While some prefer to keep their vehicles in stock condition, others love to “personalize” and “customize” their rides. And if you happen to fall into the latter group and are also the proud owner of a VF Commodore, then Holden has just the thing for you with its new assortment official accessories.
For the VF, Holden is making the new range of Genuine Accessories available in modular kits that it calls “Design Packs”, allowing customers to attain subtle sports highlights all the way through to the ultimate sports performance styling package, and everything in between.
The three modular kits include:
|STAGE 1||STAGE 2||STAGE 3|
|COLOR-MATCHED UPPER & LOWER GRILLE SURROUNDS (RED, BLACK)||TRACK STRIPES||FOUR HF-20 20 ALLOY WHEELS IN MIDNIGHT DARK GREY, OR|
|BLACK DAYLIGHT RUNNING LAMP SURROUNDS (SS V-SERIES ONLY)||ALLOY SPORTS PEDALS||MACHINE FACED GUNMETAL GLOSS AND 245/35 ZR20 HIGH PERFORMANCE TIRES|
|BLACK FENDER VENTS||SPORTS CARPET FLOOR MATS|
|COLOR-MATCHED MIRROR CAPS|
|SPORTS ENGINE COVER W/ RED ACCENTS (V8 ONLY)|
|BLACK LIP SPOILER (SEDAN ONLY)|
And lest you think that these are some run-of-the-mill third-party bits, Holden emphasizes the fact that the accessories weren’t only designed for good looks, but also were put through “rigorous engineering testing to cope with Australia’s unique environment and road conditions”. According to Holden Engineering Manager for Accessories Keegan Brown, all genuine Holden Accessories undergo exhaustive durability testing to ensure longevity and quality.
“We understand our customers’ cars are their pride and joy. Protecting the condition of their asset is very important to them, which is why we’ve developed new accessories to help customers maintain the showroom condition of their VF Commodore,” he said.
“For example, Holden’s three-piece sports armour is a kit that is fixed to the front fascia to protect it from every day wear and tear like carpark and kerb damage.
“And we know it will stand the test of time because we’ve exposed it to hundreds of ramp strikes and high speed durability testing to ensure that the product will continue doing its job for years to come.
“Our track stripes are also carefully designed to ensure UV protection and long term weather resistance so they’ll look as good as the day you bought them.”
So there you go: great looks and great quality — straight form the factory. What more could you ask for?
