    And engines go all the way up to 2.0l bi-turbo diesel with 154kW, starting with a throbbing 1.6l diesel Grand Sport at 81kW. But the colours are nice and the leather is VIP.
    Looks like this Opel advert shows the market Holden is really chasing now. Urbanites that don't care about the performance, handling, braking or any enjoyment of driving, but what colour is it. These consumers would be better off with a car-sharing service :(.

    Sadly the Motor car is now considered a consumable and no longer an extension of one's personality.

    Sadly, as Australia becomes more urbanised and city-centric, all major institutions and companies will change to suit that demographic. ABC is a classic example -its radio and TV is so PC, left and 'progressively' Melbournised I can't even listen to Triple J or watch half its shows anymore.

    Triple J is more Sydneyised imho.

    I don't like the talking heads and their leftist views but at least the music offerings are better than the trash that commercial stations spew forth.

    It's based in Melbourne now though, that's what I meant. Yeah, I can't really even deal with JJJs hourly news: feminism/domestic violence, racist white Australians, immigration issues, gender pay gap, minority groups... and only half its music is worth listening to nowadays.

    In so many ways, I'm glad I won't be around by 2040. It might be sooner but by then, the Greens, the loony left, the pc brigade and multiple other organisations with their own weird agendas, will leave this country well and truly screwed.

    Too true. Look at the latest 'performance vehicles' ..... soot blowing, high riding, 4WD utes with stripes, bulges, and roll-over bars. And they even race them at the same meetings as the V8Supergokarts.
    What happened to low CD rates, disc brakes all round, low centre of gravity, etc etc …. I think I have posted this rant before.
    Roll on 2040.

    I saw a used ZB for sale nearly 6 months ago. I dunno why - could have been a repo, or deceased estate?
