    They must be big people I’m 6 foot 1 and easily fit in the back of mine even in the middle.

    Not sure why this needed to be posted in 2 threads either.

    I'm 6'6" and my youngest is just over 6'1" who is the shortest other than his mom...

    Most likely. It's not just about the head room, it's also about the shape of the rear door, it's easy for an able bodied person to get in and out but a person who is probably a decent size and not been the most co-operative is a totally different matter.

    I am 172cm and fit in the ZB front easily, but my mate who's the same had his head touching the roof in the back. And then another mate hired a ZB, and he's quite a tall bloke, but nothing outrageous - reckons he didn't mind the car itself but didn't like the looks of it and his head was hitting the roof... no way he would fit in the back seat.

    Nice to hear a good news story and that you're enjoying it. Must say the Calais V has a ton of spec in it and handles well which makes for a very enjoyable ownership experience when everything goes right.
    Hope my replacement car lasts a lot longer than the first one lol

    I would choose a refund for a major failure and an unacceptable delay to resolve. Then buy the 2 litre version which you seem to prefer from another thread.
    There would be heaps to choose from in stock at the back of stealerships.

    Yeap, that's a possibility but there's a ton of equipment / technology in a Calais V that's not in a RS so its kind of 6 one way and half a dozen the other.
    Lets see what offer Holden come back with and go from there.

    Yes, understand your thinking and that the dealer will delay things on purpose, due to the money involved.
    Myself, I would be livid.

    Thanks but I don't think the problem lies with the dealer, they've been good. Perhaps best not confuse threads, this is Paul's positive thread. Good to see him enjoying his Calais V.

    Do you use the massaging seat much Paul or does it just feel a bit weird ?
    What about how amazing those matrix LED headlights are that block out certain LED's so you don't have to dip your headlights ? It feels quite strange not having to dip your headlights to low beam.. I imagine that takes a bit of getting used too ?

    That’s cool, I didn’t realise the ZB had the LED matrix headlights.
