    Hmm

    The dealer principal is probably right that it makes your car special/rare/unique. But they should give you the option of a full refund and return the vehicle or at least supply what you agreed to purchase.

    That rim is the same as the optional 20" wheels but with the Holden stamp and red painted ring for LE models only. Looks to me the optional 20" wheel has been painted with the Red ring too, error at the wheel supplier end. They don't come out of the mold painted.

    Absolutely bullshite. Our consumer laws state that their must be adequate spare parts available for you if you need a replacement, up to 7yrs I think.

    Post a pic please. I would like to show someone at Holden who'd be interested.

    What a load of crap. So no spares available ? Pity anyone who bends one of these then.

    ACCC would like to hear of this given their recent action against Holden. and Holden's subsequent undertakings to the ACCC which included an education program for their dealer network.

    I'll take a pic tomorrow in the daylight so you can see properly. Spoke with Holden this afternoon they said they are going to do a letter saying that it is a factory rim and as a 1 off build. They can't believe this has happenedand that it was virtually impossible. But it has happened. Must say they we're very appolergetic. Originally I thought it was the 20 inch rim from the SS option.

    The 20" SS option rim is exactly what the Limited Edition rims are based off and I dare say what you have received. I wonder how many more of the 20" optioned wheels have been incorrectly painted with the Red ring.

    Hmm

    With this and also the other issue of the very rusty exhaust manifolds, I am going to really check over my new Director before driving it away.

    Hi

    I wish it was, I have to store it in a mates factory till I have the space sorted. Anyone got a house with a 12 car garage for sale?

    I would have preferred an October build.

    Regards,

    RTSV6UTE

    I have recently negotiated a MSE for for low $70s drive away. Pay any more than $75k and you have been gouged by the dealer. But if you are happy with your deal then fine. As there become less of them left, demand my dictate higher prices.

    Those MSE's in SOAG just don't hit the mark for me. The colour in general (looks like shiny dust) coupled to red accents my wife described as " gross". Mmm.

    I agree that the MSE SOAG pictures posted look awful and I ordered an SOAG MSE but I believe this colour looks much better in real life. I am hoping

    I am hoping to pick up my SOAG MSE next week and will post pictures so you can have a look as I have requested the dealer swap out red DRL surrounds and mirror scalps for black that will be done under warranty (no charge) as that was what was advertised as the colour combo when I originally ordered it as per my post last week. It may be something you might be interested in also. I believe with that change the SOAG with the red decals will look awesome, but thats is my opinion and the reason why I ordered that colour. Everyone has their preference and I can't wait to take delivery.

    I'd just assume that at some stage the car had met a kerb and you couldnt find a direct replacement for it. Wont make it rare will just leave more questions.

    MSE #1133 SOAG, Daily
    I originally ordered a Nitrate and then looked at both Nitrate and SOAG in the lot on new delivered ssv redlines in daylight and the SOAG was a standout and the metal flec is larger and completely different to the nitrate io changed to SOAG , i was originally shown the MSE on Paper when i ordered in January and the soag was with black details and its now with red??? and wish i had stayed with Nitrate. but still happy with my order at this stage:) and the images that have been posted dont do the colour justice is also the first time i've pad $70k + for a holden. really don't want to be disappointed

    You won't be mate, I've seen a soag MSE and director with my own eyes, and the colour looks fantastic. The red looks really good against the grey, works well. In the full sun soag has got so much flek and really stands out
