  • picking mine up 1st of march

    W'sup all ?
    Picking up my astra vxr around march 1st, so i can get the 07 plate, cant wait. Been reading everything on here over the last few days, and i have to say, you guys and girls really know your stuff, some of the upgrades you've done sound awsome. Anyway.....Was wondering if you have any advice for when i get my car, appart from the not putting my foot down until i've got some millage behind me. any info will be gr8.
    cheers all

        You can't steal me and Lou's idea and project!!!

        My only suggestion is just enjoy and if you can change the oil after about 5k once the engine has bedded in.

                        Getting the arden blue, not quite sure about the pink, but thanks anyway! Had a 02 focus ST170 until recently, so gotta get used to the vxr for a lil while yet. How long do you think i should leave the engine bed in before I start adding extra's, or even re-mapping???

                            I was told to keep it low revs until about 400 miles but i caved in at 350. Probably best to give it 1000 miles before doing mods. They inprove with miles anyway.
