    hi I just bought a ve m09.5 Calais. just thought id show it off here. I only have the dealer pics as I haven't picked it up yet... the waiting is killing me though haha.
    Stock standard with 150,000k's on it. once the finance is paid off will definitely look at modding it..

    cheers.
    I did have my doubts on how nice it will ride and sound etc. no regrets getting it. I live 3 hrs out of Adelaide and have to go through the hills so I gave it a good test out. only used 30L to get home too with a good foot flat to get up to speed on the highway.. in short im fairly impressed.

    Does anyone know if you can get sat nav connected after market? it has the button but when I press it it says its not available. also head phones for the dvd player the manual says they are wireless, the car didn't come with any so can I get them from holden or somewhere? thanks in advance

    Got it home, gave it a wash and she came up good... keeping it clean will be tough as I live on a dirt road... white dust and dark blue don't mix well..
    also cleaning the dash with that kind of texture what are the best tips? cheers

    You should be able to get sat nav hooked up.
    Don't see why Holden wouldn't be able to do it.
