    Hello!

    Im going to look at an 06 plate, black Astra VXR which has done 9k miles tomorrow morning. The cars up for £15995. Its at a Ford garage... I dunno, someone must have traded it in for a Galaxy due to kids lol surely they havnt swapped it for an ST

    Are there specific things to look for apart from the usual, or are the VXRs pretty solid? Hopefully i'll take it for a test drive so, again anything to look out for - the IDS+ system for example? No idea how that thing works lol. Its got xenon lights, the IDS+ as ive said, sat-nav and the 19" alloys.

    Cheers

    Dave

            I did drive it - Does that answer your question?

            Alot different to my Fabia vRS, which is a good car, felt no where near as dynamic and sharp as the Astra. Interior is well nice too. The seats!!!! God I cant wait for it!

            Cheers people

                        I had to wait 3 months for my Fabia vRS (factory order) and I was... VERY excited to say the least. I dont even have to wait a week for the VXR and tbh at the moment I still cant believe im getting one - being only 21.

                        Don't think i'll be getting much sleep thursday night
