  • Test Drive

    Hi guys

    First post, so be gentle!

    Finally managed to find a local dealer with a VXR in for me to have a drive of!

    Going down there tomorrow to take it out for a spin! Can't wait!

    I had a Focus ST on order up until a week ago, i decided to cancel it as I was fed up of waiting and being messed about. Didn't really know what car to go for after that, but went to have a look at a VXR and fell in love with it as soon as I saw it!

    Hopefully the driving experience will leave me feeling the same way, then i can get an order in!

    Will let you know what I think!

    Cheers

    Andy

                    Welcome to the site!!!

                    The VXR is the right choice, but if your worried about waiting then be prepared for a shock... Sounds like the wait at the mo is over 3 months...

                      Oh dear!

                      Looks like I'd have to go second hand or find a dealer with one coming in!

                        It`s a bit of a trek, but last time I was at Belmont in Aberdeen they had an Arden Blue on 19`s in the showroom, unregistered, couple of weeks ago ..

                          Just got back!

                          What can I say. Pulled up as it just stopped raining. Every time I see a VXR I get reminded of just how good looking it actually is. Had a good wander round before meeting the salesmen.

                          Had a good 45mins or so on various roads, and all in all I loved it. IMHO it seems to be much more involving than the ST. Don't get me wrong, i liked the ST, but this was more my cup of tea. reminded me of my Focus RS I used to have.

                          Definately gonna go for one within the next couple of months, just waiting for the cash to come through. Will probably look for a second hand one and save a bit of money.

                          So glad I cancelled the ST order now, can't wait to a VXR now!



                          Cheers

                            An excellent decision and quite right. There is just something so much better about the VXR, just feels right.....

                            Will keep my fingers crossed for you regarding ordertime and stuff - hopefully you'll be a fully fledged VXR Owner soon....
