  • Placed my order....days going so slow!

    I have ordered a Vectra VXR, without a test drive, without seeing one in the flesh and without knowing how long i would have to wait! Prior to the order being processed they estimated 8 weeks, that has come down two weeks already. Fingers crossed it will be here a month today.

    Prepare the laughing muscles and feel free to express opinions, i have ordered a black one with Sat-Nav. I have spent the last couple of weeks touring the interweb searching for owners pics. I know everyone loves the Arden Blue but i love being different.

    Anyone have, or know where i can get, some shots of a Black VXR?

        Excellent choice mate, should look really nice in black. Spoons did his Vectra 1.9CDTI up as a VXR so it should give you a good idea, here's the linky http://www.vxronline.co.uk/messagebo...pic.php?t=2614

        Hope it arrives as quickly as possible for ya :wink:

                          I also went for the Black VXR without test driving it or seeing it.

                          It was a great experience taking it from the showroom and putting my foot down on the motorway on the way home. I have never driven a car that can gain so much speed so quickly and you hardly know your doing it until you pass other cars that appear stationary.

                          The Vectra VXR is a real licence looser, so be careful. Get yourself a decent Sat Nav with speed camera detector. It saved me a couple of times!

                          I had the ECU remap and have managed to touch 170Mph. I don't know many cars for 24k that can do this.

                            Yep i have noticed, it has pretty much turned all my journey times to those of my bike. that overtaking buzz is very, VERY addictive!

                              You're not mad.

                              I ordered mine, no test drive, although I had seen one in the same colour with the wrong wheels and cloth interior.

                              Almost 10k miles since December, and by far and away the best car I have ever owned.

                              There was a very unhappy BMW 645 owner on the M40 last week (HOW much???)...
