Good clip . There is nothing better than a good day at the track.
Indeed ... nearly 8 minutes of someone smashing you in the ghoulies with a sledge, doesn’t sound like much fun to me!
‘Cos the unspoken yet obvious truth is if a GLC-anything did it in X minutes, a C-anything with even half the momey spent on it would do it in X minus 45sec ... it’s just not physically possible for any gerlytruk to be anything but inferior to the real car it’s based on.
I have never heard of that. And none of the part numbers fit that description either. Would be interested to see where you read that. It would be very handy at night too
Google "chevy ss dimming side mirror" to the rescue

Chevy SS Owners Manual
Gospel is obviously GM's manual which lists drivers side exterior mirror auto dims but I didn't read the whole manual as I already know we've been short changed on features.
It feels gauling enough that the last of the Chevy SS' had features that were lacking in out MSE's while the Chevy SS' supposedly sold for a 20% discount to quickly clear inventory that i didn't want to clearify how many features we missed out on... Meanwhile some Holden dealers are still dreamn...
GM follows Trumps "America first" doctrine while our own Holden screws us on price and lacking features meaanwhile, some Holden dealers are still price dream'n
So only the US drivers side.
It looks like they are trying to see if our passengers side dims so they can get both.
I think you mean the US guys are wanting to get out drivers side auto dipping exterior mirror so they can mod their passenger external mirror to get two working external auto dipping mirrors. Problem is, did any Aussie Calais/Director or even Caprice get auto dipping external mirrors? I think not but not 100% sure
Your right I reckon
Never seen it here
I’ve never understood the idiotic logic of only an internal auto dimming mirror on supposed upmarket cars as anyone who has driven on a multi lane highway would know you can be blinded by both left and right external mirrors and the internal rear vision mirror.
If the manufacturers and regulators didn’t have their collecting heads up each other’s back passage, all cars would have had these as a safety item years ago (along with mandatory reverse cameras which would have saved countless toddlers from being killed).
Some owners in the US seem to want to fix GM/H’s deficiencies but without the parts, something about pushing and hills comes to mind. I wish them luck though.
I just got the agreed value insurance policy renewal from Shannons, and to check whether the agreed value was going to be OK I had a squiz at CarSales; just to see what VF Redline wagons were sitting at.
I'm a tad surprised by how exxy they currently are. This would have to be the best used-market value anyone's ever seen on a ~5yo Holden-badged (so the unusual stuff from HSV not included) Holden, surely? Even in the late 80's Inflation Era I don't think they'd have held their value as well as at the moment?
What they're asking and what they actually sell for are two different things though. Most sellers on carsales factor in a few thousand for 'wiggle room'
I wish carsales had the ability to search for ended/sold listings like eBay does. That would give a much more accurate snapshot of a vehicles value.
Oh yeah, for sure, but the asks for <40k km VF's are still ~$42k - ~$45k, even knocking $5k off that's a lot more than a 5yo Commodore traditionally used to sell for.
Fair point. Goes to show what a cracking car the VF is I reckon..!
I've been keeping a close eye with <10,000km Redline sedans. They range from about 51 to 65 on carsales. Some people don't realise these things are at least 2 years old...
Those sellers on carsales asking big prices reminds me of hopefully fishermen wanting, waiting to catch that big fish. Just fishermen in disguise Sadly there is just too much emotion with some private sellers who think denial is just a river in Egypt. Luckily there are more level headed sellers out there
Wish actual sold prices were documented and kept online for research purposes so people’s emotions can be countered with logic. But carsales and it’s ilk won’t relinquish such data. Some comment about mushrooms and the dark may be appropriate.
How would they even hold that data ?
Person A lists car for sale.
Person B purchases car.
Ad is deleted.
I watched a govt auction yesterday 1/3 of cars sold rest refer or passed in. Sold my px ranger after being for sale for 3 months at reasonable price. Vf evoke 17 police packs with touch over 100k going for 11.5k
I understood fees were paid for having the add on some web sites and it was based on the sale price not the advertised price. If so, the website would need to be informed. Thought carsales commissions were sales price based but I could be wrong.
In any case, no online business deletes the data they gather. They may make such data no longer available or accessible to the public but that is completely different to deleting data.
My carsales ss was listed for $36. <20k km in adelaide too. Saw a repaired write off ssv for $30 and maybe one or two other cheaper back in august.
My understanding is carsales charges an upfront ad fee until the car is sold.
Once the car is sold, the user simply deletes the ad with no input on the sale price (or at least that's how it worked last time I advertised on there).
I'm sure they retain whatever data they collect (I never referred to it being deleted, just the user deleting the ad).....I just don't see how they have the sold data to retain in the first place, unless they are capturing that via the various state rego departments from transfer forms (like CoreLogic does for real estate).
