Go for injected LPG.

A TS 50 front bar would look good, of course lowering and rims are a must.

I'm assuming its the same unit that comes in the AUII LTD as standard - it was probably good in its time. 2D maps that are 7 years old really don't compare against the latest version of Tom Tom Navigator... but its handy when I forget to bring my PDA or my GPS receiver :)

I believe you update the satnav maps via DVD. Mine is an 03 BA factory satnav, and has the main gps unit in the boot with a inbuilt dvd drive.

Is this $6000 for engine and exterior mods?

If ya want a decent gas system, you could almost spend ya whole 6g's on a Vapour injection kit for it.

Yeah true, didnt think of the government grant.
Definately more than 4 grand over here for one for an AU series windsor.

congratulations mate!!!! Did you purchase it from CAR CITY (OFF WARRAGUL RD IN CHELTENHAM????)

I bought mine from GRAND PRIX MOTORS which is on the very corner of this vast establishment. For some reason this car yard manages to get its hands on the cream of AU's from Tickford's to luxo barges.

There is a nice v8 au sportsman there at this very moment for $19,000. It's black and looks slick.
