    Talking Finally, after 6 years I got me a VXR!

    Hi,
    I'll get some pics up at the weekend of my 'beast'. Picked it up almost 3 weeks ago for £5500. Very late 56 plate in Flame red, 55,000 miles, 18" wheels, satnav and bluetooth... Oh and remapped to, roughly, 300bhp and 400lb/ft!
    So far I've fitted genuine flatbeam wipers, all interior bulbs LED, chrome indicators all round, xenon filled 501 sidelights as I couldn't live with strobing LEDs, Irmscher pins, auto dimming interior mirror, Rain and light sensor (needs Tech2). Other plans are to get hold of a Xenon auto light switch if such a thing exists? Folding, auto dimming door mirrors, DAP springs and 2 new front tyres to replace the Primewell rubbish on there!
    This is my sixth Vauxhall after owning a Corsa C 1.4 SRI, Astra G 1.8 gold coupe, Astra H 1.6 Sxi, Astra H 1.9CDTi and an Astra Coupe turbo!
    I've also owned some seriously fast cars and some that have phenominal grip: E39 M5, Boxster S, R34 Skyline, 'Bugeye STi, Accord Type R, CTR, Alfa GTV 3.0 V6, Megane 225 Trophy.
    After owning all these, I can confidently say that nothing comes close, for sheer outright pace, to the M5... Except the VXR! True, it doesn't handle anywhere near like the ATR, but considering the weight, lack of LSD and the torque, it does a damn fine job in my opinion, and so far I've seen off a tuned Focus ST3, a Porsche convertible (944 possibly?) along straights and twisties, and a few jokers like an FN2 CTR and some silly old turbo Golf thing! Seems as soon as someone see's the VXR badge it's like a red rag...
