    Default VXR Monaro

    I called in to Lookers Ellesmere Port last night to get some wipers. In the showroom was a V8 Monaro VXr in Star Silver......Buck me what a car!!!!

    Theres a few Monaros round by me and I always liked em. I'd actually seen one a few days earlier in the Port but hadn't spotted the VXR badge.

    I had a good look round. The exterior styling is awesome. I heard the interioir was not to every ones taste...I can agree the croocked Handbrake lever was a little weird but over all I liked it. It was an piece of art worthy of the Louvre or the Tate modern! If I had the money going spare and I could get a deisel engine (or get a new job closer to home) I would put me hands in me pocket today.!! No make that Yesterday!

    was a tough call when i bought the GSi... the only other car on the list was the Monaro...but the sensible head won..

    If i had bought that instead, you guys and girls wouldn't be putting up with me now..

    Totally with you there matey. I had a good look around some VXR Monaro's at Silverstone on Sunday and the wife's in love with them as well.

    I'm in the same boat (no pun intended) as you though matey, the fuel costs would cripple me.

    Diana and I had a similar conversation. She cant see the point in the Vectra VXR.... may as well go for the Monaro VXR if you want to spend £20k+

    Fuel costs would cripple me as well...

    I've driven a Linden/Wortec tweaked Monaro (more bhp/torque than the Monaro VXR!!) that a friend used to have (sold it due to baby arrriving!) and boy oh boy was that fun!!! I hadn't long bought the Signum but I was still eyeing it up when he was selling it! Just wouldn't have been a practical car for me and the fuel costs, as said above, would be painful!! It'd be a helluva lot of fun though!!

    You can only fit LPG after the warranty runs out though Harry. It would be an easy get out clause for Vx if anything went wrong.

    Already had the nod from Sam that I can have one for my 40th Birthday!! OK only 3 1/2 years to go, but oh yes I will be having one, oh yes!!

    Not that I normally have to get her to give me clearence on anything, but I suppose having a 3rd car, her Audi being kicked out the garage would be worth a little consulting!!
