    I thought it was funny that the new director of Holdens stated last week that the Holden brand is starting to be really accepted in Australia. Sad thing is he was for real.

    Ummm der: what a knucklehead.

    As for the new VF - make it look very different to the VE Please

    Ari, you're a tripper.
    You like the classics which is all well and good. But I'll bet you there was someone back in 1971 carying on the same way as you are now about the HQ.

    Every model has its up and down sides.

    I like the VE external shape. The interior needs a lot of work though, better quality materials and stop those annoying little rattles, particularly the little removable tray in the SV6 under the stereo console. That really bugs me. The layout makes it easy to locate controls, but I'm with the 'let's get a new handbrake design' crowd.

    Eh? That's why diesels have won Le Mans the last 5 years running? Obviously you have never driven/been in a new turbo diesel powered car.

    They already did that, except they named it the FG Falcon :p

    I test drove the diesel Cruze. Call me weird, but I have a fundamental objection to a car which can't accelerate at all out of a roundabout in 2nd gear or higher.

    Your wish is my command .....

    New commodore will have improved plastics - much greater use of soft touch and non refletive plasctics, alacantra and nappa leather options, increased clarity of dials and gauges.

    A pillars remain as does the steering wheel. A pillars house curtain side airbags and Wheel houses drivers airbag, neither of which can be changed without resubmitting the vehicle for ANCAP crash testing again. Next revamp again.

    Rear tail lights become LED as standard, much like the outgoing statesman ones.

    Front grille in SS and SSV models becomes simpler and more evocative, and the styling less polarising. Extensive use of Honeycomp mesh. Rear fairing becomes smoother and incorporates exhaust outlets into the kick panel for a more mature look.

    E85 fuel option - for when the guel is actually available. APparently making E85 fuel takes less than 10% of the carbon footprint of distilling ordinary Unleaded, so theres a win for the environment.

    Read the new wheels mag.

    What happen to the rumour of the SV6 getting an extra letter on the end- V.

    What made the interior look outdated so fast was the one colour, black. And as bad as the coloured dash looked, in the end that looked great compared to all black.

    But for series 2, i was looking for more like this. I have seen the large round vents of spy shots- and don't like them.

    I'd like to be able to see out of the pillars, not bash my head every time I get into the drivers seat, and not skip the auto selector past reverse into neutral everytime I leave a carpark. Its still a holden, so I assume the shitty plastic interior will stay
