  • What got you to the Astra VXR ?

    Hi folks

    Just realised I've been driving for nearly 20 years and about to step in the ring for a haggle with a dealer on a new VXR.

    this is a list of putchaes which have now gone full circle back to Vauxhall. Anyone had a more fun line up of cars.

    Vauxhall Cavalier 2000 - Smashed to pieces before passing test !!
    MG Metro - Never out of the garage
    Escort XR3
    Escort XR3i
    Escort RS1600i - What a beauty
    Escort RS Turbo
    Rover 213 - Yuk but bought first house
    VW Polo G40 - Bonkers
    Audi 90 20v Quattro
    BMW 325i Coupe - Super smooth
    Fiat Couple 20v Turbo - very fast
    Saab 9-3 Aero - Need the boto and rear seat for little ones
    Vauxhall Astra VXR - Soon, kids are older no need for the space !!!

                        I had a race with a racing puma (2.2 with wide arches isn't it) when i had my (hairdressers) new tigra twintop 1.8 sport. any way the tigra was quicker (standard as well). I could see the look of the drivers face when we races to the motorway and i took him on the slip road. priceless.
