    Not registered as a demo?

    I don’t see why Holden would give a rats how a dealer advertises old, obsolete stock.

    Coz in Holden's world, VF is no longer new. Only ZB is new.

    Very good point.
    Plus the description which claims it’s new is repeated twice (without even a new-line character between the repeats) ... it’s like they got a monkey to type it.

    Well in that case, new old stock parts are just old stock parts - not new at all. :)

    Holden isn't advertising the car for sale.....one of their franchisee's is.

    Sorry, I'm with you now. Originally I was wondering why Holden would care how dealers advertise old stock, but yes, if that stock is listed as new, then that would present an issue..

    Don't mind me, just coming off five night shifts..brain isn't ticking over very well..

    If you could pick that up for ~$32k it would be an absolute steal.

    I drove past a Holden dealer this week and saw a new nice red VF among a few others. For a second it was like the good old days when Holden was still producing...

    Obviously we still have some love for the VF but buying a can that is almost 2 years past it’s build date, despite having only 5kms on it, will see your already registered purchase savaged by depreciation as you drive it home, more than is normal. It just doesn’t make sense at $32k.

    As is, a dealer won’t want to buy/trade such a vehicle for much if at all, and most private buyers would consider it second hand and want it priced accordingly. That would mean if selling later this year, the car would be approaching 3 years old and you’d be lucky to get somewhere between $15k to low $20k territory (today’s average for VFII evokes’s seems to be $17,500).

    So if you want one, haggle hard but be ready to walk away. $32k for a registered 2 year old car is simply too much regardless how the dealer tries to spin it.

    In the showroom of Central Coast Holden at Tuggerah there is a MSE with no plates on it! I guess that is "new"! There is a VN (yes a VN) Calais next to it in the showroom. Is that new too!?!?

    If it only has 5kms on it, could claim NOS.

    Ditto Heritage Holden at Maitland. Light My Fire HSV, no plates, iccupying pride of place in the showroom. I think I was quoted around $74k.

    I'm assuming at that price it's a maloo or clubby..?

    Nothing on their website.

    The 5km Evoke IS probably worth the money in terms of long term investment, not a daily driver's car. If the provenance of the car was checked and it was one of the last cars down the production line then it would be worth buying, putting up on blocks, filling the engine to the brim with synthetic oil (well above normal level), disconnecting the battery and then putting a full cover on it...storing the car in a safe shed or warehouse. Within twenty years the collector's value of the car will shoot up well beyond the purchase price and you will get a great return on your investment. The dealer is, atm, asking too much for the car at 31 grand. A realistic "considering new condition" price would be closer to 23 grand.

    ^^^^^ The only reason I can think of buying that and putting it away is that, when your current RWD Holden wears out in 15 + years, you will have a 'new' RWD Holden to replace it. Pretty much the same as buying spare parts now that may not be available in 15 + years.
