    VXR just arrived *Now with pictures*

    Well after weeks of waiting my Astra VXR turned up on the back of the transporter this morning. After doubts over the colour and actually ordering the car Im really very happy with it, first new car in a while thats gave me butterflies when I seen it. Will try and get some pictures up tonight, its off for PDI at the moment and Ill be fitting the pre-cat replacement to it tonight

    Nice one Dave, another one succumbs to the lure of the VXR. What colour and options did you go for?

    Its in Black and has:
    19" alloys
    Sight and light pack
    Leather pack
    Keyless entry and start
    Climate control
    Cruise control
    IDS+ with CDC
    Electrically folding mirrors
    Adaptive forward lighting
    Bluetooth mobile phone

    only options I didnt go for were parking sensors (they are unsightly) and Sat Nav (have a Tomtom so no point although the colour screen would have been nice)

    Plans wise not a lot, pre-cat front pipe and cat back exhaust, probably change the intercooler and a stage 1 and some tints that aside I plan to leave it as is as its more than enough and I have the MK3;s to play with, plus my mother will be driving this one as well until she decides what shes doing car wise.

    Nickyboy - I had a Black Vectra VXR last year, 888 MK5 and a MK5 SRiT sportshatch but not an Astra VXR to date.

    yes despite constantly moaning about black being to hard to keep. Darren always runs Arden VXR;s so wanted something different, plus looks better in black imo.
