  • The stunner has been picked up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Picked up my Red VXR with 19"s today nicely run in on 2300 miles and it pulls like a train, dare I say it drives better than my old Focus RS!!!

    The dealership I have bought it off Victoria Garage in Leigh Wigan have been absolutely brilliant from start to finish and have even invited me and my wife seeing as she has a vx220 lightning on a track day in early 2007 using there own cars.

    Big thanks to Scott who is the sales manager and all the team, dealt with alot of Vauxhall dealerships over the years and I have to say I have never been treated so superbly!!

    I think the Militek full system could be on its way!!

          Just spent the day getting to know the car and what can I say it feels so much quicker than my old Focus RS, the car is quick enough without the sport mode on but press the button and all hell brakes loose!!!!!!!

          Beautiful car which grips the road perfectly, I'm so pleased I opted against waiting for a brand spanker as the waiting will have killed me!!

          When you've got it you'll have to let me know when your up here and we'll compare notes!

              You'll prob find it will have abour 12-15 miles on the clock as most of the car's i've seen from new have about the same milage. mine came with 13 miles.

                      The vxr has 237nhp as opposed to the focus which `only` has 215, so I would expect the vxr`s to be quicker, a more advanced engine as well. Love the Focus RS though, has quite a presence about it ....Glad you are enjoying the VXR anyways, though if I had a Focus RS I don`t know if I would have traded, more exclusive car ?

                        I always wanted a Focus RS but could only run to a Zetec at the time. Mind you I remember a few months ago seeing some photos of a 2nd generation Focus RS on winter testing. So maybe there will be a successor in the future.

So maybe there will be a true successor in the future because I don't feel the ST can be classed as one.

                            337bhp well thats some seriuos mod's there then.

                            Focus RS my mate hasone and my old Zafira was quicker on the straight but in the bends i had no hope.

                            On way to work yesterday if you think on RS is hard i played with a P reg 911 Carrea and he bottled it when i went by him as he was pushing 120
