    confused VXR 280Bhp

    My mate has just bought a VXR 280Bhp (to use as a taxi!!!!)mad **** !!
    He's wondering if theres anywere in the northeast area that fits dump valves and has experiance with this model car ?
    He did phone up somewere and they argued that there was no such car as a 280 bhp vxr but they'd have a go with a one for an astra vxr !!
    Needless to say he told them to f**k off and asked me to ask the good old members at vectra-c !
    He is willing to travel within reason and he's based in newcastle upon tyne !!!!
    Any help would be much appreciated !!

    Its not just the fuel. Extra insurance and double road tax doesnt make is a very cost effective vehicle for a taxi.
    Bet the punters enjoy it though
