    Default VXR Owners....would you recommend one?

    When I first joined this site the VXR was nigh on an unattainable dream.....now plenty of people have had 'em and they are pretty much the same price as a nice Vectra 'B' used to be.

    So.....knowing what you know, would you recommend 'em?

    Have they proven to be reliable motors or money pits?

    I've been drawn recently to the usual BMW, Audi contenders but out of the corner of my eye I keep seeing tidy cheap VXR's that seem to be a lot of modern metal for the money.

    Would ya?

    Vehicle : VXR8 6.0 muscle SRI ESTATE XP1

    Trim : VXR/ SRI ESTATE CDTI XP1

    Engine : 6.0 V8 Thunder

    I love my Vxr and its without doubt one of the best cars ive ever owned. My car falls into the lower tax bracket which is good but the later ones cost over £400 a year to tax, certain things like shocks are very expensive but other wise only slightly dearer to service then say a 2.2 . Try and find a low miles with lots of toys and the 1st mod is a remap as this makes a hell of a difference
    would I recommend one you bet I would !!
