    Ha ha, got to say I have had a couple of fast Renaults, a clio 172 and a Megane R26, loved em both, both so much fun, and neither ever missed a beat, I admit they both used to rattle and make funny noises from the interior but other than that I never had an issue with either of them. But compare what I have seen of the Renaultsport range these days with the VXR range, and the VXR range are far superior in build quality. I love the GTC VXR, and got to say Vauxhall have certainly upped their game in the past few years.

    Having owned 3 in the past I'm a massive massive impreza fan but they do nothing for me anymore. Good video.

    Results were fascinating - especially the hot lap test at the end!

    Not a bad Video, I am out working in South Africa at the moment, and I saw a yellow OPC in the flesh, very nice colour, they also do more colour options over here, standard spec seems better too.

    Ermm... the results of the hot lap?!

    Who thought the VXR would beat an M235i and 4wd Impreza around a track!

    I am fortunate to own both the megane 250 cup and the astra gtc vxr. After coming out of a Bathurst vxr8 I'm blown away by the gtc vxr for spec handling looks and drive.
    The Megane steering is heavier with a great feel but the handling side by side in both cars is pretty much identical.
    The second hand value of the gtc is the most affordable best all rounder money can buy right now.
    Forget a mk2 RS focus or 23k scooby don't bother the gtc is right up there in my view and for much less money second hand.

    Having owned the gtc Vxr Arden blue for a year now, And it's only done 24,000 miles I have to say it's the worse Vauxhall I've ever owned
    1. Gear box is terrible especially jumping our of 2nd gear
    2. Arden blue paintwork is shocking covered in stone chips on bonnet and roof
    3. Alloys are shocking corroding on every wheel
    4. Drivers seat catch has gone and won't open
    5. 1st and 2nd gear waste of time wheel spins
