hey guys,
i get off my P's in January which means i can finally get a big thumping 8. i cant decide between a normal SS or a HSV. I want the VX shape and a manual so the difference in the interior will be shite all and i already know where everything is. If i decide on the SS than my choices are limited but i want to know what kinda HSV's were available around that time and which ones were the pick of the bunch. Any answers are a huge help as past 3.8 liters i get into the unkown.

cheers guys.

If you want a HSV then buy one. I don't think the price premium is worth it for what you got back then however it's your car - buy what you want.

something black
not just the price premium on the purchase but the insruance hike over an ss

i'm 24 and insurance on an hsv is 4k vs the 900 i'm paying for my ss

Get the SS and spend the insurance change on your new baby

Dont rush into it man. There are manual Monaros around they are just harder to find. But think of that as a positive in that you will then own a harder to find car. Ive bought and sold many cars and the best piece of advice id give anyone is dont get caught up in the excitment of getting something new and rush into a purchase. :)
