VY II Calais...

Has anyone seen the pictures of this on carpoint? Are those mags straight from the AUII XR8 or what? And those tail-lights look awfully AU-ish as well... What do people think?

Just when i thought the VY couldn't get any uglier, Holden releases the VYII. Yep, those rims look very similar, though not as nice

thats unbelievable!!!..how can they do that!

First magna lights now AU?? This is BS. And the rims! Usually holden is on top with rim design but thats just lazy.

Now its either hodlen are a boring conservative bunch of lazy buggers, or they are having cash flow problems. The only big projects they have at the moment would be the adventura and rebadging euro box's.

But I must say it doesn't look that bad...but it has a genIII so ill stop there. When does the GenIV come out?..with VZ? Sorry I dont want to change the topic.

Re: VY II Calais...

I love the Purple SS.

The colour really suits the car.
