        No probs here mate, smooth as a baby. Wrong sized tyres? Corerct pressures? Transport blocks still in suspension springs? Your usual road got quite heavy tramlines in it?

            if you wanted superb handling you should of gone with a renault megane or something not as good looking and fun to drive as the vxr ;D

              at a guess its cos of the wide tyres, they are more prone to following even the smallest deviation in the road. mines terrible for it in the first lane on the motorway with the tramlines

                Nathans transport blocks were in for 18000 miles...


                Also sit upright maybe closer, sure its not as sporty but you'll have much more control..

                    Mine does it too, it is the tramlining from grooves and pits in the road. can be quite violent sometimes.
                    I never drive with one hand on the wheel in the Corsa.

                          Well mine s absoutely fine. I have 17's and never had any problems, obviously it wants to slightly follow the road, thats the price you pay for the thinner tyre, so unless the 18's are really that much worse i think you should all go get your cars checked.

                          I drive on motorways and never had any probs.

                            Maybe that's why it's been set up like that - stop people chavving around with one arm out the window
