i think a tray inplace of the back doors and boot would be good. :p

but yeah, get rid of the green light dash. as for changing things at the last minute, the monaro was going to have cupholders in the centre console like the standard vx, up until about a month before release, then over night, changed their mind and put in the storage compartment.

so some feedback can work.

I'm sure there'd have to be someone employed somewhere in Holden that looks through websites and reads all the magazine articles, takin notes of everyone's opinions on the good and bad. If not, I'll do it in my spare time for them, I read as much of these things as I can anyway! I'd be cheap.....say.....a new car each year.....for the job of course....that way I can also give them feedback on that specific car too.... Surely they can't refuse an offer like mine....

Around 5 to 6 months before the VE is unleashed....I wonder what scope, if any for last minute design changes.

You'd like to think that free feedback such as on this thread would have some hope of making it;s way to those who can make a difference.

Also wonder at what stage production starts on the VE - 5 months, 4 months 1 month before launch?

OH YEAH...

How bout a Traction Control button that stays on / off (depending on where you left it) when you re-start the car, and a Power button that always resets to "Off" when you re-start the car?? Instead of the other way around Holden??

I hate the traction control and want it to ALWAYS stay off, not come back on every time I start up.

I also like to drive easy whilst the car is warming up, so I'd like the Power button to default back to "off" when I start her up.

IMO Holden have got this totally wrong!! :bang:

How about this cause I'm the same i like to warm the car before i got anywhere then drive easy for 10 or so min.
I seen it on a BMW it was a light count down till it was around running temp, That is good for people who don't like to drive it hard when it's only just 5-10 of running time.

the tyre companies are gonna be happy, Tyres cost enough as it is. 17s should be standard with 18s or 19s optional. Practicality cannot be ignored for the sake of cosmetics. I'm gonna cop it for this but i still believe it.
