2008 VE HSV Clubsport R8.
hey I have had my Clubby for about 1 year now.. I bought it on the 25th of jan 2008 :yeah: but one year later i need to repay my years rego and insurance... Problem! They are telling me my car is a 2007 model car.. why is that..? My VIN number tells me it an 08 model and the HSV plaque says it was built on the 14th of january 2008 and the sticker inside the LHS front door also says its a 2008 model car. I rang holden and one dude says its a 2008 model car so i asked to get put through to the person who first registerd my clubby the day i bought it at the HSV dealer and she seems to think it was built in december 2007 so therefor its really a 2007 model car...? what information is she going off to tell her its a 2007 model car while no information i can find on my car tells me otherwise..?:shutup:

it might be an 08 plated but 07 built?

the compliance plates only state when the car was tagged, so was the 08 stamped on the compliance or body plate?

This is interesting. My car has a compliance date of 9 Jan 08, although the id plate states Dec 07 build. My rego states 2008 model! Based on that I would have thought the rego applies to the compliance date! Based on the info you provided, yours should be an 08 model. Does you ID build plate under the bonnet state Dec 2007 (date built at Holden)?

This is the model change over serial numbers that I have collected. First VIN is almost the last of the 2007 cars.

hey i had another look at my car. umm on the little aluminium plate down by the air filter box the VIN says eg: (not my VIN)
6G1EK54788L938807 before the L it has an 8 and according to my cars owners manual that 8 means a 2008 model car (MY08). but then underneath the VIN on that same plate it has engine number, paint code number, body shape type, etc... then it has on it Built DEC 07. but on the other plates on the car, in the engine bay by the head light and inside the front passengers door it says the car was built 14th of January 2008. so what do I go by..?

I think the compliance plate is the one that is used for registration and year-model identifiction. In years to come, the dealers will identify it as an 08 model because of the compliance plate, I think.
