    Default Just bought a corsa vxr does anyone know the previous owner ?? * bt12bof *

    Just bought a 2012 corsa vxr yesterday from a garage in Oldham Manchester just wondering if anyone knows the previous owner would like to know abit about the car while thereís warranty on it see it they had any problems before getting shot of it saves me a few quid only has one month warranty so would rather know if it needs anything

    Seems to be quick got a straight through on it pops and bangs overall impressed to be honest. Had a a Astra vxr a few year back this corsa puts the same grin on my face as the the Astra did. Big kid at heart haha

    Cheers for ya help

    Seems so but not really any way of checking, a double decat is also an Mot fail.

    If it has a different turbo etc then obviously you would know but barring that I'm not sure how you would visually know.

    Would have to go garage to check injectors intercooler etc but even then you wouldnt know who's maps on it.

    No receipts whatsoever?

    Donít think it has front mount no, but really does go well pops and bangs. Spins the wheels up in 3rd. Defo not standard. Was thinking of front mounting it, down pipe decat removal and getting it remapped again just to make sure. What bhp would I be looking at then ?
