Mate I would have to check if it is a GTS but I spotted a brand new white E3 in the Motor's Launceston dealership window tonight.
Long way from WA though!

I bet most will be back to you by 10am tomorrow morning. My enquiry about my Senator was about 1 hour after I sent the form.

Good luck :)

yeah is a 2010.

ok,. so another question, i dont believe there is any diff between the 2010 E3 and 2011E3

is that right???

the 2010 is about $5k cheaper,. and going off redbook,. there will be about $2k diff in resale after 3 years.. the sales rep told me that today,. and i didnt agree, but redbook suggests the same thing.

any reason why u wouldnt go a 2010..

appreciate the help, big call, which I've been workinbg on the weeks,.. finally found you guys who can help me :)

the misses wasnt much help,. and the boys,.. they not into hsv's

no difference mate. and you should be able to get a lot more than $5k off a 2010 plated car.

No difference, if it's an E3 it's an E3 simple as that. I bought my E3 Seantor in April and it's a 2010 build (Build #0008 Sep 2010) and there is no difference if you bought a 2011 today (except options of course). Becasue it was built before April I got a letter from Holden saying there is an upgrade available to the Holden IQ system, but that's it. If you go for a 2010 model you should be able to save a stack off the new car / 2011 price.

we know the e3 10 or 11 plate car is the same. how long do you think you will keep it. price a for an 08 or 09 HSV! look it up for yourself. they are not that sort after, Id go for 10% off on an 11 plate full drive away to start with. i guess an e3 gts is just under a grange about 92 so 83 cash a 10 plate 78 max with an upgrade. look through the posts on what people have paid and a few and how they have brought one. anyone out there paid close to full price for a 70-100k car? i got a stato WL from townsville picked it up in melbourne and drove it back to hobart. i did agree to pay $600 for the car tpt.

signed up tonight for a 2010 E3 gts, 77k...

all other car yards i spoke to wouldnt drop that low. the 2011 i got down to 82k.

it will be sold in 3 years after the lease is up, and will have probably 120,000 km on the clock..

looking at red book, the diff between a 3yr old and 4yr old GTS was a couple grand,. so made sense to save 5k up front based on the 82k deal on the 2011.

all done now anyway, and signed up... cant wait to pick it up :)

Congratulations mate. Sure you will be very happy.

Can't believe HSV still have 2010 plate cars sitting around nearing the end of the financial year, yet they are still only willing to give a 5k discount.
