    Just goes to show the mark up dealers put on goods, we all know they buy from Walkinshaw via motor bodies in luton. And dealers wonder why we struggle to buy from them.

    I know its not your prices G as your the employee but that price takes the piss lol

    V8, not for everyone but 10/10 for your effort.

    Have you tried getting one over from OZ? As Commodores are everywhere out there and loads of breakers.

    May be worth putting a post up on the wanted section of the hsv forum.

    Tons of holden commodores with different rear lights in aus. Not so many hsv commodores though hence the mad prices.

    Really? I didnt expect them to be that rare. You see a HSV VE every 60secs in OZ.

    I've just been to a scrap yard in Perth about a week ago and they had piles of HSV VE tail lights... though to be fair i didnt ask him how much they were up for as I was there looking for VZ bits.

    But yes, the regular VE rear lights are pretty worthless - especially in OZ.
