    Thumbs Up hello

    Just want to say hello to everyone, Got my Astra vxr on the 29th Dec after waiting 6 months (arden blue, 19's, cruise, climate, ads+) and am NOT dissapointed, I sold my 53 plate impreza wrx to get this and i am well impressed. The ride in the VXr is smoother the turbo does'nt try to snap your spine, it looks soooo much better,handling is sharp, The build quality is better, no chavs have one ( at the moment anyway) and i think it is quicker as well (still taking it easy) the only thing i miss about the scooby is the sound, but hell this car is really really good, better than i expected.

    So if your waiting for yours to be delivered be exicited, and whatever you do, do not listen to halfwits saying that the focus or golf are a more complete car. I'm sure when your'e over taking one you will not be thinking well that car does have red piping around the grill (a plus point according to autocar) , or ooh does'nt that orange look nice!! (saw one the other day and it looked horrendous) the vxr is a truly good car. They will be thinking hey i should of bought one of those VXR's they look much better and are faster. Just thought i'd say hello.

    Smile

    Aussie was does the Miltek system cost and is it a full system or just a rear section. I think i saw it on courtney sport site and saw an oval outlet, but i'm quite taken with the trapeziod thingy. Good to be welcomed

    thorneymotorsport are the official distributor for the Vauxhall VXR range of performance exhausts. The system can be fitted by your dealer so it wont effect warrenty there is a cat back system for £450, no major power gain but
    imporves the throttle response and power delivery and gives a very nice note
    the full system is about £1050 and £100 fitting gives a 15 bhp increase, improves power delivery and throttle response and once again an amazing note and popping on the gear changes at hi rev and sounds very nice at cruising speed
    www.thorneymotorsport.co.uk

    they have a few videos of the astra with the full exhaust fitted.

    I have the full system, and once bedded in, makes the car sound fantastic. Your dealer can supply and fit the system.
