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.
