    Won't come back to Australia after GM/Holden pretty much f***ed the brand's reputation here. Sure, we'll probably see the same cars as Peugeots or something similar.

    As you two are owners/former owners of the last of the original Opels sold here, I'm sure the fact that Holden shafting the Opel brand by shutting manufacturing here and pinching Opel's lineup to sell as their own, whilst not offering proper support through things like map upgrades, etc still doesn't right with you. And I think Stellantis are well and truly aware of that fact.
