    Whenever I see Levorg, I instantly think of Grovel. Stupid name for a car.

    I was going to make a statement about these models also coming with a free mini skirt & makeup but I guess this is what our new car world has come too. :(:oops:

    I'd gladly go with BMW, MB or Audi but I just don't think they are worth what they cost. Plus maintenance costs etc. This leaves me with little room to move when considering another 4 door non suv option...

    Why not just keep the VF2? Surely fuel isn't such a big concern, or you wouldn't have bought one in the first place.

    fuel prices are incredibly flat, people seem way to eager to update cars imo. my car is 17 years old, i might trade up in a year or two they really are built to last.

    Fair enough. Things move quickly, who knows what options you'll have in 2-3 years.

    Agreed, for their first real foray into the performance car domain, they have certainly kicked plenty of goals with it. Hats off to them.

    MY16 SV6 ute/MY17 LMF SS wagon
    For the first time in many decades I’ve got absolutely NIL desire to update our cars. We bought them hike we could still get them for their uniqueness (wagon V8 & sedan-like handling ute) & usefulness (both versatile load carriers adequate for domestic use..one for the clean stuff, one for the tip trips). I’m hardly going to part with them and live with regret after replacing them with what in the price range??

    My advice to anyone considering getting rid of their ‘real Holden’ is to think very deeply about why they bought it. How many people on here do we read about regretting the sale of one of these in the past (& I’m not referring to the rare few examples that would have appreciated over time). I realise that financially it’s not a choice for some, but if you can in any way withstand the cost of hanging onto that V8, Monaro, Stato, ute etc while buying something else then do so...there’s probably a far greater chance that you will regret the decision than not... if you later reflect on the fact that you had a choice financially.

    I mostly agree but some upgrade for tax purposes although thats supposed to be 5 yr depreciation.
