    Question Thinking of a Meriva VXR

    All,

    Me and the family are considering the new Meriva VXR. Compact enough for ourlasses driving skills and the trade off for me it's a VXR. Gets quite a good write up from various mags. I quite like the flexibility of the seats and it's quite a good looker.

    What do you lot reckon??

    Paul.

    I like them, I have seen a few black merivas around here with tints and alloys and they look the part , quite a step down from a vec though ... 1.6 turbo are`nt they, and no weight so will shift I would think ...

    Go for it mate. Maybe worth suggesting to admin that we have an ex-Vec-C owners section like VS do?

    Only thing that puts me off is i'm not sure my **** will fit in them narrow recarros! Going to see if my local delaers getting one in when i go for warranty work on the Vec on Monday. That day might have to come Alex! 1.6 Turbo is correct Bainie flies apparantly.

    Watch this space, might some second hand Irmscher goodies to come!!

    Snap!!

    been thinking the same here, Yvonne has a Meriva which I quite enjoy driving and I thought the vxr version worth a look. Just waiting until the local VX dealer gets his hands on one for us to try

    CYb,

    My local dealers have several vxr's in but not the meriva, going to get ball rolling on Monday i think. Noticed on the net that a couple of online dealers have them with £2.700 off list price. Uk cars full delaer support etc..

    My local dealer has every VXR in black except the Meriva

    It will probably be june before we can really consider buying one but I'm hoping to pick-up an ex VX demo version.

    Incidentally my local vx said Vauxhall don't think the vxr meriva will sell as well as the others in the range -I think they may be surprised at how well it does.

    Might be a decent bargaining chip when you actually go for one, especially if they are down on targets.
