Your current seats are exactly like mine, but they should be like the vx coulsons but in shale leather.
Unless only the series 1 sig has the coulsons?

Yeah only the series one sig's had the coulsons the standard senators had a more standard looking seat like the calais or clubsports without the massive headrest that the coulsons have and the series 2 have the ones like mine witch are more strange and pointed like the Vz r8's have

I checked it up now on the hsv site just to make sure

You should post a pic of your seats im curious now haha if you do have seats like mine the coulson headrest wont fit as the seats are shaped differently but if you have standard s1 seats then it Will fit no worries

Thats the standard senator series 1 seats there just more rounded off like standard seat different to the series 2 sigs's and series 1 sigs
Crappy photo though thats all i could find lol

Thanks for the offer bro, I have been on the hunt for them ever since I brought my car. I have found foams for $280ea!!! Way too much for foams in my opinion, by the time I by leather and get them trimmed it would set me back easy over 1k. Just for head rests, I dont think so lol.

Weren't you selling this since you got the Jeep Mus? It's money well spent on the module for the steering wheel controls.

Yeah I was man, when it came down to the crunch and people were viewing the car and talking money I just couldn't do it.
So I drive it here and there now instead of regularly.

Thanks bro, yeah I definitely need some new centre caps. Problem is I refuse to pay $200+ for fake crap... Non genuine caps are getting harder to find now, and genuine ones wont fit. Apparently holden is trying to stomp out all fake GM products, making them harder and dearer to find. Keeping my eyes out though.

Thanks alot buddy, appreciate it.
I think its the little things that add up and make a big difference in the end, and also make my car that little bit more unique.
After i get my hands on some chrome lug nuts I will paint the drums black or gold as they are old and dull looking, then get some new upgraded rotors...
Then move on to the bay

Lol I love your sig. Brings me back every time I see it..

I'm hoping it will definetly be more responsive, I already have extractors so I should definitely see a bigger power gain and fuel economy boost when I get the edit done. Most VX - VY SS models see about 235rwk, so if I get that that or hopefully more I will be happy. I'm more so looking forward to the better fuel economy, mines a pig lol. It already chirps 2nd without any mods so I'm not looking forward to that, that seems to be something all the auto guys are hanging for when then they mafless tune their auto LS1s lol.
