Hey everyone,

Now that we all have details about colours available for these new babies, i was wondering what everyone's thoughts were on the option of getting what were once "hero" colours on all model VE's...

I remember back to 99 when Tiger was released on VTII Exec, Berlina and S/SS, (that wasnt pretty with all the black on exec's) but then holden got the point when they only used Hyper on S/SS in VX... and again with Hothouse and Cosmo on VY, and Impuse on VZ, but some genius(or not) has decided "yes, VE Omega owners can have Impluse! So Can Calais And Berlina owners!"

Personally, i think that Impulse should stay as a hero colour, and Holden should of spent a few more dollars making up a different colour blue to use instead of Impulse on VE.

Having Black, White, Silver, Red and Blue ONLY on the sporty models is bad enuf, without some moronic fleet car being the same colour as someone's hot-to-trot SS-V...

I would love to hear your thoughts on the matter - do you care that impulse is available on everything? or should holden provide more colours on sports models similar to what ford do?

Morpheous (the bright metallic purple colour that Holden applied to a few random VZ SV6's and S Utes) will be available in 2007, but only on HSV's at this stage.


Strange too that HSV are offering both Fusion (from the Monaro CV8-Z) and Ignition in their VE Range

Ignition is the VE Hero Colour - for Series 1 at least. Just cos Impulse was a Hero Colour for VZ doesn't mean it can't go widespread on VE.

All heros colours die a sad and miserable death IMHO... For my money, the Sports range looks best in Phantom, Red Hot, Nickel and Heron. Leave Ignition and Impulse available to ONLY the sports range (for those that want it) and exclude them from the functional and luxury colours. Likewise, exclude Provence, Red Passion, Vespers, Odessy, Evoke, Sandstorm and Crema from the sports models...

If I end up with a new VE SV6, it will be Phantom or Nickel.

If I end up with a new VE Calais, it will be Phantom, Evoke, Red Passion or Sandstorm.
