    Services are cheap, parts are ok. Tax is only a pound a day. Insurance on my elite is cheaper then on a 3ltr diesel. Mpg is fine on a run but poor in stop start traffic.

    have a read here fella
    http://www.vxronline.co.uk/forum/sho...r+buyers+guide

    i love my vxr best car ive ever owned but it soes come with its problems
    mine is a early car so in the cheaper tax band later cars after march 06 cost double to tax mine is a 255 model but has been mapped and gets the same results power wise as a 280 model thats been mapped.
    the suspension is very expensive to replace so any car that you view make sure none of the shocks are leaking,
    there reports now on vxronline are concerning cam chains that appear to be stretching this has only affected a few cars at the moment though. brakes are also expensive to replace as well take your time bud buy a good one with lots of toys and get it mapped its a different beast with it mapped

    love mine dont find it to bad on feul the insurance is only 50 more a year than my old 150 sri.
    there are a few options to make life cheaper.
    i would go for one which has been owned by a vxronline member as you will find they tend to look after there motors.
    there are things to consider ie some of the earlier ones are tax banded at 250 a year others are 450 i think.
    if you spot one id be more than happy to look at it for you in particular its engine.
