Mind you , Julia Roberts , looks like a tree frog to me .
She has seen better days.
How many months does Holden usually take to roll out a cosmetic update (nose and tail) ??
Two and a half years VE SII -> VF SI
Wireless charging on Calais, Calais-V, RS-V, VXR
In this instance, I think any number of months will be too many months.
Saw a new commodore wagon on the road today. In white. Looked unsexy in base trim. Looked abit smaller than the ve in the flesh.
Also saw on the east link an Aston Martin DB11. Id prefer the Aston Martin than the commodore. The chick driving the Aston was abit old and cruddy with probably the sleeve of the wizard going on in the vagin. The Holden chick looked like a business exec so definetly hotter and had glasses which is kinda nerdy hot.
Unlike the internet there was no male baby making products splashed over the hot nerdy glasses girl on this occasion.
I saw a black VXR at the 500 on the weekend. I was actually pretty impressed with the look of the interior and exterior.
Mind you I sat in a new X-trail, 370 and Mustang so it wouldn't be very hard to have a better quality inteiror than those cheap plastic things.
The price is interesting though.
I see that the 7 year warranty is back again.
Can someone hurry up and crash their ZB so I can take its parts
Someone has to buy one first.
New models usually get crashed pretty quick. Give it a month!
I had a look at one the other day but it was not the VXR as that dealer was yet to get one. It was the Calais variant and it looked OK though I didn’t like that the electric handbrake release being on the passenger side of the centre console. Seems Opel/Holden were a little too cheap to make a new console with the button on the drives side for right hand drive markets.
I also didn’t like the fact that you couldn’t get a full size spare which was a bigger annoyance.
Is not having space for a full size spare going to be the new standard in new vehicles?
having a chat to a couple of former colleagues from the police yesterday , who have tested the new ZB in 2.0 turbo , which will be the general duties cars , and the V6 which is for the highway patrol boys , in both instances the ZB canes the VF Evoke and SV6 in every sense , and that's with all the extra weight needed for police duties , so if a couple of coppers are happy with whats on offer , maybe we perhaps reserve judgement until we've driven one .
OK, but the car still needs a rhinoplasty.
It would be interesting to ask them if their general duties car still feels so good after they have driven it for 6 months.
I would say they are comparing this brand new car to a Police car that has been a workhorse for a couple of years, or the 50,000 km use by?. (Something like that?)
Reserve judgment, yes
FWD's don't age as well as RWD's
No not at all , they were tested along side two run out VF's a Evoke and SV6 also in police livery , so they are well placed to comment on both the VF and ZB , any car will lose its zing after 6-12 months especially as police cars , which do get a hard life .
How many general duty or HWP cars are still active after two years?
In NSW, they were leased for 60,000km then disposed of through auction. In the case of HWP, this only took a few months to knock up. GD vehicles a little longer. This means that police are always driving cars only a few months old. Two years? No way.
They won't last 2 years
generally , they are fairly knackered when they are replaced , I can't speak for the Australian police , over here they were getting sent off to auction when they get to around 100,000 K , as mentioned , fairly knackered , as an aside , very easy to tell them at the auctions , plain white , or a plain colour , holes in the dash , boot and roof , and scuffed up side bolsters on the seats , and vinyl back seats on some , (easily cleaned) , and a faint whiff of Dettol inside .
Nsw run to 90k as do SA, Vic police around 60k.
