    Just put my SAP Grilles on today.. Sadly it's the first mod I've ever done to a car by myself so it took a little bit longer than expected. Everything ended up going pretty good so I snapped a few shots.. The first one is a before.

    are those wheels chrome?

    it amazes me how much pontiac 'changed' the monaro's styling, with just a few minor touches

    I really like the GTOs. My buddy has an 06 that we just did Kooks LTs and Corsa catback. Sounds vicious.

    Nah, they're stock wheels. Good thing too, he's curbed all 4 fairly badly. We call them his "training wheels" :rofl: He wants to run my c6 vette wheels but they won't fit in front.

    optional stock wheels. You have the Pontiac 17's, and than those were an option. They are a Holden design.

    I don't have 17's. I have 18/19.

    Splitting hairs but whatever. The CAR is a Holden design too. :)

    I'm just saying, those wheels are from the Holden range, badged as Pontiac wheels. The 17's are a Pontiac design. Imo the 18's transform the car. That blue colour is really nice too.

    That there is about as nice as GTO's get.

    18s was an option for the 05/06s. 17s stock for all three years
