    Really? I feel a lengthy rebuttle coming on...Personally I love the look of all three. What I also like is the different highlights depending on the paint colour.
    We all remember when the VF was revealed and many commented they were ugly, or resembled a Mazda 6 or Camry. Anyone would have thought it was an AU Forte! Now the vast majority love the look of VF's. Change is rarely embraced with initial enthusiasm I guess. But, I applaud Holden for making significant enough visual changes to set them apart. My VF Redline is only distinguishable from SSV's or SS's due to a Red V on the boot and the chrome forged wheels. But it drives vastly better amd the luxuries etc are great!
    Re the Calais' distinguishability, I reckon it was the VT Calais which was hard to tell apart from its garden variety brethren. As for the Director. Sublime! It looks fantastic I reckon.
    Aesthetic preference will always spark debate. Some like brunettes, some like blondes, some like...let's not got there
    But it's what's beneath the skin that has me drooling. A non HSV Holden, with GM L3 Track Certification, extra features, interior upgrades, paying homage to classic Brock Commodores, and the great man himself and only available in limited numbers! They can bury me in mine mate.

    Just had a muppet dealer quote me $95k for a director that I left a deposit on last week. He can stick the director directly up his a$$!

    Seriously? What a flog. These predatory pricks have zero business acumen. They don't stop to realise how many future sales they're costing themselves.

    MY17 LE Director....
    The reason the calais dont stand out as much from the base models now is because even the base models look bloody good now, its not a bad thing....

    If I fancied a car with 4 doors, the Director would be the one...

    No Joke mate. He emailed it too. Said first in best dressed as he had a few interested. When I told him to stick it he then asked at what price I'd be interested. Flog

    Unusually I totally agree! They are just parts bin specials with awful colour coding on some of the plastic bits. MRC is great in practice, but adds more weight and from those with VE's have had a high rate of leakages with this system. US SS seats are cool though, but over all it's really just expensive sticker packs etc. that many can do to there on ride easily to make it look the same. Now if it came with a LSA that would be a different story....

    That's bloody unaustralian asking that kinda money I hope he doesn't sell it.

    Love the look of the VF. Just think if i were paying top dollar for a Calais, you'd want it distinguishable from the pov packs.

    Had a VF2 Calais hire car recently. It was very underwhelming
