If you want to see offical photos of the VY.

Follow this URL

click on Photographs at the top. Then select Commodore.

I leave it up to someone else to post pics in the thread.

I hope no-one else has posted this. I didn't see it in the other two VY threads.

yeah i've got about 90 VY pics.. all i can say is that i really think the interior is second rate but its hard to tell.. the rear end of the base models doesn't look as bad as i thought it would however, i do think the base falcon looks better.. really wish that there was that many pics of the BA...

Yeah I have been looking at them for over an hour and the interior is second rate to ours, although I have noticed the introduction of some very similar stuff. Auto lights etc. I am suprised they did not put on sequential shifting. The dash looks very nice, I am suprised to hear they have incorporated a stopwatch into the tripcomputer. Mmm I wonder what that will be used for.

Exterior wise, the back is really different that is all I will say on that matter.

The front does look very nice.

I think its going to be a very good time for ford oz following the release of the BA.

Now the proud owner of an AU xr8 220... OHHH YeAh

they seem to be trying to copy the Falcon (to an extent in the interior) with some of the colour choices and layout. Not to mention that green looks damn ugly. If this is Holdens 'barracade' against the new BA, Holden should be very,very,very worried. Even my Holden mates (bar two die-hards) think Holden have done "an AU" on this one. They wreckon the VT-VX shape looked allot better. I may have converted some of the Holden flock to the blue oval.

the cut out at the read is VERY AU with the flutes(sp)/design on the AU v8supercar

It's better to remain quiet and let people think you are a fool then to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Why does Holden have a colour called Phantom?
Described as metallic black with silver highlights. I thought Ford rerleased this name as a new colour months ago and as a purple ala the comic book character?

BOSS 5.4lt Quad cam V8 is mine

SS has never had a Amps gauge or an Oil pressure gauge, not since the VK or VL SS I think.

There are only 2 states to be in:
Western Australia, and pissed.
