Thread: Bugs.....

    Default Bugs.....

    Just an observation, but I took the VXR through the Herefordshire countryside this weekend for a visit to my parents. The day was exceptionally sunny, and a lovely summers day.

    160 mile roundtrip and I expected to have to wash the car afterwards due to all the suicidal bugs collected enroute...

    But there were hardly any... even the rare 130 mph bugs that always seem to hit the VXR weren't there.

    Where have all the bugs gone...?

    I've noticed this too, the Vectra seems to be lacking them after taking it out for runs.

    Maybe something to do with the ultra cold winter we had, it's the same up here. Expected the car to be covered after a trip to Dundee but the were only three victims

    I wiped most of them out on the M5 a couple of weekends ago - could barely tell my bumper was black under all the splattered wings
