Re the rear visability... drive hard... drive fast.... then you don't need to worry about what's coming up behind you. Oh... there is that small issue with reversing. Screw it... only drive forward! orrrrrr.... don't buy one if you are the height of a jockey. (short people don't deserve V8's anyway!) Hey... there is an upside to the poor rear visability.... my wife doesn't like driving the car. Re someone's earlier comments about the rear spoiler being smaller on the 2008... That's cos the general standardised on the SV6 spoiler when he integrated the ute on the production line to reduce assembly time. My SSV was one of the first off the line when it restarted in Sept... and my Holden dealer rang me to advise me that they received a tech bulletin... and said "but don't worry... I insisted on the origional SS spoiler on your behalf." FYI- origional SS spoiler is 2-piece with black underside, higher, and more aggressive lines. End of thought. Bugger Off.
