  • My Astra VXR VXRacing No 265

    Just a few pictures showing my new Astra VXR, which has replaced my old Corsa VXR. I'm very pleased with it and I can't stop laughing whenever I see it. My last two cars have been black and therefore not really noticeable. Now I have a bright red one with shiny black bits on and every chav, pikey and teenager that walks past looks at it . I'm not sure if my personality can pull it off, but my brother has bought me a baseball cap to wear so that I can look the part .

    As for the way it drives, well I haven't opened up the taps on it yet but there is definitely more under the bonnet than in the Corsa and the smoothness of the controls are a joy to behold. The Corsa handles better and stops better though. Come next year that will be different .
    All in all I think the Astra is better if you want a fast, capable hatch that is also relaxing to drive. The Corsa is a bit too much hard work for me although I'll always love the driving experience.

    Anyway, on with the pictures. There's a few blurry ones due to my ancient camera but most are decent enough:

      Checked when I picked it up mate, no blocks. I think the effect of massive black wheels on the car make it look that way.

            Thank you Dougie.
            Only if your paying. I can't afford another £800 weekend, 1 month before my insurance renewal again. I only just survived last time!

                I asked the dealership to take it off for me before I picked it up. I never really liked them.

                    These are growing on me every time I see one although I still really hate the black side strips. Love the interior though with the red stitching. Enjoy it mate!

                            Thanks Shane.

                            I'll miss my Corsa as it was great fun to drive but I feel I've made the right decision by changing it for the Astra. If I win the lottery, I would track down my old Corsa and buy it back though.

                              they both have their place mate but you will soon forget about your little black corsa, and how can you not, just look how bright your astra is
