Now here is a quandry. I drive a Vxr Monaro, enhanced in many ways. But took the Astra VXR home again last night. WOW. I really wouldn't be able to choose between the two for a fun run.
The Astra just engages you like no other car i have driven, it has a visual purpose, hooligan element at the push of a button, but can then be 'just another ordinary hatch' if you ask of it. Whoooosh, Bang exhaust. Silly silly tail out handling, and outragous urge!!
It really is the best kept secret that VX have, and hides behind the bigger VXR stuff.
And then it is half the price of my Monaro. Case closed!!
