    There was a thread on this a while back iirc.

    Looks quite cool in a strange way... although I don't see them selling many. Focus ST for slighty more?....

    Corsa VRX could be pretty cool.

    I can appreciate the idea but unfortunately I agree with Sten on this one, tbh I never liked the Meriva anyway, ugly looking thing IMO and doesnt really get saved when it has the vxr look

    I personally hate the idea, what kind of racing background does it have? Its like driving an RS galaxy. Yes it looks cool and it sells but to me it defeats the object of it. By all means have a sports trim option for it but i dont see why they put it in the same bracket as the monaro and all that.

    Should of been de-tuned a bit and badged as an SRi.

    I can see what vauxhall are trying to do but for me it damages the VXR brand. The Zaffy is pushing the limits, but this is a bit too far IMHO.
