    I had a 2.2 vx220 a few years back and it was a great handling car much better than the turbo but it clearly needed more power so I went and had the supercharger fitted at courtney and that put it up to 250bhp and the fact thyat the car was about 150kg less than the turbo it made the car different class. No lag and it just pulled in every gear like you would'nt believe
    Three stone heavier now I am more than happy with 630bhp from my bathurst s

    an na vx220 is not 150kg lighter than the turbo.......
    60kg lighter is more realistic.

    870kg na
    930kg turbo

    vx220 is a great car.
    i own a tubby, and if you have the 16/17 wheel combo, a really good suspension setup along with the right geo set up, you are laughing.

    its not the most pratical car, but i still use it as a everyday car,

    only thing.........................

    once you start modding these thing, there's no stopping!

    also worth noting, dont jump out the astra and think you can drive a vx fast

    being mid engine, if you spin you dont stop untill you hit something

    the m3 and the vxt are completely different animals, both fast but thats where the similarity ends. If someone is seriously considering a M3 then it is unlikley the VXT is going to tick all their boxes. My advice would be stop worrying about which is faster, drive both and then listen to your gut.

    there! lol

    im still trying to decide on what car next, as i could have a company car... id have something stupid like a vx220.. but as i may have to use my own car... swaying towards a 1 M coupe (330bhp)

    so depends on millage... and im only small so if your a normal size person id look at other cars ..
    The 1M is a great car I got to drive one before they were on sale. Forget the E46 M3 this car would kill an E92/90
