    Wink WN 1 Thoughts

    I'm yet to see any comments on the WN.
    What do you think?
    Great interior but still the Aug 2006 outer that will date more than any other
    model I think next August when the VF style update is released.
    I would change now but I don't think my 12 model has dropped too
    Much in price the only cars that have are wm dealer stock.
    I just looked at a caprice v. Much closer to the grange inside
    SBZW and heaps more now v model 19 rims etc.
    Best buy in the land. Shacks HSV W427 mint for 88k.
    Cheers andrew

    I am of the belief that there will not be another LWB model til the new engine . . . This could be August but I doubt it . . . as it apparantly will marry up with VF2 . . .

    I may have been told a tall story someone that buys lots of Granges in perth
    told me the O/S model already has rear wrap around lights and a different front end closer to the VF.
    As for the engines I heard Holden will end up with the 6.2 not so sure of my info now though.
    cheers Andrew.

    I would like a fair price/trade after 12 months like my last two granges
    the longer I wait for "'last years plate or a damaged demo"' the greater the
    chance of not buying, or going back to cost price stock VF and getting
    some add on HP...... 23% off a stock V8 or about 4% off a HSV I guess GHM don't mind///

    LWB is not doing so well
    still no changes apart from 340kws in power
    I wonder if their is a cheap option to up the power on a car that is not selling
    add more air intake grill like the VF GTS to the front, find a smaller lower blower that would fit in the engine bay
    of the WM. Hard when sales are low. I'd still love to buy another Grange.

    L99 (ls3 auto) would make sense with VVT for Luxo power and AFM for chauffeur's efficiency.

    The L99 only has about 300kw (VF2), the Grange has 340 and that's just not cutting it now.
    sales are very low, almost half from a few years ago, so any big changes will not happen unless HSV can get an
    off shore deal, too late for that. The problem also could be the LSA will not fit under the Grange lid. A carbon bonnet would fix that but I doubt the Grange would then have any profit with an LSA fitted.
    I would like to see the Grange front bumper redone. Also an intake/tune/partial exhaust to see 380fwks.
