    Riiiight.... :whistling Funnily enough, they probably would be as 'excited and appreciative' of the VE Commodore when it comes out late next year. The 380 is a MAJOR model for Mitsubishi, just like the VE is for Holden. Probably more so for Mitsu because it really is a 'make-or-break' model. And considering it competes directly with the Commodore should be more than enough to make people sit up and take notice. I for one am very interested in this car and would never right it off just because it doesn't have a Holden badge...VERY naive... :b:

    Hey u got it all wrong! I'm not writing it off because it doesn't have a holden badge, that means jack to me, hell it could have a ford badge and I wouldn't care. In fact it has nothing to do with the badge it doesn't have, its all about the badge it does have that makes me write it off... mitsubishi....... :rofl:

    The Series II VZ is out NOW. As of September 2005, Shanghai Red and Barbados are no longer available. Glaze, a silver with blue and gold pearl joins the range. The only difference between VZ II and VZ I is that the VZ II has no V6 or V8 badge underneath the repeater lamps. The VZ II Lumina is a matter of days away also, you can tell it from the Series I Lumina by the Calais-style foglights. Cosmo (the purple off the VY II SS) makes a return but it's Lumina-specific. There are pictures of the VZ II Lumina on the GM Media website.

    That's all I know.

    And your point is...

    The 380 competes directly with Commodore. Whether or not the Commdore is an Australian Icon is irrelevent.

    An AWD version is what I want to see them do with a turbo/supercharger.

    What's so dangerous about that ? Japanese manufacturers have been putting out 205kW FWD cars for years. I have very little experience FWD, but I know the suck. Just asking out of interest. So don't take anything to heart. :flame:
