The FG cause you can't put a Chev Badge on it!

One word VE's are gutless !!! My mate took me in his 6LT calais ve trying to impress me then I took him in the booster fgt he went all silent no comments at all lolllll

Guys, I intially went in to buy myself a VF SV6......dealer wanted $39 on road - and when he refused to haggle, his response was 'mate I have a 3 month wait - take it or leave it'......I didnt even en

If you leave your lights switched to auto, you adjust the settings in the menu on the ICC, you can change a heap of things like follow me home lighting.

The ecu will eventually adapt to your driving behaviour so if the old owner never gave it any then yes it 'may' be slightly sluggish. BUT if you give it a good bootful and try keep the revs up every now and then the ecu will reset itself. I'm no tuner but this is what Herrod told my old man to do with his GT so assume the same applies here.

And congrats on the purchase mate

Thanks, for answering my question and I pat myself on the back every-time I get out of the fg ( u made the right choice) :P

Push gearstick sideways in drive = perf mode, shifts are a touch firmer and it holds gears longer...if you push ford or back it goes to manual mode.

it makes my broom broom go zoom zoom

Ahhh, gotcha . Cool cool.

Thought you may have been talking about a secret button hidden under the passenger seat that releases 175 extra horsepower or something equally as ridiculous.......

Hoping that you were talking about a secret button hidden under the passenger seat......

nice read

Thanks, that's my review :)

Since then I have had the 270kW FG and then another SS which I am driving now.

I should write a follow-up review as the FG was a *very* different beast to the 240kW original models!

Early next year I will probably try the new SS...so long as they don't wind back the power in aid of fuel economy.

I am hearing all sorts of rumours and don't know the facts on the new SS yet.

Rumours include:

310kW version of the current engine.

310kW version of the 6.2L engine

No idea if they are true though.

It's a secret button that ejects your passenger if they are giving you the sh*ts.... :)

And when you come up to corners you give the throttle a quick stab and thevbox will change down and hold that gear till the g sensor senses the road is straight and smooth brilliant for quick driving and power slides on exit

my mate owns a VE2 Thunder and he often takes me for drives in it. He's a typical Expensive Daewoo driver to in the sense that he's always pushing it close to the rev limiter and loves to try and impress me given I own an FGT. I'll always remember a night we were hanging and I started up my car and he was all "is that it?!" then he started his car which has a cat back exhaust. Whilst it was impressive to listen to that was about all. Anyway we came up to a set of lights and it was inevitable that he was going to try and go me at the green. Anyway he got the jump on me but by about the 60m mark I eased past him and that was a standing start. Next set was a rolling start from about 40km/h and I chopped him real bad that time, a good 4 or 5 car lengths. Which needless to say put a smile on my face haha. He used to bag my car out all the time for not sounding as tough, which come to think of it he hasn't done since!

I do agree with all the above, VE interior feels and looks cheap as to me.

Well I was in the exact same position about 3 weeks ago. Looking at either VE SS or XR6 Turbo. Went the XR6 Turbo and havent looked back. Loads of power if I want it and WAY less fuel used then the SS. Honestly, I think the FG's look better then the VE aswell. just my 2 cents ...

As someone that has owned only Holdens prior to my XR6T I can honestly say I wouldn't own another Late model camira unless it was pre 1989.

For a car that receives more than double the advertising of the Falcon they aren't half as good.

Sorry but something does really add up there unless your calculating back from rwkw to fwkw they are advertised as 270fwkw and most get around 200 to 240 stock at the wheels with most closer to 200 so short of getting a freak motor I would say someone has already touched this engine or your dyno guy is using some very optimistic tricks

Regardless out of he box they do deliver the smile in a big way :)
