    Talking of traction control, on my old GSi the light used to be going all the time, on the VXR I can feel the traction control kicking in but the light only comes on very rarely. Is the the case across the board?

              Turning off the tc is fun, but the roads are usually wet at the moment.

                Use the throttle then, feed it in, like a good women.

                      Its brill the traction control trys to cut in all the time there is so much power, with sport on. When you get use to it she just flys.

                        Besides when i have run on v-power or 99ron there's not that much difference anyway.
                        You need to run it on Vpower all the time to get the beniffits mines had nothing else from the time i picked it up they filled it for me.

                        As for driving slow if you have the Vpower in you would bet better mpg as you dont need as much throttle as it burns better than the 95 stuff.

                          V Power good for MPG, not Tesco 99 though

                            what do you use @ work Dave as they will need rapid responce if they was after your VXR.
