I don't know for sure what will fit where, but I do know that HSV brakes will fit on an american GTO. They perform quite well also.

What about the HSV Voxhaull Monaro from the UK, the one that was in the top gear review? I want my GTO to look exactly like that one... except in impulse blue.

Oh man, this is insane.

HSV 19" Alloy Wheels, Complete Set of 4 inc. Nuts and Caps, No Tyres $ 5,793.55
HSV GTO and GTS Genuine Bodykit, Complete. Unpainted $ 8,890.00
VT-VX 427 Clear Tail Lights, in Silver or Black Finish $ 427.00
HSV '300' Engine Covers $ 603.35
HSV Steering Wheel Airbag $ 427.35
Monaro Tail Lights Wiring Harness $ 29.00 ea
HSV 'HSV w/Logo' Badge $ 62.15
HSV 'Logo' Badge $ 62.15
HSV 'GTO' Badge $ 82.70
HSV 'Coupe' Badge $ 65.25
Total = $16,554.20

That's a little obsurd, don't you think? I love the way the Monaro looks, but half the price of the car just to get it to look different is insane.

I don't understand this obession with some owners of the 04 GTO in changing its idenity into some Holden/Monaro hybrid.

I pulled that straight from CAPA's site, so not sure on the currency. Even if it ends up being 12k that's still a pretty bad hit ( that's not including shipping either ) just for a body kit and some rims and emblems... I guess you pay if you want something different...

I personally think the GTO looks... bleh. It's a sweet car but just looks too damn plain, now you toss on the holden package and it looks like something you'll probably NEVER see on the road in your town and that looks extremely good. If you thought you got compliments in your GTO, wait untill people have no idea what kind of car it is. I think the HSV Monaro ( in the Top Gear review/video ) looks amazing, the rims look great aswell, and my fiance agree's. GTO = Bland Design , HSV = Agressive Design

Just remember that is Australian $$ Retail, which includes our GST (10%) HSV parts are very expensive here as they are not mass produced like OE Holden items..

If you are interested in any Genuine HSV parts email me i will look after all you guys ;)

The HSV body parts are not cheap, you also have to use the Monaro's headlamps with the round edge since the stockers aren't compatable with the front bar.

I'm looking at eventually doing this with a new 2005 GTO.

I prefer the styling of the HSV Coupes, and it would be very unique to have one here. No identity change either since I would not be putting Holden/HSV badging on mine.
