    I knew a guy who had one of these running about 250bhp and it was silly fast mate ! He said it made his e46 m3 feel slow as anything so I rekon it will be a fun drive !!

    Awesome track car, my pal has one and recons the interior is made of cheese. I could not keep with him in my skyline! He could out handle me out brake me and up to 60 was proper fast car, only on the longer straights would I pull a bit back. As a weekend/track car yes go get one. Every day, no, will get old very quickly.

    With some tracking alterations they are great little cars but hardly user friendly... In my case I don't fit so as much as I like them it's a non starter!

    Totally different cars.... but both great.

    VX isnt really a daily driver, and would be hard to use for regualar journeys.... ive tried it and not managed very long without getting another car to allow the VX200 to become a weekend 'toy'.

    Go for it , I got rid of my astra vxr for A supercharged vx220 best car I've ever owned. And is silly fast.

    I have no kids so no need for more seats , they really are fine for every day use as this is what I use it for.
    Very reliable , pure drivers car but yeah you cannot compare the astra to one of these.

    I have not been through winter in mine however which I think will probe to be testing!

    Hope you have got one by now ! Haha
