgrade to something a little more silly (Honda s2000 with a 2jz swap is the current plan). But I Am tossing up between buying a new car or putting that money towards a house and at the moment, the house is winning (no thanks to the missus).

So far all I have done to my car is as follows

changed my parker lights to white leds and my lights to HIDs

I purchased some second hand 19s for cheap rather than buying new tyres haha

Lowered the car. We ordered super low king springs from ebay but for some unknown reason we were sent SSLs. after installing them we found that they dropped the car a total of 11.7cms from stock height.

Have plastidipped the front grill and have applied nightshade to the rear tail lights.

As I said I was not planning to do much more to it as I was planning on buying a new car this year, but it seems plans have changed so will be doing a fair bit more to it. A new exhaust and air intake in the next two weeks.

Any ideas or advice please let me know.

Thanks guys, now that I plan to actually spend a little bit more money on it will keep it updated. Also changed the stock headunit over for a china one with 8inch touch screen.

sadly with the 19s it just cant get much lower without super stiff coilovers. Will be doing the sway bars and strut brace before the end of the year for sure. Was also looking at picking up a pair of trd brakes but am leaning towards some decent DBA rotors
