    Looks like the coupe is staying then....

    Had a phone call yesterday from the dealer i'm buying the VXR from. Finance company won't touch the deal because the coupe is in negative equity....gotta love those fantastic vauxhall residuals.

    There's other options but decided to stick with the coupe for now, I don't keep cars long and I don't think I can stomach the loss the VXR will make in a short period.

    I haven't driven it in a few weeks but took her out today and I must admit it put a big smile on my face, even with my install knackered, dodgy brakes and seriously bouncey back end

    The 1.8 even feels like a rocket compared to my gutless 1.6td focus.

    Some retail therapy is needed to raise my spirits....I hope LMF aren't busy tomorrow

    That's one of my fave coupe's mate. Love the Veccy wheels.

    U got rid of the VXRacing stickers or is that an old pic?
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    This is an old pic, but the VXRacing stickers will be coming off in the next couple weeks.

    As said, keep it mate, looks much better than any VXR would IMO ( not biased towards a Coupe at all )
    Mr Sploodge, Accept No Imitations!
