Are the white gauge fascia after market? I had a look around and it seems to have been listed a few times.

Yes they're aftermarket. Ruins that instrument cluster, or any HSV/ Holden for that matter.

OK, you've got me interested. My eye isnt as keen to pick any differences in bumpers this morning but I cant see what is non genuine about the front bumper

I just had a quick look against my old pics and I cant see it

Hi Mate photo 3 black trim is larger as it is a VN group a bar, VP bars are different around headlights. ( VP head lights re smaller....)

Also VN Grill.

Yeah I know VN Group A and VP GTS bumpers are supposedly different but I cant see it. I know the VP GTS has rubber between the lights and bumper whereas the Group A doesnt but yes other than that Im not going to bother trying to pick the difference without having one anymore.
Souljet may be able to see the difference as he has both the VP GTS and VN Group A bumper

The grill is easy to pick since you've pointed it out

Hi all
The grill is actually correct VP GTS as it is online with the bottom of the headlights. It's the VN group A bar, because in the centre under the grill the Group A bar dips about 20mm lower than the GTS bar, therefore the Gap. The GTS bar should sit flush with the grill.
The Group A radiator & engine got air through through this gap as the grill was flat, whereas the GTS has a hole in the grill. I hope you can see the difference from my explanation.

I've never taken notice of the deeper cut under the grill before in the Group A

Yes, a Group A front bar will fit on a VP GTS, but the gap between the grill and the bar makes the front look really ugly. A VP GTS bar will not even fit on a VN Group A. That is the real difference between the two. I hope you get it now.
