    Why didn't anyone tell me turbo's were this much fun??

    I moaned like a ******* for the last 4 months waiting for the VXR but shit the bed I absolutely love it.

    It's a complete animal when you start throwing it about and putting the slipper down but I had a trip through london earlier down to Hampton Court and I could have been driving a 1.2 Corsa it was that easy.

    Definitely makes you chuckle when you remember some of the stick it got from the press when it launched.

    And the best thing by far is the noise it makes...love it

    Pics will be up tomorrow!

    Nah it's sorted, more or less.

    Work starts on monday. Interior stripped out for sound deadening and cables.

    i also found the joys of a 2L turbo engine earlier this year.

    for the first few weeks i could not stop smilling like a cheshire cat. even when stuck in town traffic.
    still puts a smile on my face once on an open road

    enjoy it and glad it was worth the wait

    Same here. Except i went for a 3.6 lump with TWO turbos strapped to it. (see A5TRA 59ORT's and my sig. ) Mines just a bit heavier than a VXR.

    Awesome feeling isn't it. Like a big boot kicking your ar5e!
