    The only people that have actual sale-price data are auction houses & dealers.
    Even the rego authorities only have lies from people trying to reduce taxes.

    ^ Is the colour of your SSV Jungle Fever? :)

    Raaargh!! What is it about this VF that attracts so much moronicalness!!! I swear, we put all of about 6000km on it a year, we hardly drive it, and yet another ******** has driven into it today! It's not a major scratch & at least the better-half was standing there when he returned to his car (car-park incident - he has Regal Peacock embedded in the fresh scratch on the edge of his bumper) so she got all his details, but still, we had our VS for 10 years without anyone running into it!!!

    Yeah, well he’s from one of those ethnic backgrounds where people don’t ever notice what’s going-on in the world around them, probably because with such overcrowding in those societies you’d go mad if you noticed all of it.

    Side-note; Shannons Comprehensive now includes a rental for the length of the repair! Dunno if we’ll get something similar (probably a Camry or a ZB I guess) or just the cheapest transport possible (to be honest the 3cyl Mirage for $20/day I had for a week was more fun than a V6 Camry :)).

    Try for a ZB and let us all know what you think it's like to live with.

    Anyone know how to pause/play bluetooth via the mylink system on a VFII? I haven't managed to figure it out and use the controls on my android phone. Would much rather use a voice command/steering wheel button/touch screen instead.

    Bring on the times where everyone else is speed limited and my ancient VF breaks 165km/h in third gear.

    FYI, I've got a redline, so there's a physical NAV button on the console where there would normally be the play/pause button.

    I finally added the second horn to the passenger side of the redline today. I’ve had the horn for nearly two years. Thebolt was a bastard to screw in as I didn’t take the bumper off. I ran the wire across the bumper and attached it to the existing horn horn. Now I have the 400 & 500 HZ horn. Much louder now and like the series 1 VF.

    If anyone is interested, I've just upgraded my exhaust and now have some 340 HSV Tri Y's and cats looking for a new home.

    No external leaks, probably an internal leak. Head gasket(s)?

    It’s never occurred to me that I wouldn’t be able to do this (also Redline) ... but I may never have tried (even with the pretty bad standard system as fitted to the wagon I’ve noticed sound-quality issues streaming from my iPhone to the Commodore - so I usually put new music onto the USB stick fairly quickly). I’ll try to remember & have a look when I go shopping this arvo. There’s not a pause soft-key button on the Now Playing screen is there?

    *edit*
    Yeah had a mess around with it ... can’t find how to do it. I’m ... 80% sure the controls were more comprehensive with the Android ‘phone I had prior.

    What's a decent cheapish OBD reader everyone is using? Those $20 BT module ones on ebay works ok with these cars?

    Yesterday when leaving my parents house at night, car started up running rough, before "service ESP" popped up on dash and then CEL started flicking before permanently staying on.

    All the way it feels like it was missing 1 cylinder, so did a u turn and limped back to parent's house before parking up and borrowing my mum's car for the week.

    Booked it at stealer (still go warranty till November) to get checked this coming friday but would like to do basic code reading myself in the future.

    Car is a MY16 SSV-R could this be the injector issues I read about on the other thread...
