    Default Saw a lovely Vec VXR this evening!!!

    I made a flying visit to Ipswich today to see some friends - driving back down tomorrow. As my new bulbs arrived this morning I took the opportunity to fit them this evening and then went out to see how they compared.

    Only got a few minutes down the road when a blue VXR came onto a roundabout as I was leaving it. Hang on I thought - there's a certain person on the forum with a blue Vec VXR who lives in Ipswich - I bet it's him!

    So I whipped round and headed off in 'pursuit'. As I was a good bit behind by now I had to half-guess which exit he took on further roundabouts. Finally I saw it a few cars further ahead and eventually managed to end up right behind him at a set of lights on red - so I gave him a flash of my lights. On green, he took off and I thought "Oh gawd, he thinks I want to race him!!" lol. So I kept up with him, and he wasn't hanging around!!, until he pulled into a Shell station. At last I thought, and pulled up next to him and wound down the window. "Are you Sparky?" I said. "Yes m8" he said. Result!!! It only took a four mile 'chase' to get there!

    Beauuuuutiful car there Mark. As you said in your pics thread, it looks so much better in the flesh. The pics don't do it justice.

    Thanks for the treat of a spin in the car (passenger seat I might add - don't get to envious everybody! - although here's hoping next time I'm in Ipswich I might get to drive it? )

    Your two kids were stars BTW - sat in the back having a whale of a time as you were booting it down that country lane!! And boy does it go - I'll definitely have to get that BSR Stage 3 now to keep up!!

    Oh, and if the trip in the VXR didn't put a big enough smile on my face, the drive back to Nacton just added to it. Started to pass a pimped up Astra (in some horrible light pinkish colour) on the two lane section going past the hospital - before it merges to one lane. He decided to floor it as I got alongside. Ho hum I thought and floored it as well - left him standing as he 'tried' to beat me to be ahead before the lanes merged. I shant say what speed I hit!! He was then up my ar*e until he turned right at the roundabout by that church (with the white cross high up in the air). He gave me three toots as he came alongside. I wasn't sure if it was a "f**k off" toot, or a "nice one" toot - couldn't look, and didn't care, as I was negotiating the roundabout!

    Anyway, I digress...

    Nice meeting you m8 - will let you know next time I'm going to be in Ipswich and we'll go for that drink.

    LOL at you two. Just been in a VXR and you're asking what my bulbs were like!

    They kinda got forgotten about after a four mile pursuit initially and then the dalliance with the Astra! I did pop up something here a minute ago though.
