    Default Went to look at another VXR

    This time a much cheaper 255PS ............ and ........... all seemed ok until the salesman started it up........what a noise!! The 280PS version I tried never seemed this noisey .
    Just a booming burble that resonananted throughout the whole car. Well that was enough to put me off! Give me my rattly old diesel any day. It was really loud - too loud for me.
    In all fairness the noise went off a bit when the engine was revved. But at idle I think it would honestly give me a headache it was that bad.

    As I said, I had no problems with the 280PS one I tried last year, just this 255PS one was awful. . I've heard the 255PS ones are worse I and wouldnt consider a 255PS version based on this.

    I'm not sure exactly what changes went in to the 280 to reduce boom, but they worked, as the noise my 280 makes is just enough not to wind me up the wrong way on a long run.

    Similarly with the suspension: it's a subtle difference, but the 280 setup seems more keen to go around corners without losing anything in the ride dept.
