    haha not that I'd buy one but I like the green over the white. TBH it'd be LSA or nothing with regard to the VF range for me.

    IMG_9956.JPG IMG_9960.JPG Found this new product on a MSE in Melbourne showroom, you really have to look hard to see the product, what it is ,is a clear film that's placed on all of the leading edges , and behind door handles where rings etc can scratch over time

    I was told to get entire car done ,ie all doors , bonnet etc, around 1k

    Hi everyone, have really liked reading through all the posts and finding out little bits and pieces about my car that I am hoping to take delivery of within the next 2 weeks. I just thought I would mention something that I found out that may be of use to any SOAG MSE buyers. I originally ordered the SOAG in January on the basis that it came with Black mirror scalps and black DRLs surrounds as it was shown when the original specs were shown on the website when the cars first launched. I later found out during the wait that Holden had changed this to red which I personally was not 100% sold on. I contacted Holden directly (my dealer had no idea) and I questioned this and have since found out that Holden were aware of this issue and have some type of bulletin that says if any customer questions this issue Holden will replace the red with black under warranty (no extra cost) and the original red parts will be given to the owner of the car. Im sure most will be fine with the Red and may not be interested in changing to black but for those few who might be I thought it was worth signing up and sharing with all of you just in case. Hope everyone is enjoying their purchases and hope time flies for those still waiting.

    Camden Valley Holden have a half page ad in today's newspaper (Telegraph) for MSE available for immediate delivery. I also saw a red one, some weeks ago at Windsor for $69,500.

    You do realise that Z28 - the only car under $100kUS has ceramic brakes like in the video I uploaded, fits our car, same spec as Ferrari, $5500US all round.
    The next cheapest is Audi R8 V10.
    so good value if you have the dough.

    So the engine oil cooler is getting all the heat from the exhaust????

    Gee. I guess the engineers never considered that????
    You can hold your hand near the exhaust and not get burned. Why? Because there's an air gap. The fins on the oil cooler dissipate heat, not soak it in.

    Probably not optimal location but I would question the efficacy of an oil cooler that size anyway...

    Hi

    I think it is in a good location as it is much lower than the top of the engine and lower than the exhaust manifold, and as we all know hot air rises that dissipates from these major heat producing items.

    The oil cooler looks to be an optimal size when you take into account the size of other "heat sinks" that are used in other applications.

    Regards,

    Yeah
    They're just priced too high above RRP in my opinion.

    Hi

    Yes it sure is, $67k drive away for a MSE is cheaper than what I paid for my Director.
