    Default VXR8 6.0, VXR8 6.2 or Bathurst S?

    As the other thread has too disappeared (like the rest unfortunately) and I have had time since then to look into the Vauxhall Monaro/VXR8/Bathurst S, I would like to ask you all another question. I have wiped the standard Monaro (5.7 V8 328bhp) and Monaro VXR500 (6.0 V8 supercharged) from my mind as I don't want a coupe whatsoever. However, there are two variants of the VXR8, the earlier one having the 6.0 V8 and the later one having the 6.2 V8. The Bathurst S has got the later 6.2 V8 supercharged and even second hand price is quite high at over £30,000. My question to you all is, do I hold out and buy a Bathurst S and become part of the exclusive club OR do I buy a cheaper (almost half the price of the Bathurst S) VXR8 and take it down to Walkinshaw Performance and get it supercharged? Which variant of the VXR8 would be best to get too?

    Bathurst S - http://www.walkinshawperformance.co....ews.asp?ID=346
    Whilst on the last link, have a look through their website.

    The modifying on my car will now take a back seat unless it's something really cheap to do. The only money getting spent will be to keep it on the road and all in good running order.

    Can someone be kind enough to put a poll up for me please?

    Sorry but asking that sort of question is like saying you can knob the girl of your dreams for the rest of your life OR you can knob the girl of your dreams for the rest of your life and her equally attractive sister will pop round and give you a blowie afterwards!

    If you have the money and can find one get the Bathurst S, if not get a VXR8 and take it to TWR/ Linden Special Vehicles/ Monkfish/ Wortec to get force induction added (super or turbo charged)

    Alternatively by an older VX/ VY HSV GTS Commodore and stick the forced induction on that (plus save a fortune in road tax)
