Hi I was recently looking at buying a e1 6.2 maloo until the other day I saw a e3 black edition thought it looked amazing so I was wondering weather I spend that bit mor and buy a e3 and do it as a black edition
Just want to know people's opinion

My mate nearly signed up for a new E3 Maloo R8, the new pricing for the current my12.5 E3's are ridiculous so you'd be stupid not to buy an E3...or better still wait til the VF HSV is released;).

Maloos seem to keep there value better than the Clubbies etc. The new Maloo base models are cheap at the moment. Plenty of dealers trying to move them. Unless you really want an R8, have a look at the new bases.
What sort of money are you expecting to spend? That may decide which way you go.

That again is what you need to decide. Do you want a later model, and leave it alone until funds are better, or buy an older one, and do stuff to it now. I do prefer the E1 front better than the "wog" front of the laters.
Only issue is do you want a 6.0, or a 6.2???

I agree the only thing that made me go maybe I should buy a e3 was the black edition I saw the other day
But I think I might stick to the 6.2 e1 if I wanted a 6.0 I would just go for a brand new ssv
