Why did you choose a VL?

Ok so we all know, that VLs are possibly the most controversial Holden ever made, so what made you go for a VL and not the other Commodores or even a R31?

For me, it was their looks.

I didn't learn they had a Nissan engine, until a mate told me a couple of days later, after I got mine.:)

Despite all the heat they cop, from the domestic and import side, I still love them too death and IMHO I still regard them as one of the best Commodores ever made.

Calais Turbo=Legend
Walky=Legend
SS Group A= Legend

Although i own a VH, i was seriously looking at getting a VL, but circumstances changed and i got the VH (definately not complaining).

I do like the look of VL's, except maybe the boot lip, i'm not a fan of that, but the Calais lights are awesome. The only bad thing about the VL is the crap people you see behind the wheel of alot of them (who think a big shiney set of rims is what makes a car).

Just my thoughts on the VL.

Reasons:
no 1) The engines are the best to be turbo/ or to turbo.

no 2) The look of the car of course, wouldn't buy a car that you think looks ****.

no 3) The amount of power you can put in2 them is insane.

Wouldn't that go for 90% of Commies though?

I've seen alot of idiots drive VNs,VPs,VRs,VSs,VTs etc.

I know this is off topic, but I was walking to a mate's place when, this dude in a VN SS, flew past me (Probably doing 120-130) and it was screeching up the hill. lol

I've seen him around before.

Certainly makes VN drivers, look like morons.

I don't mind VL interiors, too be honest.

You're exactly right, they are simple and not clusterd and IMO the star wars VK dash, is the worst dash ever in a Commie.

If people want to see a ugly interior, they should see the Ford rival of the VL. The XF, because that is one of the ugliest interiors ever.

XEs have better interiors. IMO

I just meant that because more of them are turbo's, they are more popular for 'street racer' wog types, i don't mean to bag out any of you guys and gals, you are exactly right, ********s drive all sorts of cars, but from what I have experienced, more VL drivers are tools than not.
