    Just spoke to Holden customer care online about my MSE and wanting a 7 year warranty, here is their reply:
    Yes we have had a few people come through about this. There are discussions within Holden that are going to deal with that, once a decision is made, Motorsport customers will be notified

    So consider my voice added to the weight of the pile.

    Director build number 332..."CALDIR"
    Hi

    Considering I own a Director with black side moulds that might fall off, I appreciate you adding your support!

    Hi
    I read this on the 'Motor' site

    Holden has confirmed it has completed production of its limited-edition Commodore Motorsport sedans and Magnum utes a fortnight before the company closes its local manufacturing operations, however build of the sports-luxury Director has been delayed.

    The final 45 of 1200 units of Commodore SS V Redline-based Motorsport Edition (MSE) and the last 32 of 240 units of SS V Redline ute-based Magnum entered production on Tuesday October 3rd and were completed late last week, a Holden spokesperson has told.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Hi

    Would be awesome to see 2 white Directors and of course other special Holden's together. I am actually taking mine out for its maiden drive this Saturday.

    Picking it up from storage at Moorabbin around 11am and getting the windows tinted at Bonbeach at 12 noon which I have been informed won't take longer than 2.5 hours. After that I am going to Bay City Holden in Frankston to pick up some genuine Director parts I ordered and then if the weather holds up might take it for a spin down to Mornington area...I can't wait to see my baby again!

    Regards,

    RTSV6UTE

    Hi

    An update in regards to more information from my Holden informant who wishes to remain anonymous. I was just told that the story of a bunch of Directors going to NZ and had the black door side mouldings fall off during shipping is a rumour. So is any NZ Director owner here able to confirm that their Director arrived in NZ that was due to have black door side mouldings but now have no side mouldings or now have chrome door side mouldings instead?

    I was told that the exact issue with the black door side moulds was the supplier of the part could no longer source the correct adhesive for sticking them to the vehicle and that Directors with black side door mouldings already released won't have any issues, does this sound plausible?

    Regards,

    RTSV6UTE

    I was thinking the same thing.

    If the limited Editions get it you would think all the recent new owners of other Commodore variants would feel as though they should be offered the same deal.

    Maybe time for the Redlines to put in their interest as well.

    Apparently people are posting online that Holden has knocked back the 7 year on LE Models before 1 October.

    Just checked with a contact at Holden and there still has been no decision made, so if you have been told No, then its not correct. There is still a decision to be made. So hold on and hopefully we hear some good news next week.
