  • Newbie Arden VXR

    Hello VXROnline! I've been stalking your forums now for about 3 weeks since I was planning on trading in my 62 plate GTC 2.0CDTI SRi I got the VXR 2 weeks ago now and wow the VXR is utterly fantastic! It's a 63plate with 9500miles on it. Well worth the swap if you don't mind the fuel bills! I owned the sri for 2 years so if anyones wanting some info I'd be happy to oblige.

    I'll post minimal pics right now since I am sure everyone has seen an Arden VXR at this point

    I do have some mods planned, so far I have just added some Hekos and an extra VXR badge to the grill.
    Currently I have in mind for spraying the chrome interior trim to match the paintwork. Painting the Brembos yellow with a Black Sticker ontop.

    Perhaps a Stage 2 Remap or iust a stage 1 with a forge intercooler. And changing all the pipes and painting the header covers. Though I think an 8000w HID kit will be the next thing I buy.

    I'm also thinking about a lightweight flywheel and I'm wondering if anyone else has done this? Engine braking in this car isn't as great as I thought it would be.

    Look forward to meeting you all

          Very nice motor mate!

          One tip, leave the Forge intercooler. They are rubbish! Better get an Airtec or EDS. So much better!
