I noticed one of the little plastic covers on the roof (for where the roof racks go)..was missing from my Omega today..I bet someone stole it..cos when I went to buy one (thinking they would be cheap being just a little bit of plastic)..I was told that they only sell the hole roof strip..which costs $35...now I know why someone stole mine!..I have contacted Holden and informed them that they need to sell these pissy little suckers separately to stop a chain reaction of theft...it looks like its guna rain here ...and it looks like without the plastic cover..water is guna go into the cavity..which I dont like the idea of...I put some tape over the hole for now...so...do I pay out $35...or become a thief..mmmm...tough choice!

Pinch one from the holden dealership, at least it will only cost them 10c to replace.

VS acclaim,
thief, paying $35 for a 50cent part is just stupid, think of what else you could buy with the $34.50

Buy it from Holden. Anyone who thieves or condones thieving needs have their car stolen to teach them a lesson. Obviously it pissed you off that someone stole off you.. the next person is going to feel the same. Don't be a c***, just fork out the cash and deal with it.

Go to a late model Holden wrecker. VE's should be starting to appear by now.
