VY, oh why?

straight from the new wheels mag....

"how much do some punters dislike the rear styling of the VY commodore? Quiet a bit if you can believe the high class sydney panel shop who called us to advise they had a second customer order a VX bum graft for their VY SS. Price of the job? About $15,000, including repainting the entire car navy blue (a colour holden didnt offer on SS)."

what a dickhead - buy a VX and spend $15,000 on that!! (oil even)

My grandpa used to say watch out for people with more money than brains, because if you use your brains you can take their money.

but then you wouldn't have that fantastic VY interior or the extra 10kw of power.

Hahahaha. And think about it this way. With that $15K he could have gone out and bought a GT! A GT for god sake. Good point Gary I think this guy or girl has their priorities in the wrong place. For starters if they had that much money they would have bought a GTS.... "You sir, are an idiot!"
