Thread: Spoons gone mad......

    Default Spoons gone mad......

    .... and just ordered this.... to replace the existing VXR one....

    The new rear diffuser is much bigger, however, its very very subtle and you will only notice the difference if you are looking for it... (or if I've just run you over !!)

    DONT ask the price ........cos I must be MAD...... ...... its only supposed to be fitted to the limited 250 editions.... but, you pay your money and things happen..... (Think of a price this bit of plastic is worth and x10)

    Gets fitted next Wednesday... 1 day before the Total Vauxhall Magazine Photo shoot.

    888 have also kindly donated part of their workshop for the day so that Harry and me can detail the car indoors !!... Many thanks to 888

    well I tried to hype it up for you lol....

    it is tho, aerodynamic .. it stops the air getting trapped in the rear bumper, and guides it out the rear... some cars have a mesh cut out for the same purpose ..

    Isnt it the Elise vx220 etc that have these as standard ?

    Try putting a BIG block of cheese on the floor and running over it. You will have sliced cheese ready for sandwich's.
    Thats what you will have to live on now for the rest of the month.
    If it's cost you a fortune.
    Dont forget the pic's of it before you go to the TV photo shoot

    I'll get some pics as always - however, I've seen them fitting these to the new SRi bumpers and its barbaric... they SAW the old SRi inserts off and then Glue these new ones into place.... etc etc...

    So I may have a black painted VXR center insert up for sale soon, if I can get it off the car without breaking it !!

    It'll add another small bit of a story to the VXRD's creation and VXRPC heritage....

    .... but I will pass on the Touring Car Front Bumper 'eyebrows' !!!! lol
