    Default 2013 Arden Blue Corsa VXR

    Hi guys,

    I have just ordered a corsa vxr in arden blue due for delivery late april/early may! I previously had a 2012 corsa d white and black un-limited edition which i wrote of back in january due to flood damage, i then stupidly ordered a red and black limited edition but vx have constantly messed me about since ordering it, twice they have pushed the delivery date back by over a month! so luckily i have managed to change my order to the vixxer! I genuinely cannot wait! going to be a bit of a jump in power! but my insurance has only gone up £100 from a 1.2 to a 1.6T so ijumped at the chance!

    This is the first turbo car i have had so am abit of a noob! i know about all the warming up and cooling down things but i was just wondering if there is any running in perioid? and also if anyone could point my in the direction of a front grille vxr badge? ive looked about on ebay but cant seem to find one!

    Many thanks in advance!

    All depends on who you talk to on the forum, a lot of people will say go steady for the 1st 1000 miles and not to use full boost until after that land mark, however as long as you have warmed the engine up properly than you should be fine, obviously don't abuse or thrash the engine otherwise you will be expecting problems sooner than you should, you can drive it hard from the off, but I didn't go past 4k for the first 500 miles.
    Are you enough?
