    On our build allocation sheets there are indeed June build special editions and the presentation that someone shared with you all (I'm still not sure if this was supposed to be shared with the public, but it's out in the open now), also confirms that wholesale of the vehicles begins in June, so if you live in SA/VIC it's entirely possible you might be driving one in late June.

    May build cars were allocated this week and I can't remember without checking the original schedule, but I believe June build gets allocated in a week's time.

    My dealer is also quoting a June delivery for my MSE subject to confirmation from the factory. They reckon March 31st is the lock in date for colour's and options. Seems a tad early to me?

    Is there any specific reason that the MSE/Magnum/Director buyers are waiting for to finalize on the Color and options.
    Is Holden going to reveal the MSE/Magnum/Director in all color combination?

    maybe the 1st batch, I'm hearing they'll start making them in May.

    I've also heard they are making them in one large batch in August, so who knows really

    We won't get the chance to view colours before ordering, colours have to end locked in by march/April, they won't be made till may/June/July/august

    For those of us who have ordered a Limited Edition whether it be Motorsport, Director or Magnum, I have just been told the following about reserving your build number.

    Holden hasn't got these Limited Editions in the system yet so dealers cant put orders in and cannot generate a GMON. Once these cars are in the system and your dealer can actually put your name against one of them, the dealer will then advise you of your GMON.

    Then based on your GMON you will get an email from Holden advising that you have purchased a Limited Edition and that they have your GMON, you will then be invited to log in on the private website set up for Limited Edition buyers using your GMON and select your build number. If several people select the same build number, it will go to the first person who selected it and the runners up will get there second choice of build number ( I believe you have to put in a preference from 1-3, but dont hold me to that).

    This email probably wont go out until end March, start of April. So hence why some dealers are wanting to lock in details asap, so people can get their order complete and get their GMON as soon as Holden release them so they can reserve what build number they want. You would hate not to get your GMON first because your havent finialsied your order with your dealer because he hasnt chased you up for it and get your GMON late and miss out on selecting your build number. That would be just a slack dealer.

    Dealer called today asking for colour preference. Really struggling to make a decision on colour for my Director, Black, Silver, White or Grey?

    I am leaning towards Black or white but I would assume the black doesn't actually get a black roof, it will just be Phantom like the rest of the car, can anyone clarify this?

    I do like the Nitrate silver but concerned on the bumpers matching.

    It really sucks that for a limited edition model Holden would not offfer the full colour range. I picked son of a gun for my Magnum as i didn't like the red mirrors. Really wanted white but didn't like that combination. LMF would have been great but they didn't offer it...go figure?

    Phantom is the black roof colour used on BRV cars. Calais look good in prestige colours, greys and silvers. Not a fan of black calais.

    Hope everyone doesn't change to Spitfire, after some comments I was hoping for some exclusivity. once you see it in the metal, you know it's going to look special especially with the black highlights.
