    Looks good - go for the VE.

    As u said earlier it saves you a bit of coin and as someone else said it give time for the bugs to be fixed on the VF. Go the Maloo now and trade up to the VF series 2 in a couple of years.

    The xr6t will make that with bolt ons for half the price and be much more street able.

    The ls3 wont. And it won't be cheap. 350rwkw out of a ls3 will cost u the better part of $5k easy

    With no lag and you can't say that there is no lag in the xr6t coz I've been in plenty and a 350rwkw xr6t doesn't go as good as a 350rwkw ls3

    Nice red 2008 Maloo at our local Holden dealer. Its a very nice looking ute, and I wouldnt mind it in my driveway. Only problem its a manual, and missus cant drive manual.
    Plus, she doesnt want to part with the GTS.

    ve series 2 ssv, better looking interior IMO, although the front of the vf is sexy... But get the series 2 and you will save some spare cash

    Lol they are on full boos by 2700RPM. They make more power earlier then a ls3 that will need a big stick, which will sacrifice down low.

    Anyways was just a suggestion. Sorry to go off topic.

    here it is man... there are no changes mechanically as of yet. ( meaning when the car actually launched) go with the maloo. unless you want all that high tech gadget stuff.[​IMG]
