    That's not too bad. The strips on the side are too high though. Worst one I've seen looked like that without the side strips, had mud guards and little transformer logos and abbreviated 'Bumblebee' license plates. Thought that was pretty gay.

    lol Id have to agree, Ive seen something very similar with those like plates haha I myself might go the anniversary stripes but more of a concern is what wheels to get ie black or alloy etc, I haven't seen anything thats wow yet on this colour for me to think seriously about.

    VE Commodore Series 2 SSV (Hazard Yellow)
    Hazard Yellow SSV Series II

    Hi Hazard-ous (nice name tag btw) I've only recently joined and saw this thread, I have a 2010 SSV SII in Hazard Yellow - with the track stripes. I love the look, mine is the only one I have seen in Darwin (where I live) with the track stripes. I haven't done many mods except I have a cat back straight through 3inch exhaust, and removed the rear spoiler, which I think gives the car a better profile than having the wing. I also have a ziggy's Otr which I am going to put on soon then get a tune. Hey where did you get the yellow gear shift knob and boot from?

    I've attached some pics (older ones with the rear spoiler, I'll take some newer ones and post) - good to see another Hazard coloured VE on here!!

    I would have tough that Black and Red fade the most. Has anyone noticed any fading in the Hazard?

    None of the VE colours will fade if you look after them. Black is metallic and cleared - red is cleared now too (has been since VY2, from memory). No issue. Yellow won't fade either. Just maintain it properly. White will still go pasty if you neglect it though. Proper and regular maintenance is the key to long paint life with any paint system.

    Ahh ok. I had a VL Turbo Interceptor a while back and it never faded. It just concerned me a bit what the OP said re fading.

    I look after my cars.

    Anyhow the Hazard Yellow SS is on order.

    Here is a set of rims that would look good on a hazard yellow.

    I will have my SS in hazard at the end of August - Cant wait :)
    Who does racing stripes in melb i don't mind the standard holden ones but I would like to have a look at other options.

    Just need to figure out what rims to put on it. Holden don't want to put HSV wheels on it for me.

    Well here she is.

    Signed all the paperwork, went though the car, ready to go, and then.

    "The bank funds havent cleared yet. you cant have the car"

    :ranting:Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh FFS what's with incompetence these day. I mean this should have been checked Friday. My bank transfected the funds on Tuesday morning so I don't know why its not in there.

    And no one has the access to bank account at the dealership only the Principal and he's not there.

    So i goin to get an V8 and came out with a 4cyl barina as a loan car.

    I told the guy you should not have even showed me the car.

    Manual

    I originally ordered VE Series II at the end of June when holden were doing the $40990 drive away price. Since the factory where not building the VE Series II anymore they built me a Z series. So bonus to me the charcoal rims on these look great.

    The pain of the story is I might have to wait till next weekend as am going interstate on business and might not be back till Friday night. I so wanted to have a bit of fun with it this weekend. Ahh well some one will get there ass kicked tomorrow when I call the bank.

    Woo hoo they found the money. The bank called me today and apologised for transferring it into the wrong account.

    All sorted but am not back in Melb till Friday night. Ah well this Saturday will be a deja vu.
