    Im sure they are just mapped differently, so a remap would bring it up to VXR spec. Not getting rid of yours are you mate?

    I had one not so long ago (3months) Great car absolutely loved it but the running costs were too high for me so i had to get rid. real shame but when needs must and all that. i had the 230bhp model, ripe for a remap, it was no slouch but you could tell it could be a lot more potent. If you're planning on just plodding around town in it i'd suggest something else, if you do alot of motorway driving its a dream on there. hth

    compared to the vec VXR 255, the only difference really is the mapping, also the vectra VXR has a miltek exhaust as standard. And i believe that the industion is better.

    I dont know if the turbo is the same, the vec has a twin scroll turbo for quicker response. But im sure it will do. Im sure you could find that out easily.

    MPG cant be far off the VXR probably 28ish on the book, realistic 25?
