    Default Rubbish astra vxr's

    Went to have a look at a silver one this morning. When I was asked if I wanted a test drive I said yes why not. He got the keys and I sat in the seat, went to lower it ad my head was touching the roof lining only to find it's as low as it will go! So I am physically unable to fit in the damn thing!

    So far Ford Focus 1, astra Vxr 0!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Unfortunate thing is the seats in the VXR sit higher than they do in other models due to the subframes.

    It's a really nice seat, just two inches too high!

    Exactly my thoughts. 6'6 and about 19 stone here (122 kg). Sat in a nice black ST with about 3" of head room.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
