    I am genuinely impressed with the VF2. These are great cars. Pretty swift and the handling for a wagon is respectable.
    I guess a wagon can handle!!

    Picked it up today.
    I love this car. I know it’s a new toy but they did really well with this final version of the commodore.
    It’s fast enough to be fun. The suspension is actually better than euros I’ve had before as I guess it was built for our roads etc.
    Took it for a drive in the hills and it was great fun.
    Not as direct as my old WRX but much more comfortable and all that power makes it an easy drive.

    I’ve driven mine about 1500km around Victoria in the past week and it just eats up country roads like...well, like it was designed for them and developed on them.

    I’m sure you’ll love it.

    I drove a Hyundai I30 up in qld for a week last week. Did several trips from Gold Coast to the Sunshine Coast. Get back to Melnourne and sat in the wagon, and realised just how uncomfortable these seats are. That side bolster is just dumb the way it pokes into your legs.

    Really? Is yours an MY13 with the bigger side-bolsters on the base? The nopix’ MY14 is superbly comfy seat-wise for me.

    ^ Yeah but you’re the only source of the juices on your seats from ‘making out’ in it ... KwiKJim will never know who belongs to the juices he’s sitting in.

    Ha! It came with some shitty seat covers on the front seats so I hope they absorbed some of those "juices". The seats are unmarked (but I'm not taking a UV light to them)

    The car has been awesome. No decent burnouts yet. I have gotten it pretty sideways a few times. I made my workmate giggle when we left the hospital sideways. The ambo's behind us weren't as impressed....
    Its great when 2 of my colleagues have Tesla's (model X and S) and both of them want to swap for a day.

    Well 2019 - 2 <> 2013.
    I’m surprised though, there’s not that much bolstering on the base.

    VF2 seats are not much good. VE seats were much better for long distance comfort. They’re the only really disappointing aspect of the car.

    The theory among the tinfoil-hatters about Redline seat-base bolstering is that a lot of the VF ones were wearing prematurely due to people sitting on the bolster while getting in; and that, rather than improving trim materials, Holden instead made the bolsters a lot smaller for MY14.
