    No VXR for me :-(

    My local dealer has had a Black VXR in for a while now and I avoided temptation to go and have a look, but whilst on route to do the weekly shop with the Mrs she persuaded me to go and have a look around and try it out for size.

    Was I shocked when I couldn't get a comfy seating position, chair right back and as low as it would go, steering columb up and extended and still could not get me knees under the wheel - meaning no playing with the finances to get one now . Spotty sales kiddie suggested we take the front recaro out and I drive from the rear bench, which was funny for like a nano second. I dont understand it though as I drove the Mk V SRi Turbo fine no problems with seating at all.

    Just as well really, save havin to sell one of me kidneys to get one.

    Im the same mate, I sat in the VXR in my local showroom and was so uncomfortable. The seats squashed me and i couldnt get a good position. I also prefer the SRI seats in my mates car.

    I said this in another topic too.

    Don't bother with the Focus ST then either - the seats are even worse in those than the VXR. Sat in a Focus ST and had the seat all the way back and it still wasn't far enough back. Yet, I have the seat in my own car about 3 notches off the end stop, and have no problems with the seat in my Mum's Fiesta. Wierd.
