    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 2.0 turbo

    Year : 2005

    Default Astra VXR

    I am not 100% but i have been finding myself looking at Arden blue Astra VXR's a lot recently and i have been toying with the idea of maybe getting myself one.
    Now over the past few months i have spent a small fortune on modding my Vectra 2,0 turbo to how i want it but there is something missing for me and it has to be said im not very excited by it. I do like the car the looks do it for me and a bit more work and i know it could be better but the Astra offers so much especially on the tuning potential and the looks the only thing that worries me is i get bored all the time with cars its getting silly

    I dont want to make any rash decision here and make a mistake of selling my Vectra and regretting it please guys need some good advice here me thinks

    Vehicle : Vxr in red




    Default

    I test drove one and if i was going for a hot hatch id go for the focus st, oh yeah i did lol. Astra was nice but seemed a bit claustrophobic especially in the back. Rear view out mirror is naff aswell.

    the 2012 xvr astra is out soon, with 276 bhp (280PS). very nice, but £27,000 ... what were they smoking when they decided on that price
