    Yea i was talking about methanol just use to remember the drag cars use to have to run much bigger fuel systems and also they didnt need to use intercoolers because the inlet temps where way down using methanol.

    OK mine is ready for pick up in the next day or so.

    Phone pics at the dealers so quality is below par.















    Car has been washed but not detailed so I will need to clay bar the paint on the weekend to get rid of any contaminants and then the whole 2 part wax and polish.

    Initial impressions:

    Fit and finish are really good, interior foams are firmer than the Clubbie, the exhaust tips are amazing, the front ducts for the gearbox radiators are an amazing detail, spare takes up a lot of space (refer the other thread). Even the rear brakes look huge let alone the fronts. Those calipers are really close to the rims. Sitting in the driver's seat will be very very nice. Should be mine tomorrow subject to the vagaries of working for a living.

    I am really pleased I went with the SV bits and left the LSA badge off. Not to make a sleeper but it is a cleaner view.

    And before you ask it was damn hard (I am using euphemisms) walking back outside to drive the Rodeo home!

    Thank you to Andrew and HSV.

    A little aside, #2 son went to one of the shopping centres today and a standard Clubbie was being raffled. The guy with the tickets called him over and said hey want to buy a ticket in a GenF Clubsport. No thanks I am on my red Ps. What about for your dad? No need, he picks up his GTS this week!

    I asked for the badge to be left off. Something that I requested through the dealer when I first ordered the car. I am not much of a badge person. The GTS badging is fine. I even took the Clubsport badging off the E2 though mostly that was because they kept getting caught up in the wash mit.
