    Thumbs Up Limited Slip Diff now fitted!!!

    Well what can I say.......... OH MY GOD

    Popped to Thorney Motorsport in Milton Keynes yesterday to get my LSD fitted on my Astra VXR. Had a slight concern because £1000 is alot of money to spend, but oh my gosh it was worth it!!!

    The grip from standing start is amazing and the way it comes out of the corners now is truley awesome. Had issues with the wheels spinning coming out of the corners but now there is none what so ever. No understeer just grip, grip, grip and even more grip!!!

    If anyone is thinking of getting one........... DO IT!!!!

    £1000, thats shocking, you get new quaiffe diffs for just over £400. Im glad your happy as they are great but seems very expensive.

    I thought Thorney supplied Quaiffe diffs. Most of that price would be fitting.

    Why go to Thorney........ Vauxhall approval, 3 year warranty (quaife lifetime warranty aswell), already had all work carried out there.............. and best of all they have great customer service

    Could have gone to MPG for £900 but was further for me to travel.

    PS they are £585 from Quaife........... http://www.quaife.co.uk/QUAIFE-Astra...B-Differential
