    MY17 LE Director....
    My wifey put it in pretty good context i think when we were talking about colours for our director, she reckons the white looks sportier and a bit more racey and the SOAG looks a bit more sophisticated and low key. Made sense to me. Maybe nitrate will be the best mix of both.

    Thanks for the pics guys, soag looks great, but it doesn't make the black roof stand out enough and make it ping. With the heron white though, the black grille looks huge, almost like an evoke, whereas on soag I think that grille blends in more and looks good. I think if they had have made a director in nitrate it would make everyone's decision easier, I've got a vy2 Calais which is quicksilver, looks awesome, never been totally sold on nitrate though, hmmmmm

    Does anyone know if the general public is able to view these vehicles? I'd be willing to fly over to Vic to have a look

    Does anyone know of any manual Motorsports left in Melbourne? I've tracked down an Auto but everyone is saying that the manuals are gone.

    I emailed holden customer care early last week asking the question, got a reply couple of days ago saying they will get back to me. Will let you know what they say.
    Prob wouldn't hurt to ask them aswell if your keen, might put some pressure on.
    I also asked if they could option up the big spoiler for the director :)

    Problem with Silver (Nitrate) in the Holden/HSV is the bumpers don't match the body, this has been a complaint for a long time. Seems Black or white is the pick for Director, admittedly you won't notice roof on black car

    I'm now debating on giving up the Director and going for a GTS.

    Yeah, I've been having the same debate for weeks. It's a tough one. As much as I wanted an GTS I settled on an MS, mainly due to it being the best performance Holden ever and limited build numbers. I'd have to go to a W1 in HSV using the same approach. I think the SE's will depreciate far less than a GTS in the early years. I think they'll continue to be sought after and hard to get. I may be wrong, time will tell.
    My plan now, is to buy a good used 2017 GTS in the future. They'll still be around in reasonable numbers.
    Oh and my dealer put me off when he said I'd be looking at $110k on road for a 2017 GTS.

    For anyone still looking, Hunter Holden have 1 Motorsport left in auto for $70k. Side note- the rest of thier allocation sold out quickly , said they only got 1 Director which was 'spoken for' last year.

    The bumpers mach the body very well on my Nitrate MY16 Redline, very difficult to see any difference so you need a good imagination. What doesn't match is the fuel filler cover. Significantly darker than the body.

    Just looking at this pic again got me thinking... Under certain lighting conditions such as in this photo, SOAG appears bronze/brown. Reminds me of the VE Evoke colour.
