    Ask for the name of their "VXR Specialist Depot" and see whether people on here know of it.

    Sporticus, I'd walk away from this one unless you can satisfy yourself re the gearbox, plenty more out there. My own experiances with Vauxhall so called VXR specialists is they are dangerous. I wouldn't trust them to put petrol in mine. Roger Keys, I believe formerly of Monkfish and now works for Pedders, is selling one, a 2007 Auto in red, with Wortec Sports pac. Can't post a link because the advert is in a closed Facebook group, but he says in the ad that it will shortly be on Pistonheads. If nothing else and it is Monkfish Roger, he knows these cars better than almost anyone on the planet.

    To be honest mate i think it is priced low with all the extras and the low mileage for the year. I know you know these cars well but you know the old saying of if it seems too good to be true! Not sure if i missed it but i never seen anthing about the service history. Car looks great though. Would be a great buy for you if the gearbox is up to scratch as the dealership states it is.

    Yeah they are scanning and sending me the invoice of all work carried out on the box. Car has stamps for service based mainly on mileage rather than years but all mix of WP/MF and dealer they say...but agree mate...tiz on th cheap side. They seem to be up front with everything but never know if it’s staged (as it were). Who knows but should get the invoice tomorrow
