    Hi all
    I currently have an evo6, i have had this about 18 months and looking for a change, just looking for opinions on the astra vxr, i am waiting for a demo to arrive at the dealers for a test drive.
    Speed wise i know the vxr won`t be able to compare, but i am looking for a car thats still quick but a bit better ride/better cabin quality etc.

    All replies thanks in advance.

    Well Welcome to the site my friend.

    Some ppl here have had powerfull cars before but have found the VXR good fun.

    Contact VXRMARC as hes also had an EVO and is getting a VXR.

      My last car was an Evo 7 FQ300, and I'll be picking up my VXR in a fortnight. I picked the Astra mainly because it looks the business, but on the test drive it was actually a very nice car to drive. I agree that the VXR wont be as fast as an Evo (in standard forms) but the interior is miles better and it certainly rides better. I just hope the VXR is as reliable as my Evo was, its the only car I have ever owned (most being new) that I didn't have a SINGLE problem with over the time that I owned it. The VXR should also be considerably cheaper to run. Anyway, it will keep me going for a couple of years until I get my Evo 10!

              To be honest it was a toss up between a VXR and an 8 MR FQ320. I chose the VXR because I wanted something different, it looks much better and will be cheaper to run.
