    Holden VF Calais: question

    I know, Holden VE Calais had rear-seat entertainment (as option).

    Holden VF Calais has it? I couldn't find it in a configurator.

    Not as far as I can work out

    Pretty sure this used to be a dealer fit option and perhaps could be again if there is a market demand for it

    Caprice V is the only way to get rear seat DVD , or you can get DVD playback (whilst stationary) with the Nav package

    I'm not sure if there is a built in system however I am pretty sure I have seen mentioned on a brochure somewhere that there are headrest mounts that can fit either iPad or similar tablets. I know the Caprice V comes with built in DVD screens for rear passengers though.

    While I was browsing the brochure I noticed something else

    Now we all know that the manual trans usually limits towing capability but why limit the speed to 100KPH as well?
    seems odd

    Rear-seat entertainment was offered as an option on an official site Holden. Probably, dealers mounted it, I don't know. I was surprised when didn't find it in the VF specifications.

    That sounds really wierd. So does it detect the trailer and limit speed? or is it a guide only? mind you if I'm towing a car I wouldn't go much over 90.
