    Default VXR Model years 07/08

    Guys,

    There seems to be a lot of overlap on the 07/08 models on network Q for which power output the cars have. No being one to trust a sales guy, is there a conclusive way to know which model you are looking at
    - 255 or 280?

    AFAIK the change over was on 56 plates so they are the ones you need to check.
    As per In a states's post if you look at the drivers door pillar sticker as long as it says 206 its the 280 version.

    As I said, there are some on Autotrader / NetQ that are being advertized on 08 plates and saying that they are 255ps version which is a bit od - maybe leftovers that didnt get registered.

    Are there any spec differences to bother about, as the power can soon be adjusted.

    Most 56plates are 255 and the odd 07 plate but everything further on should be 280ps.

    Differences are Suspension + new ids system, New ECU + new map and uprated air box, power difference is only noticed when doing a 0-80 sprint where the 280 would be a little in front, if it was a rolling start from 80 I would imagine there wouldn't be anything it.
