    course you can mod it

    mods would probably just invalidate the warrenty for the modified part (i would have thought)

    Welcome to the VXR club Paul, think you may need a name change , great choice of clour as well if i do say so myself

    With regards to mods you are wrong im afraid you wont invalidate your warrenty if you go to VXRPC or Thorney as both are accepted by Vauxhall.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
