    Our new Holden SV6 Sportwagon!

    We've left the internal door to the garage open, so we can look at it as we walk past.

    Nice mate i really would like one but the house is coming first - actually the house is coming in about 4 weeks

    I'm looking at trading the Ute on a VX to VZ wagon in the interim

    Cool, nice colour and wheels. Nice shots too.

    I can bet half of Zeta craving GMI-er will cry over this horsie.

    Is the hood deflector for stone chips? You guys don't have that awful salty grit for winter driving.

    Looks like they may have flying horses though where mikmak lives.

    Those can't all be bugs are they?

    Congratulations... Awesome car!

    That is one gorgeous wagon! If only we could get our hands on one...

    I know I've said it before, and I still mean it: I really hate you, Mik!

    You had to go and tease us poor North American wagon lovers with your SV6 Sportwagon...

    Best wishes...

    When I told my wife that we don't have a G8 wagon (she loved my 09) she said its cool move to Australia to get one. I can't make that up. Lol

    Beautiful ride.

    I meant to ask Mik - does owning a new sportwagon make up for the Broncos loss?

    I think it is water not bugs...

    Nice Mik. Very jealous. Mine is coming at some stage although maybe a Cruze SRi might replace the wife's Berlina sedan and I keep my wagon. It will depend on the retiree discount muy father in law can get.

    MDL number plate?? How long have you had this car for?

    Those SV6/SS alloys are the best of the range. Great colour too, Sizzle right?

    Re: Our new Holden SV6 Sportwagon!

    Thanks gents. I appreciate the compliments. It has been a long time coming (I set the price about 5 months ago!) and being the tightass that I am, I almost stuck to my guns. I'm working OS the next few months so let the dealer have another 500. Most of the sale was done over the net and phone. The pick up was a 5 hour round trip to the Gold Coast.

    No, it does not ease the pain of Broncos getting knocked out
    Oh and Sizzle was not the first choice colour. In fact seeing a few on the net didnt do much for me, then I saw one pass on the highway and it went to no.1 with a bullet!

    It looks awesome in the Queensland sun with the dark tint. Just a shame that Mrs mak will have the keys. Meh, she deserves it. Anyone who washes my underwear.....

    Didnt you want to get the greenish colour? I cant remember the name of it.

    Does Holden give you a discount for being a GMI Mod

    Definitely no discount! I got my price through stubborness!

    My wife did want the Poison Ivy colour and we could have shipped it from SA but I think it will age the fastest.

    FromOz, it's an ex demo so has been registered since April. It came with 4000kms (but not a mark) on it.
