    Not forgotten, just poorly expressed as bid price+ ;)

    Many a business, even manufacturers, directly off load old stock via auction.

    Stuff sold at auction is not required by law to be sold with any statutory warranty. This does not mean the product can’t carry a manufacturer’s warranty but since there is the “added services” tab within the auction page, which describes the 12 month warranty one can purchase for ~$700, I’d say the manufacturer simply doesn’t want to provide warranty on this car (otherwise they would state balance of 3, 5 or 7 years warranty as it’s a positive selling feature).

    The grays auction page also does not specify who the seller is, whether a manufacturer, dealer or some third party, not that it’s really relevant in any case.

    So if you are thinking of bidding, talk to greys as they are selling it or talk to Holden as the VIN is provided and clarify the situation, don’t simply assume you have manufacturer’s warranty because of the newness of the car.

    Just received my insurance renewal and was pleased to find that NRMA had increased the market value of Motorsport to $75000.

    That is very interesting and quite unexpected. MSE is down to $64k on Redbook.

    Remember the higher value only helps when you claim writeoff. Anything other than your value replacing the car is not a sound financial decision.

    Hmmm. I recently got a NRMA on line quote for my CV8. Maximum agreed value $10,600 with a premium of $635. Country area with no recent claims and less than 5Km per year. No effing way !
    Customer service chickybabe who renewed my membership tried to sell me comprehensive insurance, so she got a couple of stories about my personal dissatisfaction with NRMA insurance over the past 20 years.

    Mine as well is having this issue and I've only just hit 7000kms, I own a XR8 Sprint as well with 29,000kms on the clock and is yet to make any cabin noise what so ever. I'm going to take it back to the dealer in the next few days and i will post an update once i know more.

    Bloody hell, just when I think I can rest easy, now I start getting restless thinking of this...

    Don’t want to compromise my long warranty - which was a real feature for me.

    But dipping my toe in the water with something like a cat back DPE on its own, shouldn’t bother the warranty. Do you lose the bi-modal feature by going DPE? And is 2.5inch v 3 inch only going to be noticed if you’re going to go for a full system including headers?

    No, the bi-modal feature was put back into the new exhaust, works just like from factory.
    Can't answer the second question, just don't know. I chose the 3 inch system with 3.5 inch tips assuming bigger was better (and for looks).

    Sounds logical to me - I think my wife agrees with that as well... :)

    Does it get droney at all on the freeway, or can you quieten it down by just selecting touring mode?

    The DPE exhaust doesn't really have much drone and yes when I select tour mode the butterfly flaps close and it gets very quiet.

    @V8 TIL 98 2.5inch is better for N/A flow, bigger is better generally for FI. BUT 3 inch has a deeper sound than 2.5 by a bit. I like both and feel 2.5inch is faster attack sound and 3 is deeper, gentler at idel but a roar when opened up.

    I posted elsewhere that I used Durex silicone lube. The end of the pack is perfect for spreading over the door rubber - it goes only where you want unlike an aerosol can. I figured that if it is OK with condoms it will be OK with door rubbers. It was on clearance at Coles for $2 at the time, so I bought 2 and I finally found a use for them.
    My doors on the creaky car have been silent now for over 3 months and this has been an economical solution to the noise. The other car never creaked after 5 years.
    I reckon I will get years out of the 2 tubes.
