  • Shortly to join the gang........

    Hi all.

    I first made a brief appearance on here to test-drive a Vectra VXR a few months ago. I did get to drive it, and enjoyed it, but for one reason or another, it didn`t happen at the time. I did promise to post my findings, but then the bl*ody computer went bang, and by the time I`d got everthing sorted, the topic had gone off the boil.

    Anyway..........today I`ve driven an Astra VXR, and Jesus, Mary and Joseph; this thing is QUICK !!!!

    I absolutely loved everything about the way it drives, and I couldn`t fault it on anything; power - handling - grip - turn in - braking............this car has it all.

    I must admit, I`m a bit of a "serial car swapper", and I`ve had loads in the last few years, including most of the "usual suspects", ie CTR, Focus ST, Mk V Golf GTI, etc..., but the VXR takes the biscuit here, in combining the best points of them all, rolled into one car. Simply phenomenal.

    Anyway, I`m just looking now to make the order with one of a couple of dealers who`ve been trying to sort me the best deal today, and once I have, I`ll be joining the fore.

    I CAN`T BLO*DY WAIT !!!!!!!!!

              Thanks for the replies peeps; although I did suspect that the lure of a Bank Holiday weekend, and associated "fluid intake" may prove more appealing than a night on the forum............ :P

              I`ll hopefully come to an arrangement with one of the dealers tomorrow, but I`m STILL undecided on the colour choice.

              Blue or silver; or it may just depend on the deal itself !

              Cheers.

                  Must admit, I`m leaning now toward the blue. I saw one today in the bright sunshine, and it looked amazing..........

                  I think if I did get the silver, I may be constantly looking at shiny blue ones, and kicking myself for not getting one of those instead. I`m not sure that I`d be feeling the opposite if I got the blue.

                  We`ll see............

                    Mines blue!

                    It was Blue or Silver for me, went blue as its a VXR unique colour.

                    Yep, I'm a VXR snob, its official. Want the world to know whats about to overtake them!

                    Oh, and something you pick up quite quickly is the colour argument!

                    It's been around since day 1 and I'm sure will continue for many more...

                      same thoughts as me when we were deciding. Also i hate VX red (fade problems) silver is too common among any car and black looks the dogs but marks to easy and is forever requiring a clean.

                        I px'd my wifes saphire black Corsa 1.8 SRi for the VXR so I knew how hard it was to keep it clean!

                        When it was clean, though, OMG. Stunning.

                          Of course, you could always ask Alex C, Mark, Martin, VXRDave and Shane which tuner you should use?

                              Hmm.............sounds like I should keep any tuning questions to myself for a while then. Thanks for that.
