Re: VX SS or AU series 1 XR8
VXSS is more popular, and looks better IMHO. Actually, I think the VX is probably the best looking commodore of that body series.
And I better be the first one to mention the gen3's apparant oil problems - although every car brand has some sort of problem, its to my understanding that whilst this problem exists, its not a widespread problem, and if your future car has it, well so be it, keep your eye on it and its just another running cost, not some dire exploding engine like some people like to make out. Ford have had its share of problems before too - from the infamous glove box rattle, blowing headlight bulbs, failing power windows, breaking diffs and eating waterpumps.
Plus the VX is the newer car, 2000-1, AU is 98.
