    Wink Where to start? :D

    Im very pleased with the feed back and thank you all very much.

    My budget currently is £4000. The car that I want is basically a 1.8 or 1.9 facelift with vxr exterior and interior so call it replica loll

    But the budget needs to be stretched for that. I want to buy a car with relatively low mileage. Colour being black or silver. If its a pre facelift then I would have to make some money and upgrade it to a facelift. Then the vxr modding is delayed. So then the next stage for the vxr mods would come at a later date.

    So i have no idea with how im going to get all this happen as I really plan to have a facelift vxr replica in 1.8/1.9 with atleast 190 bhp.

    So i have no clue where to start and how to start. I would think its buy buying a car. I was considering buying and Sri but will other trims comply with my plans in the near future?

    Well thats the plans people!

    If theres any advice for me please do help me out.

    Trim : GSi

    Engine : 3.2 V6


    Mileage : 39k

    Default

    Aren't the SRi XPII's very similar looking to the VXR's? Might be a starting point. Good luck getting 190bhp from a 1.8 though. :/

    I think 190 BHP is a bit optimistic from a 1.8 mate!

    And so is your budget of £4k for a low mileage facelift, specially an XP

    Is that to buy and do mods too?

    Thanks for the replys.
    Well i even bit I said 190BHP optimistically. But it doesnt bother me too much, 150 will do .

    Ermmm the 4K is just for the car it self. My budget for the mods is about £1500 which is separate and will be available to use in November.

    So any further advice?

    Its indeed looking slick. But then again im actually going to stick with black!

    Thanks for the search. You see the problem with the £1500 is that, its tied up in family and won't be available for about a month or something I think!
