Get yourself a VXR. Work on tires, brake pads/shoe, engine swap and you're flying. (Y)
However, these are just basics, you might wanna get yourself, Electronic power steering, power windows, central locking, rims, body kit, HIDs, a great music system and whatever your budget allows.
If you're cool with hydraulic steering, then i won't recommend you VXR, VXL is the way to go then.
