  • Astra Vxr Arctic.... Rip Off!!!!

    Hi everyone! I can happily say that the new Astra Vxr is a rip off! Firstly, you can buy the burg for roughly 8k less! And the burgs look miles better. One of the downsides to me considerin buyin one is that it jus comes with a stock exhaust, could of put on a Remus or another custom made high performance exhaust system! Whats your opinions??

    I agree mate, its a burg without the remus and squares so should be cheaper.

      £8,000 difference?! Where are you getting that from? They are £16k at Aston's and I for one have never seen a burg for sale for £8,000!

      Its a bit different comparing the price of a new car to a car that is 2 years old.. Thats like saying me buying a Brand new Arden Astra is a rip off at £16,000 when I san get one two years old for £12,000...

      No sense in what you have written mate!

          You could buy a burg, take the stickers off and paint the bits black like the arctic costing a couple of hundred quid if you wanted.

          It would be the same in any colour, for instance if they made an arden racing and had the bits painted black same as the red racing editions, its pointless imo but thats just my opinion.

                Or you could just order it with the Remus, where's the hassle?

                      Not true, you can purchase the remus exhaust via your local vauxhall dealer or one of the turners.

                          Correct, cost price 2 years ago was £771 but that was from vxrpc i think.

                          With regards to the OP.

                          These are approx 2k cheaper than a new burg was and have 19's as standard and all the bits painted black to save you painting them black and doesnt have silly stickers that peel off and scratch easily.

                          Id much prefer an arctic to a burg personally.

                            don't see what the problem is
                            Vx have to shift stock before the next model so making an 'Arctic edition' makes perfect sense to me.
