  • vxr alternative, sri xp 5 dr 240 ps

    just phoned marshalls of leicester, they have coming in an unreg astra 5 dr sri xp 200ps which has been remaped by vauxhall to 240 ps, i think the salesman said by vxrpc, its in flame red and has sat nav, xenons, ids plus the usual spec £15995.....
    i think maybe vauxhall are doing this as the 200 ps engine has stopped
    prduction [like the 170] to make way for the new 1.6 turbo, and they have some of the old models left,
    someone who wants vxr power but needs 5 doors what a car........
    still rarther have my vxr though .....

      Don't think Vauxhall is doing this since I know Opel didn't plan anything.

      Maybe the dealers give you the posibility to select +bhp.
      Just like you can get Irmscher parts by buying an Opel/Vauxhall.

      Anyway a 5 door 240PS Astra would be nice.
      You could be very fast still, and you would not have any problems to go for vacations with it .
      But, as you said, I like the 3 door Astra more.

            your right about salesmen, they will tell you anything to get a sale............
            but dont forget this is the pre-facelift model with the deleted engine,
            the same dealer was offering brand new vxr astras for £17,495 a couple of months ago.....................
            anyway enough about 5 door astras my vxr is seven weeks old and i wouldnt swap it for the world.................[well maybe the new vxr 8]
