I am interested in upgrading from the VF parts bin, how long after new model sales begin before parts information is typically made available?
Anyone started a wish list? what's first, why and feasible probability?
• Stop / Start - bolt-on electric steering and water pump, dash button
• Competition mode ESC, steering
• Launch control
• Lightweight alloy components
• HUD
• Steering wheel
• Rain Sensing Wipers
• 14" Brembos
• Park brake
• Seats
• Wheels
• MyLink
• Global A (Accident Avoidance and Park Assist)
• Antenna
• Tail lights

I guess it's hard to say without knowing much about specific parts. Who really knows what will fit cosmetically. Mechanically, I don't think they've really recreated the wheel though.

Personally I think I might just sell the VE and buy the VF, seems a lot easier than sticking part from a VF onto a VE and turning it into a mongaloid.

Mate she's a VE - she be born a mad, bad Mexican / Aussie monga, and why I think a set o' 14" Brembo heels, aluminium leggings an a Heads Up will sex up my minga.

I'll still be buying at least one VF just no wrong in maximising my investment... as time depreciates her I will not deprecate on her... she's a keeper (until series II then I'll make 'er walk th plank) Arrr!

Personally, I dont see anything on the list you have up that I need. Have most of it now.

Unless I can pick up a cheap 430kw engine:smoking:

The remote start system which allows you to start the engine from upto 100m away to either cool or heat the interior has a timer that will shut it down after 10 minutes.
If only...

The electric power steering pump and flashy dash button DON'T mean that the engine will stop running at lights and start on demand.
Too expensive, according to Drive http://touch.drive.com.au/#!home/review/4444363
It's a bummer because fuel savings with full sized cars can be around 8-10%.

Complete interior overhaul

Curious to know how much of the interior is interchangeable. Don't like the outside of the vf but I love the interior. Whole new dash with HUD would be on top of my list. Don't care how much. Just shut up and take my money. Mechanically by the time I'm done most of my car will be walkinshaw with some more aftermarket. Noticed when I started working on my car the more I want to do. This is going to cost me a lot more than what I've already spent.
