Tyres wise, HSV low profile 19" pirellei's are costingv about $650 each corner, and they only last 20-25000 km's.
That is outrageous, and that is one of the reasons i am looking elsewhere.

As for the Diesel i drove both Petrol and diesel and the diesel had more power, it suprised me the performance it did have, i was impressed, they tell me the new 530 diesel is a powerhouse.

I have been coping a bit of flak from the Holden forum saying i am jumping ship, as much as the new VE is a great car, there is nothing i think that compares with what we have looked at.

Cheers
Scott

yeh, the prices of tyres suck for decent ones i got hit with high prices when i bought the bigger wheels

the 5 series diesel IS something i can comment on... i was surprised at the power of the car... it was a nice drive
