    New Vectra VXR in my local Vaux dealership

    Went down to Pursey's today to get some oil and have a yap with the salesman about 2006 Astras.

    He pointed out the VXR in the corner, so I had a poke around.

    Whilst I'm still not keen on the front end of the facelift model (doesn't match the back), this car really is a nice peice of kit.




    Really do like the rims on it....and the brakes.





    Nice arse.







    Please excuse the quality of this pic, I tripped over a Corsa whilst trying to take it. lmao

    I think putting that V6 in an Astra would be keen - it barely fits in the Vectra nose.

    Don't like the dials, too fussy for my liking. Also not sure about the boot spoiler, would have preferred a real spoiler, not a silly little lip.
