what do you recon?
V8 SS.... there are no Manual Berlina's in the VT/VX range...
Why would there be no manual Berlinas? there's definatly manual execs with ls1's. I've seen them for sale stock as
i would go for a manual ss or exec v8. I have a manual vt 6 for sale if your looking
no longer a hoon by association - the commodore is gone
Does your partner want to drive your car? If so, you'll have to go with the 6 anyway, otherwise if the cops see her in an 8 she'll get pwned majorly. I'm thinking...maybe get a S or Berlina and do some work on it? Or maybe get a V6 Exec for now, keep it for a while, and then sell it and buy a V8 when your partner gets her Opens.

It is suprising the Exec came with an LS1 and the M6 though. Apparently it's much cheaper to insure than the equivalent SS.
I'd say go the 6, the insurance is much cheaper, plus your gf can be your designated driver.
If you love driving, buy the manual V8, but be prepared to pay the (disproportionately) extra insurance costs.
At the moment I would go the 6, but in about 5 years time (assuming financial situation is all the same), I would definitely go an 8.
