    Default Should I sell the edition 100 and go VXR

    Whilst in a location for work today I drove past a vx dealer and almost crashed as I saw the deal of the century!
    A vxr vectra 56 plate 3100 miles on the clock arden blue, uprated sports exhaust from vxr racing, suspension vxr racing,sports button remap vxr racing 312bhp zeons, satnav ooh loads and loads of extras, well as the sales guy told me every extra you could have .as it was the funniest story it was the district managers car until he got banned for drink driving at christmas.

    The price wait for it..........................wait..............wait ..

    £14995................. definately considering it trying to convince the misses.

    What we recon, wonder how much spoons paid for his

    Buy it !!

    I paid £16,500 for mine with 2000 miles on an '07 plate with all the extras

    The only thing I'm missing is the 888 EDS remap and suspension (well, that is until about 10:00am this morning, when it'll all be fitted..)

    I've been told to keep away from the exhaust as the VXR doesnt need it (the original exhaust is by Remus anyway and is good for 300-310 BHP)

    I've got the suspension going on it tomorrow yep... and 888 Racing wheels, and 300 BHP remap....

    £14,999 is a deal though... very good

    EDIT:..... although it wont make any difference (except road tax will be cheaper) ..... it may be the older 255 model with the older suspension software, suspension dampers etc etc.. there were some revisions to update the 280 model

    Definately The New 280 Model As It Is A 56 Plate And Seen The Vin Document Where It Is Stated, The Exhaust The Sales Guy Told Me Is Milntec System Sold By Vxr, Nothing Really Can Do As It's Fitted, Only Downside Is That The Guy Had Kirbed The R/h Alloys Front And Back Obviously When He Was ****ed, They Won't Replace Or Fix Due To Price How Much To Refurb Alloys They Are Quite Badly Cained Upon The Edges.

    The Miltec exhausts are very good. Dont get me wrong, having it fitted is not a bad thing, its just that for the money, its not worth changing apparently. If you've got it ... great.... if you havent, keep the original.

    I got 4 wheels refurbed for around £170... but I've heard others getting wheels refurbed for £25 per wheel !!

    It'll be the higher road tax if its a 56 plate. Only very early 06 plates (before the the end of March 06) will have the lower £205 tax.
    As to the power, its borderline as to if its the 255PS or 280PS as they changed over around that time. The only way to tell is to look at the plate in the pillar near the drivers door, it'll have the power ouput stamped on it in KW.

    255PS = around 190KW
    280PS = around 208KW

    I'd say if you gonna pay all that extra road tax make sure you get a 280PS


    Edit: just seen your post about it being a 280PS, thats ok then
