the red color really compliments the car... the steering reminds me of the new civic.. and nothing to beat the instrument cluster... overall awesome lookin

Commodore's are nice...big, sturdy and powerful.

My favourite HSV is still the Monaro though, especially the full blown Monster Monaro version!

Not surprising because the Monaro/Commodore/Lumina/Pontiac GTO is based on an old Opel Omega platform.

Awesome! Always loved the Commodore and this one's great too. Don't know what's happened to its price now, but, I hope Holden sticks to simple engineering and dosen't use stupid and over-complicated electronics like the Germans and Brits. Let's have a car and not a robot to drive.
Would love to see Mark Skaife win the Bathurst 1000 in one of these.

i love the ss but surely will be holding the market in aussie land as most likely ford is wrapping up the sales in australia due to non availability of parts.
