  • My Astra VXR - over time

    Picked her up on the 23rd Dec and almost 1400 miles on the clock later and what can i say, bloody beauty in the looks, handling and performance department.
    Gave her a nice run in on a 4 day trip around the Devon/Cornwall coastline and the VXR ate up the coastal wet b-roads with ease.
    Now awaiting TMS to open up to fit the full milltek later this month, other mods planned- awaiting T8 engineering to open their doors - fill brake system and new 18's :wink:

            well its been some time since i gave an update on my VXR having now owned it for almost 9 months and over 10,000 miles on the clock

            to date

            TMS stage 2 remap
            full Milltek exhaust
            KW varient 3 adjustable coilovers (30mm drop)
            AP/VXRacing brakes
            VXRacing engine hoses
            full tints
            irmscher carbonfibre effect handbrake

            other mods planned but seeing as winter is nearly apon us the VXR will be going into hibernation during most of the wet and cold period so to will anymore upgrades.

            a few pics as the VXR stands today

                red/orange, still stands out like dogs b****,
                black has the tendency to blend in with the road like some sort of sci fi cloaking
