Thanks.

Forged wheels are a nice treat. Still no "confirmation" on HP and torque, listed as estimated. The color selection is limited, but I doesn't matter, Phantom Black Metallic was my only real choice. Hopefully, the paint is off better quality (more durable) than the G8.

Seems to be the case for a few here. I myself could care less however I certainly see how others would prefer it. I think the issue for GM is that manual trans car sales are only about 7% of total car sales, so for them it is a limited business case.

G8 Gxp wheels were listed as "polished" but they had a chromed finish. I'm thinking they'll be pretty shiny like chrome.
That's interesting. I haven't had very good luck with anything that's chrome plated from the factory. They seem to start peeling even with constant care. I would prefer polished but the wheels are far from a deal breaker with all the other missing "features" I would have liked to see on this "four door corvette Chevrolet halo car."

My GXP wheels are not chrome. They are polished with a clear coat.

They'll be polished and cleared but they do look to be extremely polished. I do like the large matte areas in the spokes, but given all of the other chrome on the car, I think in person they're going to look more chromed than polished, especially from a 3/4 perspective. I can live with them but I'd rather they were less reflective.

You'd better love 'em because aftermarket wheels for a Commodore are a tough find. The Aussies have their own ideas about what a standard hub bore and offset is.

The order book lists R8E Gas Guzzler Tax. Does anyone know if this references a certain gas guzzler tax level (i.e. $1,000, $1,600, etc)?

Just noticed that the polished/matte silver finish scheme in the rims is echoed throughout the interior brightwork and in the steering wheel. Holden does a great job on their interiors.

Yep can be found here too.

Select Brand - Online Ordering Guide

Looks like 3975 pound curb weight. I thought it would be around the 4050 of the G8 GXP. I'm mildly surprised.
A whopping 75lbs.

Not bad considering it's got more stuff inside of it.

But I agree. MSRP please. Stop with these little leaks and just get out with the price already!

I'd guess the same as the G8 GXP. Let me look it up or try a search. :)

I get a feeling they are going to wait as long as possible to see how the US dollar stacks up against the Aussie dollar. I can see them holding out until a month before it goes on sale here. Just a thought, hope I'm wrong.
