    Default Got It On At Last

    Got my rear VXR panel on today so just need to get the lower bumper extension on when I get the time.Been to busy at work to do anything but need to get it on as it has been sprayed for weeks now and is sat in the garage gathering dust

    I like yours better. Im tempted to get an Astra VXR but the wife would kill me so I will wait a couple of years. What did you think of the Vectra VXR as I like those as well. I have the plate so just need the car now.There is a method behind my madness somewhere

    Telboy, if you're looking for a performance boost, have a think about popping down to chipped Uk in Bromsgrove for a remap, my 2.2 kicks butt now

    I'd agree with Spikey, I do have a harder time now trying to whip ***

    LOL!

    I loved the Vectra VXR, but I prefer the rawness of the Astra VXR. But prefered the 888 over the VXR

    I may have to have a trip to Chipped Uk Spikey. Did it make a lot of difference to your car then and how about the fuel consumption?

    Fuel consumption is roughly the same if not, very slightly better (diffcult to say as I tend to cane it a bit more ).

    Performance wise, there's no flat spots, picks up smoothly in every gear. Pulls from low revs quite nicely and when you drop down 1 or 2 gears you get shoved back in your seat a bit, not quite Gsi territory but a darn site better.

    I believe you have the Scorpion cat back exhaust system? Possibly the Viper induction kit? (can't remember if Cyb left these on for you) If so you'll see some nice results on the rollers and more importantly under your right foot.

    Torque comes in much earlier and hangs in longer. Gonna be another meet there in September, have a look in the West Mids regional section.
