    Default Vxr Performance Centre

    Hi Ya Guys And Girls

    I Haven't Been Around For A While But Merry Christmas And Happy New Year And All That !!!!

    Anyway Back To More Important Matters

    Triple Eight Are Going To Open A Vxr Performance Centre Soon
    At Work We've Just Done Some Signage For Them (which Obviously Caught My Eye)
    I Had A Quick Look On Their Site On The Interweb And Smack Bang In The Middle Of The Home Page Is A Rolling Sign Saying


    " Are You Vxr Enough! " Vxr Performance Centre Coming Soon

    Might Be Worth Keeping Tabs On To See What They Come Up With (seeing As My Warrenty Is Up Soon)

    Any One Got Any Other News About It?

    If Someones Already Done A Thread On This My Apologises For Repeating

    That does sound promising. Do you have a delivery address for the signage Liam? I don't want to know it, but it would be nice to know what part of the country.

    I spoke with Dougie at Vauxhall regarding this during my visit.

    The VXR Performance Centre will be no where on the same scale as OPC in Germany. OPC do car development work an build etc.

    The VXR Performance Centre will concentrate to begin with on upgrades to the latest range of Vauxhall cars, like :-

    VXR Brake upgrades to non VXR cars
    VXR Suspension Upgrades to non VXR cars
    VXR Exhaust Systems for all turbo and many non turbo cars, these systems are in fact manufactured by Milltek.
    VXR Style Line Kits 1 & 2 (Style Line Kit 2 is due by the spring at the latest)

    The VXR style line kit 2 will be full bumper replacements rather than a skirt being added to the bottom of the bumpers like style line kit 1.

    Rumours of re-maps etc are not true at this time, due to engine durability testing, it is unlikely in the short to medium term that they will offer factory approved and warrantied re-maps. But you never know what they might do in the future.

    The only way I can see them doing this is by the customer signing a disclaimer.

    Other products like upgraded intercoolers may be offered but supplied from a different source, I have an idea who the possible supplier could be, but can't disclose it at this time, but these items will not of course be factory warrantied, so it would be no different than taking your car to any of the UK tuners.

    Regarding Exhausts

    Currently in the VXR branded systems are made by Milltek and have the following availble now :-

    Astra G Hatch SRi/GSi Turbo
    Astra G Coupe Turbo
    Zafira GSi Turbo
    Astra H VXR
    VX220 Turbo
    VXR220 Turbo
    Zafira VXR (Coming soon)
    Vectra VXR (Coming soon)
    Astra H (2.0 Turbo & possibly 1.9 CDTi)
    Vectra C (TBC)

    All non Turbo Astra G Petrol should have a system available at some point this year.

    The VXR Centre is very well laid out with a nice customer viewing gallery over the workshop and there will possibly be a real Astra VXR BTCC car converted to be used as an arcade game like you see at shows.

    I personally hope the prices will be kept keen as to attract customers. It is worth noting that will not be a rolling road, which again rules out the re-mapping at this time.
