May I ask what you were unhappy about with the previous rep box? (other than the fact it wasnt the genuine one).

Damn maybe I should try and fit one of these on my HSV hahaha.

I sense the CSL bug is going to bite you now, bet you the roof and interior comes next.

Congrats on purchase Mal - the sound is very addictive, you're going to love it!

Nothing really, its pretty much exactly the same as the genuine article, only difference is it isn't It looks the same, and I imagine it even sounds very similar, the rep even takes genuine OEM CSL filters. I just wanted the real deal...

Yep, already sorted the trunk & diffuser, and am just in the process of sourcing a roof at the moment...

Who is this? Adnan? I already do love it as I'm seriously not expecting too much sound difference to what I have. Maybe it will be a bit sharper or something, not sure yet. Will be finding out soon enough though...

Yes, I got your PM thanks. As stated above I am going to try to sell locally in Perth first (thats purely because its easiest for me). I have had numerous offers all willing to pay asking price. If I cant sell it locally here in Perth I think I'll put it on Ebay, that's the only fair way. I'll keep you posted if I do. Keep in mind, shipping this overseas is going to be somewhere between $150 - 300...

Yeh, it's me mate. Nothing beats the genuine box although to get that extra deep induction sound you hear on the CSL you will have to have the accompanying higher lift camshaft, which is next I presume? hehe

Can you believe that guy on CSLreg got sent a metal roof instead of carbon?! Tough getting parts now - I'm thinking about getting a spare roof in case something happens to mine but then again I find it hard to believe they would end parts for the CSL...

My Ride: lots
Manufacturing spare parts is a pain. Not only do you have to maintain the tooling in tip top shape, you have to ensure they will fit the machines as they modify / upgrade them. And if thats not bad enough they have to find time to slot them in to get made around current production or pay other companies to slot them in for small runs which is expensive.

Unless they are different to the rest of the manufacturers in the world, production would run an all time requirement for the spare parts and then hand the tooling over to spare parts to do what ever they want with them.
