    What will you replace your HSV with?

    my daily driver will go another 2 years before i change it out, though the mind wanders early.

    not much out there for the money that can match the LSA HSVs....

    maybe an Alfa Giulia,

    or something German. its a scary world out there with no new HSVs to buy

    G'day Brett, you make a very good point.
    I'll be needing a bigger car (Golf R is my daily, HSV is the toy) next year & yep, it is scary.
    A small(ish) SUV that has the same performance as the R is about $130k new (ie, macan GTS), that is double the cost of a Golf R. Other than a bigger boot, the internal size is the same as a Golf.
    Sedan / wagon wise it is much the same (cost vs size vs performance).
    Gives me the shits but anyway...

    In the same boat as Jim, Golf R daily and HSV toy. I will probably just update the R every 3 or so years depending on kms, the HSV on the other hands probably wonít be swapped out until HSV can offer something new with the performance of the last GenFs. 2 door will be fine as itís just for fun.

    Wifey has an RS3 which is our everydayer, the HSV does a few ks too, but not as an everydayer.
    As we've just bought our HSV I suppose I'm not too concerned about what they bring out next, but knowing HSV I'd say that they know their traditional buyer market very well, and as HSV never stand still,.....well I'll put the question to you guys!!,.... what do you guys think they should, or will, come up with?

    If I sold my hsv today and had to buy another sports car, id go for a Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio. You can get a near new one for around $110k which is good buying for how fast and nice the car is.

    But for me, most likely i will just buy a new 200 series land cruiser and get out of the 'sports car scene' all together. Although, I said this before my clubsport and here I am again ahaha.

    I think once Holden goes under and is replaced by Chev/Caddy and GM build their cars factory RHD. HSV will be back in its comfort zone either bringing inthe higher spec models or upgrading whatís on offer. Also depends if Chev/Caddy want to play with HSV as Holden did, or will they just do it themselves

    Another HSV. It's why I haven't rushed into an F-series. Life is swings and round-abouts though, financial situations can change in an instant. Ideally I can sit it out till a CTS-V lands.
    I have a work car and fuel card atm so my GTS rarely gets driven. So my desire to upgrade just isn't really pressing me enough to bother filling out the paper work. lol

    I've added a motorcycle to the garage so the "daily" has become a "weekly" or weekender. The old taxi ain't going anywhere.

    If the Caddy doesn’t poke its head out in OZ I’ll probably go a low k C63S. Note a fan of the go-cart roughness of the ride but in fairness I don’t drive my ‘good’ cars daily.
