  • just bought a new corsa vxr racing edition

    dear all, newbie here,

        hey, welcome to the site.

        Some advice on running the car in:
        http://www.vxronline.co.uk/forum/sho...hlight=running
        The guys there are talking about an astra but its the same proecdure.

        Just remember, as with any other car, let it warm up before giving it the beans. Also let the car idle after use for about a minute after use.

                          Welcome!

                          I picked mine up last thursday and was told the same RE: run in, just not to red line it.
                          So far shifting before 3k whilst the engine is cold without going foot to the floor and once warmed up after 10/15 minutes driving shifting <5k but still not foot to the floor...
                          Only on motorway runs after a good while am i foot to the floor for overtaking, enjoying teh turbo and running to 6k...

                          Oh, and if using the turbo hard during a trip ease off for last 10 minutes or so and let it cool, always letting idle for a while once stiopped....

                          I might get crucified for saying that but its a car, i let it warm up and i always let it cool down... cant go wrong :-)
