    Talking VXR Info

    I was going to buy a veccy VXR but the wife came home today from glasgow and said she liked the astra better(after 1 flew past her at warp speed) so help me out with some info please...

    I used to own an astra G just wonder how the vxr compared with its bootsize? aslo i have a new baby so their is a fair amount of stuff that goes with him, just wondering if its managable in the VXR

    Anyone know of any good dealers who have one for sale/demo, preferibly glasgow area but i could go further

    Anything to look out for with the vxr's, any niggles formed yet??

    Cheers in advance guys

    heard about 1 guy on vxlscc, had a rear shunt and the car went up in flames cause the fuse box is in the back, and a lassie in works brothers wheel fell off his vxr (hadnt been removed since the factory)

    but if you go for one arnie clark are doing them cheap, or buy online from the likes of norwich union cars?
    Now has a clio - dont ban me

    boot is a little smaller than the G IMO...and there's slight lift in the front end at around 146mph
    Regal tuned Astra VXR.

    No major problems with my VXR, I would however try and persuede yourselves to try the Zaffy...much more room, just as fast and rarer !
