    They also had some input with a short run of 100 CDTi Mk5 Astra's, as sold by Thurlby Motors. A "special edition" made of all Vx shelf parts.
    0-60 in 6.5 secs and 48mpg- winner!

    Not from Vx shelf parts. The springs aren't Vx, not sure on the dampers, the wheels aren't Vx, the brakes aren't Vx and the remap definitely isn't Vx
    Astra 888 (SRi 1.9 CDTi 120)
    Remapped to 200bhp, 18" wheels, Four pot front brakes, lowered suspension, tinted rear windows, 888 exhaust.

    Triple eight race engineering are a race team. They also serve the general public though through their VXR performance centre who supply and fit various mods. The dont just fit anything, only top stuff. It certainly isnt stuff off the vauxhall parts shelf lol.
