Who else can say they have test driven a VXR for 5 wks and a total of 2400 miles?
My insurance have writen the car off and authorised replacement with the dealer for a like for like factory order. Amazingly (with a little help) ive found a blue one with 19"s, climate, cruise, leather, xenon AFl and rear parking sensors.
Only catch being it is £1100 more expensive cos of the AFL and parking sensors although I am minus the smokers pack £50 so £1050 to pay. Informed my insurance that i could possibly have this car by the end of next week and could they come to some arrangement on it reminding them they have to pay for a hire car until my replacement factory order turns up late April. Without any hassle they have gone for it although I have to pay £400 plus my £400 excess. Im in the associate partners scheme so its a little cheaper than the retail prices listed above.
The car in question is not confirmed yet but I will know Monday and if we can have it I will be travelling about 400 miles on Friday to fetch it, again saving costs cos nobody wants to pay the transportation costs. I have a hire 1ltr corsa so it will only cost about £30 to get there then abondon it and put the first 400 miles on my new VXR going home(as if im going to stop when i get there ). Picture it driving a corsa all that way with a tax disc and two number plates it just sounds funny but im up for anything to get me back in a VXR. Missing it like crazy and all I keep readin is how much everyone is loving them.
My first one had no gears when it arrived, got booted n dented on the 5th day and then it tried to kill me(well the mud did) on the 5th week so im glad to be shot of it. It said C F**k U on the plate and lets face it it did 3 times.
Cant bloody wait, all you VXR owners know how I feel except this time I know how good it is and until Monday i aint sure if I can have it or wait till late April.
For anyone reading this who's been involved in the background THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ALL THE EFFORTS!
