    Personally I think people like that ruin the image of VXR!

    It's probably his fault that the Colt people think there faster then VXR's

    good point but i think if you can`t afford a vxr or the insurance then this a good option and looks o.k.
    is it any different from ppl who get their corsa vxr and remap it and tune it to make it more powerful? why not just get a burg in the first place, i`ll tell you why because ppl probably can afford the corsa more than the burg i.e insurance, fuel and price to buy. If ppl are dumb enough to race this 1.2 and think it`s a vxr then that`s there problem D we all know the true power of the vxr and it`s a long way off 1.2 standards. there! had my little rant for the day... been working 12 hour nightshifts so must be moody lol

    I was however wondering about buying an Astra 1.4 basic model sport hatch and changing everything properly to VXR spec.. you save about 10k on the car maybe more if you get it on a deal.. spend the rest on converting the car and then selling all the 1.4 parts off...

    Now if I am right that maens your car will still be put in the 1.4 tax band.. Have that Gordon!

    Your taking a brand and making it appear better my making it appear faster as it's mapped..

    This is taking a slower car and putting a badge on it..

    Now buying a corsa SRi and badging it as a Design 1.0 would be fine!

    This morning i ran some quotes through gocompare.com and an astra burg was actually cheaper to insure than a corsa vxr

    Why does a car regd in 2007 have a MOT? The only thing I can think of is if at some time it has been prohibited.

    It's probably a stolen corsa vxr that's had an engine transplant
