    To buy 12mth old SSV or wait for VF II

    Been thinking the same myself for a few months now also. For me the VF II is worth waiting for for my own reasons... 1. Resale value 2. New 6.2 Litre LS3 - no more AFM! 3. From info dropping around the net some of the Redline features we saw on Series one will be in the SSV standard. At the...

    VX Convert from Manual to Auto

    As Red says, sell your manual.. you will fetch more for it than that an Auto will cost you to buy. Manuals are a rare case to come by, dont convert it :(

    Hatch Not Closing

    http://forums.justcommodores.com.au/399988-post14.html I picked mine up for like $8 from my local holden dealer, they are normally like $12 or something depending where you go to. I just asked em for Trade prices and they said ok. Doesnt hurt to ask :)

    VT Rear end clunk

    Standard unwanted feature with the driveline backlash unfortunately, I have it in mine. I've learned to live with it especially with Manual. Having a manual more than makes up for it in fun in my opinion. Just turn the music up and cruise along :)

    Time for the new clutch!!!

    You'll have to let us know how it goes when you install it to your car mate to see if it gets rid of that excessivly annoying clunking noise we seem to all suffer from :(

    Changing the fascia

    It would be easier if you were to remove the cluster out of the car as you have to dismantle the cluster to change the face over. There should be two screws in the top of the cluster, then unplug the connector at the back. Im not sure how to dismantle the cluster to get to the face as I...

    Try this, I posted it up a few months back. It might be a bit easier as you dont have to pull the dash appart for the job. http://forums.justcommodores.com.au/showpost.php?p=399988&postcount=14

    Alarmed or not??

    Yes, and from time to time it doesnt start the 1st go but thats normally on a hot day and rarely happens....tho this time it was pretty apparent this time round driving to South Aus recently.

    no worries man :) Im sure a few others here have the same sort of noise with the driveline backlash, i guess its something we have to sacrifice to enjoy having a manual transmission. I know I wouldnt go to an auto for it :p ....... its just a shame, but from what I hear, the autos...

    Never actually had to try that yet to be honest, driveway is flat... I did get a rattle the other day tho while i was driving back from SA, stopped on a hill for traffic lights, hit the friction point to take off in 1st and it was rattling a little bit....... yet hasnt done it since that...

    Yep, know how you feel mate.

    Quiery for VX manual owners

    When you are reversin down the driveway and push the clutch in, does it clunk? If so, you are not the only one. I get it when im reversing, or driving up the driveway in 1st and engage the clutch. I find if i ease the clutch in slowly there is no noise at all, but push it in fast while in...

    Dash Lights

    I think you might find it a bit hard to source any of the original parts from any place but Holden, or a wrecker. Ive had a few bulbs go in my dash etc and looked around at JayCar etc and wasnt able to find any genuine parts or anything else that resembles the orginal globes and holders. I know...

    Quiery for VX manual owners

    I get it aswel when changing gears the engine holds the revs for a few seconds while gear shifting, i have no idea why Holden made it this way. Funny actually you should say that Ryan, I think at times it almost sounds like its supercharged, it has that noise about it :P haha

    VX manual S-pack

    Yeah when changing gears it keeps the revs ups for a short period.... No idea why they made them this way, helps with smoother gear changes perhaps. Dont worry about it too much tho mate, mine does the same 2nd through 3rd. How are you liking it so far?
