    Default VXR has/is going

    Further to my thread yesterday which was deleted for no apparent reason the VXR is now being traded in got the money i wanted and got a decent deal on the new car, so i pick up a 2008 Seat Ibiza FR 1.9TDI after new year. Will be a shame to move away from Vauxhall after after an astra, vectra GSi and now the vectra VXR.

    Thanks for everyones help and advice over the last few years and it was a pleasure to offer advice to people aswell.

    I belive it was deleted as it was classed as a how much is it worth thread. So due to the forum rules one of the Mods deleted it for that reason.
    Good luck with the new motor. No doubt you will notice a difference between the VXR and the Seat.

    Thanks for the reply Ed i appreciate that but i dont understand why it could be deleted for that reason if my post stated how much it was worth as i had already done my research, as a regular poster of a few years i no better than to post such a topic. But i understand the decision has already been made and thanks for replying

    And yeah huge difference the vxr is the best car ive ever had and unless i ever come into a huge some of money then i wont have anything of the same class but a diesel hot hatch is what i targeted so the mix of 40mpg and still having a decent bit of power should keep me happy.

    I think what your thread and "what's it worth" threads have in common is that they can be construed as "send me a PM if you wanna buy it" threads.

    Another 2.8 V6 Turbo falls to economics, people simply have better places to put money these days than down the fuel filler neck and the taxman to sit in traffic !

    I have a family friend that's a dealer, won't take anything in P'ex over 2.0 petrol unless he gets it for a 'song' and it's off to the auction.

    Are you gonna keep the Seat standard or remap it ?

    I know it really is a shame, i lost a lot of money on it in the year ive had it but in the short term i need to start making savings and get my priorities straight and its only going to keep loosing its value.

    Performance wise ill keep it the way it is, i believe there is lots of modifications which are a straight swap from VW's and Audi's so i might change a couple of minor things. I was delighted to see almost 40mpg on my spirited test drive so that will ease the pain of moving on the vectra.

    You will have the 1.9 TDi PD 130 bhp engine in the Ibiza won't you, same as the old Fabia VRS I use to have.

    Nice engine that with a map from Revo, Jabbasport, AMD you should be looking at 170 bhp and loads of trq. Thats what was great about the PD 130 engine it had like 239 ft lbs trq at 1980 rpm. Trouble was (similar to all Vag dervs) it tails off pretty quickly also. A map will smooth it out no problems.
