    Vehicle : vectra vxr

    Trim : vxr

    Engine : 2.8 v6 turbo

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 31000

    Red face First full week with vxr

    Thought I would give my verdict on my first full week with the vxr. Absolutely the best vauxhall I have had so far(had a few now) even better than my old zaffy gsi and it was good. But can't believe how refined it is just pottering about town and the country roads round here plus a lot smoother over the rough stuff than my old vec Sri was on 19s! but I think that's must be the ids set up on the vxr. pleasantly surprised how good it is on fuel aswell averaged around 30mpg so far. But hell it can shift put it in second gear and all hell lets loose lol and never struggles for traction not like that knob clarksons said it does. Best bit of all the wife likes it phew

    Glad for you, especialy if the Mrs likes it. Had similar thoughts when I bought the siggy. Did I do the right thing? Christ yes, would only change it for a VXR siggy if there was such a thing.
