    It looks OK.

    If you can afford an extra 3k or so I'd have a look at the VTII Clubbys. At least take one for a drive to compare the difference in the driveline. Something like this looks good.
    http://www.carsales.com.au/all-cars/private/details.aspx?R=6100762&__sid=112F1FA941C6&__Qpb=tr ue&Cr=5&__Ns=pCar_Price_Decimal|0||pCar_RankSort_I nt32|1||pCar_Make_String|0||pCar_Model_String|0&ke ywords=&__N=1216%201282%204294965530%204294964634% 20904&seot=0&tsrc=allcarhome&__Nne=15&trecs=28&sil o=1011
    $16,500.

    I'm a bit biased as I have a VTII Clubby, but I've never thought much of the VT Manta either. Just my opinion as I don't like the body kit.

    Was never a fan of the series one VT. Would rather a series II or a VR/VS personally
