    First Time Owner XU6.......



    So was looking for something to use as a daily, after looking at many VY Calais with blown head gaskets came across a XU6. The longer I own it, the more I love it and the less I want to drive it .

    It’s a S1 VT, special order for HSV in NZ, it’s an imported export........lol. It’s quite unique as it’s one of 3 specially ordered identical cars in Hackett Gold, colour trail cars prior to S2 SV99’s. It has the upgraded brakes and build sheet says Colousons but none fitted. As it came back across the ditch it’s the only S1 XU6 in Oz in Hackett Gold, possibly the only S1 HSV in this colour.....anyone else have one??

    Love this car, it’s not perfect but will only get better with time.

    Bug has bitten and now also have a 98 VT Clubby......

    Welcome Stevinoz.
    Does your XU6 have the HBD body kit or the Clubsport style? Also does it have the larger brakes fitted?
    Very unique car you have there. Well done

    People often under rate the usable fun of a good/special 6cyl car.

    With the bang for buck value of an 8 over a 6, it's always hard to go for the 6.
    Seems a nice buy Steve, keeping it honest to what it is.

    Cheers I intend on keeping it as original as possible and returning it back to original.

    Saw a post on Facebook of a HSV S1 Clubsport in Hackett Gold so another unique VT.
