Soon to be VL Calais
Hey guys,
I was talking to one of my mates the other day and he said that he saw a brand new Manual VE Calais. This started a small arguemtent becuase I was under the impression that holden were not making anymore manual calais after the VR. I thought holden may have put out a manual and i just havent kept up with the news so i have been searching the net but I cant find anything about it. Can someone please put this to bed for me?

Cheers, Anthony...

Conversion costs around the $7k mark, I had thought of doing it myself but I think I'll just buy an SS V instead.

Unless they've changed recently you can't buy a manual Calais otherwise I would have bought one :D

special orders are remotely possible, but i believe Holden charge accordingly if the dealer puts the effort in for a sale,

a guy at work had a vx wagon that was basically ss spec from factory, manual, 5.7, lowered, wheels, had a spolier kit etc

I think you will find these days that nearly all the work is done at dealership level. Manufacturing non RPO's on the line went out the window ages ago.
