    Girlfriends dads new astra vxr!!

    Just went with my girlfreinds dad to pick up his astra vxr in arden blue,
    Looks the feckin nuts!!

    It's got a stage 2 on it with 300bhp on tap!!!!! with an uprated exhaust system..

    Vauxhall took his astra down regal to have the stage two done, and let me tell you now i wish i'd took a spare pair of boxers!!!
    i soiled them front and back .

    Whilst i was there i also managed the blag a test drive in the new corsa vxr, and by christ is it quick!!! got some funny looks in it aswell!!!

    Thing is i took a look in the engine bay and the engine looks tiny!!! you got enough room to swing and cat by it's tail in there lol ( you know what i mean).

    But with this astra vxr we went on the m27 to take it for a drive not intending to rag it as to speak, and he booted it and it was wheel spining right up to 5th gear!!

    That's either a crap driver, or a bad map if the car is spinning in anything above 2nd/3rd, even in the wet.

    a good map should be progressive, otherwise you're gonna go through tyres quicker than Flatley did on his LCR - more than 2 full sets in 12 months!!!!

    sounds like he might need to drive a little more carefully until he gets used to the power though, especially in the wet. else his fun might not last as long as he had planned!!
