    I also fitted the Milltek system this evening in the dark as well

    But the long bit was waiting for the paint to dry, but to do the brakes takes about 30 minutes a side.

    It was, but the friends and family discount is not at 17% like the rest of the range, so it would cost me about £9000 on top of my GSi to get a VXR the same spec as my GSi, also the VXR is not as quick as mine anyway.

    OK I could do the same to a VXR and make it quicker than mine, but that would be another couple of £K.

    Mine is paid for so we are keeping it, may get a V8 for the Landy instead

    just my opinionmate but good decision i 'd say as the new zaffy doesnt look as good as the old anyway and as you say yours would waste a vxr anyway

    The handling of a VXR is better than the GSi, but with mine having Bilstiens, correct offset 18" wheels and Yoko's I would say it is now on par with the VXr.
