  • pre production

    Hi,

    Just registered on here as Ive just bought an Astra VXR.
    I've been told mine is the pre-production model. I know the wheels are different but does anyone know of any other differences?

    Thanks
    Wayne

      Hi,
      I do have pics on this computer but dont know how to add them to the site.
      The wheels are identcal to 18 inchers but are 19's. I can't see any other changes visually but i guy i work with said there may be changes to suspension etc.

      cheers

            I had a tour of the luton plant (Cavalier line) in 1994 and the guy showing us around took us into a massive building with about 25-30 Omegas inside and he explained that they were all Pre-Production cars and would all eventually be destroyed and could not be sold to the public as they may or may not be "safe".

              The car certainly feels safe but a mate of mine said they were all going to be destroyed. I did buy it from a Vauxhall dealer though so surely this accounts for something.....

                wayne,

                if you PM me your VIN number, I'll contact the head honchos at Vauxhall Luton for you to make sure.

                    If you have bought from a dealer I am sure it will be fine, from what the Vauxhall guy said the Pre-Production cars were just for use by staff for evaluation purposes.

                    Enjoy the site and your Vixer...

                      more a pre-release than a pre-production
