Does the CV8 & the VXR Monaro have the same headlights, both here & Aus? (I believe them to be different on the US GTO).

Thank you.

CV8 & VXR models use the same lights, but the lights were slightly revised when the VZ (small boot) models were introduced.

VY (big boot) CV8 & VXR = softer curve on inside lower edge of light:



VZ (small boot) CV8 & VXR = sharper curve on inside lower edge of light:

You're right!

VY 5.7 CV8 (big boot) with the smooth front end has the curvy edge lights.
VY 5.7 VXR (big boot) & VZ 6.0 VXR (small boot) both use the same HSV front end, and use the curvy edge lights.
VZ 5.7 CV8 (small boot) with the not so smooth front end has the sharper edge lights
