Hi guys,

So when the VF was released I really likes fantale, but having seen it in real life its rather matte and boring. Did anyone else notice that the fantale show car was a brilliant glossy, metallic orange, meanwhile production cars are nowhere near as glossy or metallic ?

just a thought, I'd be getting Karma or Redhot anyways, this time around Redhot seems much classier then in the past.

cheers.

be careful red cars always fade faster than any other colour, the fantale ones i have seen here in Adelaide looks pretty nice and shinny maybe just the ones u have seen, the only thing i dont like is all the crome around the whindows and on the handles and stuff just looks cheap.

Current holden reds are cleared, so won't fade like they used to (pre- VY2). Most whites and reds are cleared now, except for commercial vehicles.

I agree about the fantale. I saw the promo car at Top Gear festival while I was there. Was definitely custom painted and fairly well finished. Totally different colour to what was released. VFs are full of peel and dust nibs. Worst paint holden has done in a while. I've still ordered one though... Hope it's thick enough to sand...

Private sale should give you mid 20's to sub 30's I reckon, dealer trade-ins are very rarely competitive to a private sale.

This is true, Although i traded in my 2007 VE Lumina for a new VF SS-V Redline and was offered 10k for it with 104k on the clock.. Just depends who you get & which dealership you go to
