    Default New VXR Owner (South West!)

    Sup Guys, I'm obviously new to the site, but like many I have been on here many times just looking at other VXRs until the day came when I finally got my own!
    It's an Arden Blue 58 Plate with 47k on the clock. It was fairly nearby unlike the others I was looking at so I decided to take the plunge before it went! It's an absolute monster in comparrison to my previous car (Vauxhall Astra G 1.6 Twinport) It puts a smile on my face everytime I get in it...
    Here are a few pics!

















    Although I'm not looking to do any serious performance modifications, I have devised a checklist of things I would like to sort out:
    - Replace Front Tyres
    - Repair Minor Front Bumper Crack
    - Refurbish Alloys
    - Move VXR Badge on Front Grille To Original Spot
    - Red VXR Inlay for Grille Badge
    - Astra Badge Tailgate
    - Griffin Badge Tailgate
    - VXR Mats
    - Alloy Bolt Caps
    - LED Headlights, Sidelights, Foglights & Numberplate Lights
    - Minor Scratch Repairs
    - Minor Paint Touchups
    - Stone Chip Repairs
    - Exhaust System Upgrade (Cat Back System - Possibly Cobra 3" Non-Res)


    I know I've put badges on the list but I must be one of the few who likes the tailgate badges? Ah well... As I've only just bought the car, I shall have to wait a little while before I can make a start on this list!

    Anyway... Many Thanks for looking at my very first thread, I look forward to chatting to some of you!
    Cheers!

    Cheers guys! I'm in Frome but I work in Bath! Yeah I will probably leave them off thinking about it! I'll try get some more pics when I have time. One thing I'm having a bit of trouble with is the keyless entry system. I've replaced the fob battery but it seems to work on and off. I sometimes get the control indicator symbol 'bong' at me when I try turn the ignition on, the handbook says this could be a range of things. Might have to get them reprogrammed or recoded maybe?

    I've switched to the spare fob for now and it seems to be working just fine... The other one must have a dodgy connection or something?
