  • VXR Newbie.... thoughts and advice?

    Hi Guys. I'm new to Vauxhall, coming across from an R32 Skyline gtr.

    Just about to pick up an ex demo arden blue VXR with 2800 miles on the clock. I figured at £16,400 it was good saving on new price. And it does have the 19" wheels. First question was this a good price from a dealer?

    Also I am interested to know the rough cost of full stage 2 work. Also where in the south east could do the work to EXCELLENT standard, including set up etc.

    Any thoughts, blunt, honest and otherwise welcome

    Steve

    Seems like a good dealer price to me
    Search the forums for stage 2 advice,you may not get too much response today from forum members because of the Midland meet but rest assured there will be plenty of advice coming your way.

        thanks guys....

        Hey thanks you guys, for the welcome and info so far. My right foot is itching to get in the VXR which i cant pick up until 26th Feb because the dealer (a friend) cant sell on demo cars until they are 3 mths old.

        I have a feeling this car wil be slighty more cost effective to run that the thirsty, beastly Skyline GTR....
