eek My new car, and its a Holden

Well, just had to be done, on the day I picked up the XR last week I brought myself a 2001 VX Berlina sedan V6 from the Government auction. It's a very nice car with the velour int, climate control, full trip computer, traction, cruise, elect windows, four airbags, LSD, CD Stacker, alloys.

Reason for the purchase. I wanted a good reliable car with low km's and some creature comforts. I wanted a car that is cheap to service, run, insure and looks good. I dont like AU's so the only real option was the VX.

Let the flaming begin

Hey why not dude if it was a good purchase go for it :)
Congrats on the purchase. Enjoy the car mate and I'll take the XR6 off your hands for a while (j/k).

Re: My new car, and its a Holden

Doesnt sound too bad.
As long as it goes, and can burn ricers its alright:)

Did you go to the Auto group auctions in Bently/welshpool? They used to be good, havent been that way for a while.

Re: My new car, and its a Holden

I went to Autogroup a few weeks ago for a look but nothing caught my eye. I got the Berlina from Pickles in Welshpool. Autogroup and pickles do half the Government fleet each now.

Re: My new car, and its a Holden

Good for you mate.
I could sense it coming anyway hehe.
When are we going to see some pics of the BA!!!
I've been waiting to hear how the beast is going, hopefully she'll treat you well (same with the VX).

Re: My new car, and its a Holden

Pickles are great mate, we buy all of our cars at work from them.

What did you pick her up for? Berlina's are an extreamly nice ride. What colour is it, and is it Series II or I??????

Hope it serves you well.
