VL Commodore Limited Edition???

Hi all,
am new around here,
Have a question,
Mate of mine has a Red VL Commodore,
and he has been told by his brother (Cars pervious owner) and his bro's mates that the Commodore is a LE (ie Limited Edition).
Anyone ever heard of such a thing??
or are these guys really just taking the p*ss??

Cheers
Chris.
edit bad spelling

u can usually tell my the bodykit, it would have a rear spoiler on the edge of the boot lid, front, rear, side skirts, letterbox grill, and i think theres a HDT badge somewhere.
Someone correct me if im rong..

Its not a genuine LE but the kit is real so you've got the lower lip on front,side and rear and the little spoiler off the bootlid.

Ive seen a VL round here with an LE sticker on the RHS of the bootlid. Not a HDT LE (or even a Calais) however, just an Exec with a sticker. I think they may have been some kind of dealer pack. Not entirely sure.

There's a difference between the HDT 'LE' and the normal 'Limited Edition'. The limited edition VL has funny silver decals on the lower doors, and a few extra interior bits thrown in to make the exec base a little classier.

jordy is right, the normal 'limited edition' vl with the fancy writing decals is nothing special really in comparison to a hdt LE which is worth a lot more and more collectable...and that last pic doesn't havn't the LE sidskirts, only calais sideskirts. the le ones are different with different side panels.

There is a such thing as a Limited Edition, which is different to the LE's made by HDT. Which is what I said before

Silver bumpers, tacho dash, silver dot decal on the lower doors, and a few miscellaneous extras on an executive base.

VL Commodore LE

Hey all,
thanks for the replies,
So I need to check,
the body kit, dash, mags, door trims,
I know has no exterior decals or stickers,
as has been repainted.
What else should I look for?
Will see if I can get a pic of it and post it.
Cheers
Chris.

If an HDT LE, it will have an HDT build plate won't it?

If its just a "Limited Edition" as described above, i doubt there will be anything to identify it if its been resprayed.

VL Limited Edition

Yes there is such thing , There is one on ebay at the moment for sale , Car looks mint.
They were fitted with Pirelli P44 White Band Tyres - High Mount Rear Brake Light - Colour coded Body and Bars - Berlina / Calais Centre Console - Special Cloth Insert Seats and Limited Edition Badging. They only came out in 2 Colours. Durif Red and Nocturn Blue. Power Steering and aircon was part of the Package , Then you can option it up with quarter venitions, Rear Venitions , Headlight Protectors etc. etc. Most i have seen around are all buggered.
