    Looking for a VE
    Not sure if this is covered elsewhere but I couldn't find it..
    I'm curious what kind of deal others have gotten on their VF's?
    Simply, because I'm looking at one myself.. Still a little torn between my decision though to upgrade or wait longer (maybe prices might come down.. ?)

    I'd like an SSV Sedan. But I'm curious what others are getting price-wise.
    I live in Mackay, QLD and the dealer here is pretty much... well, a rip off generally. They always go full RRP. Never budge and then complain they don't sell anything. (The salesperson actually complained to me that Holden fked up this round and they have barely sold any VF's.. Cos that's how you make a sale you nutjob?)

    I'd be curious to see what you managed to get in your deal, like exhaust, upgrades etc?
    Screenshots of quotes would be awesome too. (With personal details blanked out obviously) :)
    If this has been started already feel free to throw me the link!

    well I just signed up for my new Prussian Steel CalaisV VF wagon... got $13,000 off retail because its been the dealer principals mule for 4 weeks - as well as they chucked in tint, tow, mats. Its done just over 2000kms so its barely warmed over. :clap:

    That's the most expensive XForce cat back exhaust I've ever seen. Doesit have gold plated tips or something?

    Don't forget that the price will include installation at the $120/h (?) that Holden charge. I mean it will take a few hours for the apprentices to work out what the hell they are doing.

    Holy ****!!!! Someone paid about 500 dollars to much for a cat back! I paid 860 for a brand new stainless xforce catback! It will be going soon enough though!

    Secondly why would you get Holden to fit non genuine accessories? They're only gonna screw you for extra cash.

    I read somewhere that if it's installed before delivery, it's fully covered under warranty.

    Not sure how true this is?

    No aftermarket part is covered by warranty. And a catback won't void factory warranty.

    An aftermarket part should be covered under warranty from the manufacturer, not Holden.

    And why is it $380 dollars for an engine cover!? Please don't tell me Holden are cheap skating it on engine covers now... They already stopped painting them..

    Not sure what your point is, that is the correct amount of GST for $43k

    The only reason Rogan Josh probably did not pay GST is he most likely has a Vets Affairs Pension Gold Card, they usually don't pay GST and Stamp Duty.

    Rogan Josh most likely did not pay GST as his car was purchased under a novated lease. Rogan Josh is this the case ??

    Yes that's correct, not on a pension of any sort. It's quite legit and above board.. But the Federal Gov't (KRUDD) has taken the advantages away from those who want to do to this now by changing the FBT law. I got in just before they put in proposal to change it and back date it if they get into Gov't at the next Federal election.. :lock::banstick::rofl2:

    Also got my cheque for $550 today from Holden Ltd (Cashback as a Collingwood FC member) so it was easy to make money (cost me $50 to join) so that would be another way to get a "good deal"

    Without doubt they will come down. Beyond dealer discounts there is nothing else on the table just now. If you can hold out till the new year Holden will start discounting - nothing surer.
