Been looking to buy a new Clubsport.
Just can't bring myself to do it yet as to me the new Series 2 looks well...tacky.
The LED running lights look great on the Audi's as it's integrated into the headlights not just tacked on.
Love the car and the features but it just looks terrible to me. HSV seems to have dropped the ball.

The series 1 looks so much better.
Should I try and find a low km series 1 or just get the new model.

Depends what YOU like.
I wasn't too keen on the E2 either......when I saw the first "images", but after seeing them in the flesh, I'm quite OK with them now!
So, it's up to you, as the driveline's pretty much the same in a Clubby, you may be able to save quite a few dollars with a low K E1.
Cheers, Pickles.

Front end of the E2 is fine. The arse end is the crap looking bit IMO.
I'm quite content with my VE series 2 GTS. But i will be slapping the big brake/rim package off the E2 onto it when and if i get the chance.

Speaking of Thor Hammers

Thor was sitting on the lofty heights reserved for God's when he thought to himself that he should go and service some vestal virgins. After he completed the job at hand he thought to himslef that he should at least tell the ladies who he was.
He announced to all, "I am Thor."
Before he could complete his statement one of the women said, "Thor, I'm not surprised. After the third one I'm a bit Thor myself."

sorry in advance...........:D

But seriously Matty, in response to your question "What's ugly about this...?".....apart from the fact that it's not white (and that's Heron not Alaskan)....nothing. It kills in my opinion. In a way I'm glad they didn't change the appearance of the WM Grange but I still would have got one if they went balls and all on it like the rest of the E2 range.

Stewie, white would have been my other choice. Now i initially agreed with everyone else that it was too much bling. Then i saw one next to a series one and the series one looked old. The E2 looks great in person and i think black is a little less "look at me".
Having said that everyone i know loves the car and in fact i had a woman next to me at lights who wanted it as her wedding car. I turned her down but then my wife kicked me cause i could have made a few bucks.
Theres a lot of head turning and looks which im still getting used to.
In short i had an MY09 SS with the L76 and it was ok as a drive( the manual was horrible for sticking), but this E2(manual with great gearbox, shorter shift and good clutch) is a rocket ship and sounds great. Best Holden ive had so far.

Sweet Matty but I reckon that black makes the ride look phsyically bigger and tougher. Not that that detracts from the looks. I love my white Grange 'coz it was the only one available and the missuss said take it or forget about the idea altogether. Hence my white ride:D:D

I like it in black as it does not look at fussy......if only I had a little spare cash at the moment I would trade up

I am waiting for another few years to see what the vf looks like, i dont like the driving lights, if they where gone, id be a huge fan, love the e1 ve's but those driving lights are too European for me, its a hsv not an audi so there is no need to make it like one and if Vauxhall and Pontiac dont like then they can swap the front end like they have always done! Bring on the VF already!!! Ve has been around for 4 years now, bit late on the update eh holden/hsv?

To be honest R34 i would hold off for the new model, nothing worse than buying the newest then having the new model come out a month later.

Do you know much about the apparently soon to be released gas option?
I believe it is a combination gas & petrol system.....ie, when you flatten it (full throttle), the system reverts to petrol.
There are some who think this is not the way to go, as there are other systems, which may have required a little more development, that are better, that run on gas ALL the time, & actually produce more power at full throttle than a similar petrol engine. I've heard that Falcon may be coming out with a new full gas (not their current one) system, but I think in only 6 cyl.
Maybe there is someone on here who knows about gas systems, who can say what the full gas system is all about.
Cheers, Pickles.

So you dont mean the DRL's right ?
Everyone should get used to DRL's because they will be standard on all new vehichles in the next few years from what ive heard. HSV are basically leading the way in OZ for this so i applaud the balls in getting them out now. :)
