Anyone know what the VX II is going to have changed.
It is supposed to be out end of this month....


How come Holden keep releasing new models so very often.
The VX hasnt been out very long at all!!

This is silly.

Some new colurs, some minor styling changes.

Apparently the toe control link from the GTS will now be standard across the range.

All V8s standard with 300Kw and HSV 350kW and GTS 400Kw - ok so I'm kidding on the power figures ;)

I thought VX2 was also going to get the 5spd auto, but havn't heard anything update to date on this. It suprises me also that holden release updates in these short time intervals. Maybe its just to get on par with Fords (and the rest for that matter) quality and the fact that they're making a fair amount of profit there for they have the resources to update sooner.

Any power increase for VX2??

So the new VX will be more like a VX 1.2, not a VX 2.0. :D

Holden only has to fix one thing. Quality. If they fixed that, Im sure most people will be happy.

VX II seems a bit quick. Wheres AU III?

Holden's have IRS - the broken diff allows for extra movement plus the floorpan bends to soak up all the bumps.:D :D :D

I wouldn't be at all suprised if the Gen III's power crept up by another 5kw or so to counter the XR8 threat.
