    No way, that a great idea!

    I think its really cool holden are taking these photos and hopefully everyone gets their shots. I see some of the old pics getting around of xu1's, a9x's etc going down the production line and think how awesome would it be if you had one and pic's to go with it from its production phase! We will all have that :cool:

    Yeah I will definitely be looking into opticoating... still undecided as to whether i drive her back lol... if I did I would do it over a couple of days and roll through the gears etc...

    As discussed, I'll be getting a car bra anyway for long distance...

    With regard optician, how long does it take?

    Cheers

    Cheers.

    Might look into getting it done before I come home then.

    What are people's thoughts on the dealer's 'detailing process prior to delivery?

    I have read that some people don't want them touching the car in that way - rags / so sponges etc that have been used a billion times...

    If I am going to go down I can try and tie it in with a 'work' week away. so would have time to get it done...

    What do people recommend... it's going to be my 3rd 'baby' so I want to do the right thing from the start lol

    Thanks.

    You are right Zero. HSV is not listed in the VFACTS report as they are not a manufacturer (my bad). From my contact at FCAI, the holden Commodore monthly new car sales figure also includes commodores retailed to HSV in that month.

    Bahh! Pretty sure I did that the week before I picked it up, they still had no idea.....

    I've email Holden asking for them, dealers are useless....

    Yeah, that's what I meant. 30,000 cars to be built this year including HSV and exports, so that's 30,000 minus X remaining to be sold as Holdens on the local market. 1566 per month across 10 months of production is 15,660 units. Let's say they build some excess stock to carry them through to when the Opel Insignia is on sale, and call it 18,000? Seems like there will be unsold stock.

    What we don't really know is the breakdown of V6 vs V8 that Holden intends to build this year, but come December there will either be no V8s to be had for love or money and V6 models gathering dust at dealers nationwide; or they plan to build not many V6s and a stack of V8s and sell them all.

    I wish I'd paid closer attention to what was on my dealer's allocation sheet beyond the Redline models now :)

    Excited now, new LMF SSVR left Adelaide today and will arrive at dealership tomorrow, most likely will pick it up on Friday. Anticipation is killing me.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone, it really does look mint (amazing the amount of comments the red centre caps get too)!

    Re the Crystal serum (also topped with EXO V3), I had it applied by Micks Attention2Detail (QLD). Check him and his work out at http://www.micksattention2detail.com.au/. This is the second car he has worked on for me, and I couldn't recommend him enough if you are in SEQ and looking for a detailer you can trust.

    I have noticed that the Holden website has changed for the build and price function for SS's and SSVR's. Where for SSVR's it previously would give you a MRRP, it now says 'Contact your local dealer for pricing'. I guess that is a polite way of saying get ready to be ripped off.

    Dealership called today to confirm my new SSV Redline will be delivered late July, I'm happy to wait however I ordered the car 2 weeks ago, is this the standard delivery date. If they have so many cars to build why are they closing?

    Just a few questions.
    What month are Holden stopping production?
    With a delivery date of late July, I'm guessing the built date would be either June or July, do you think build quality would be compromised?

    My current 2016 SSV redline is sliver, I've opted for the new son of a grey, hopefully its the right decision.
