    yeah i though it was strange when the series 2 dropped the red stitching as it looked great on the series 1

    Surely, in 2017, there would be a live Facebook feed at the very least???

    Hi Timandhayley or any one else with inside dealer knowledge, has Holden given you any info as to how Thursday is going to pan out for information release? Times, live video feeds, press conference etc

    I bang my head against a brick wall at the stupidity of some of Holden's decisions. If chrome is still available on other models then why force Redline owners to have black, which many do not want?

    Idiots. Absolute idiots.

    Customisation = build complexity = $$$$ = less profit

    They could have easily left it the way it was... Chrome standard, blackout kit optional extra.

    Instead they've switched it around. The take up on the black out kit is very high, plus it suits the Redline with the black wheels. The only disappointing bit has always been the window trims, which should be gloss black, like we have had fitted on previous Opel sourced Astra's. It looks much higher quality than the rubber finished window trims they currently fit.

    Correct! They've tried to strip out as much complexity a possible in this final model year run. No more beige trim for Calais V, Calais V, Caprice V and SS have the same wheels now, SSV model gone (along with it's Sunroof/Bose additional pack), no more leather pack on SV6/SS. Other than the black roof pack on Redline, every car now has only 1 build pack and very little in the way of options.

    are you saying they will fit gloss black side window surrounds now to MY17? I have photos of MY17 Redlines and cant see the side window surrounds being gloss black.

    No, I said it was disappointing that they're not fitting them. They're much better looking than the rubber ones we have fitted on VF.

    All I know is Red Bull Holden Racing Team roll out in the morning before lunch and VF Special editions in the afternoon. This may not be how its rolled out else where. Could be before or after for General MY17 information

    I signed up on the special edition website to get advance info on the SE's.

    So far i have received nothing from Holden.....even sending something to me now is too late as the reveal will happen in 2 days and then every man and his dog will have the info....i thought they would at least send a photo of the SE cars to us enthusiasts that took the time to fill out our details on the website.

    [/QUOTE]The rare cars are going to be black roof Redlines, Calais V V8, SS sedans and any wagons and Utes. They seem to have prioritised Redline Auto Sedan build, but that's what sells the most and also has the highest margin for them.[/QUOTE]

    Thanks to everyone who posted on this thread. It helped with purchasing my piece of Holden History which is a Redline due in April.

    It would be interesting if Holden issued a list of 2017 V8’s manufactured complete with any options such as manual/auto, colour, black roof etc.

    I was lucky enough to get a black roof manual and would love to see just how rare they are.

    Does anyone know if Holden has provided such a list in the past??

    Wow Holden have produced a lot of MY17 so far. My car came off last Wednesday morning at 7.45 and was around the 2,800 MY17 built. Most have been sent to the USA from September. The VIN started at 300000 for MY17.

    Spoke to a dealer earlier today and he seemed to think they were getting 5 motorsport editions, they are not an overly massive dealer, but not super small either.
    A light my fire black roof ssvr in auto didn't seem to be an issue which I was surprised by. Going to see them Thursday so we'll see... He didn't seem overly knowledgeable in when/what will be released as far as the ME cars go so I'm hesitant as to the initial discussion I had and how correct it is....

    It also means it's harder to forecast final production runs of parts to their suppliers. Holden will be moving now to simplify the shutdown process and finish up part requests for the year.
