    Default I'm in love.....

    Whilst at 888 today Tony Pilcher threw me the keys to his EDS VXR..

    This is no normal VXR.. ...as it is blessed with 340-350 BHP !!

    I had 4 adults in the car and it absolutely flew !!...... I want one

    ..and although you could wheelspin the car in 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th... it was actually very very manageable, which suprised me... ferkin quick car !! - and that was with 4 adults on board (have I already mentioned that )

    EDIT: Oh, and for those of you that know Kieth... he did a 0-60mph in this car... looked down and he was doing just under 100mph... how quick...!!

    EDIT II: Oh, and when you let off the throttle, it burbled and popped like a V8... cooooool, and did I mention how fast it was... pulled like a train !!!

    Wow! That sounds like fantastic fun but I bet it would cost an arm and a leg to run as an everyday car!

    Fortune.... I have no idea of facts... but I reckon it must be around 6-9 mpg when driving enthusiastically... which would be all the time !!

    I certainly did You know me !!

    First, you need to get a Vectra VXR 2.8 Turbo Engine !! - preferably still attached to a car.

    Then you add a bid of 888 magic dust and EDS mapping. This magic dust costs around £3,500

    Then you laminate your drivers licence and then bury it at the bottom of the garden. Cos you wont need that again...

    Go Play !!

    Its still 'work in progress', Tony only got it back today !!

    We are waiting for the AP Racing 6-Pot systems to arrive.. should be in the next 4 weeks with a bit of luck. AP Racing wont agree to the 4-Pots being fitted to the Vectra due to its weight... so 6-Pots have to be specified...
