    Selling my VXR for a 106 1.1!

    Well then......

    I went to pick Steph up from work tonight and arrived a little bit early. Whilst there I had a lad pull up next to me in a 1.1 106 with a big jap can on the back.

    He started talking to me regarding my car. Asked if it was a replica or the real thing.

    After chatting to him for 5 minutes he came out with something strange. His exact words were "if you'd wanted something really quick you should of got one of these" gesturing at his 106. Intrigued I asked what had been done to it.

    His response was "its standard apart from the can". He then went on to explain the power to weight ratio between the two made his car quicker.

    Iv had a hard day at work so wasnt in the mood to argue. As he left he said if he ever met me on the dual carriageway he'd give me a head start!

    This truly has amazed me that this person is convinced of the sheer power of his 106. Anyone else ever met anyone this dillusional?

    So iv decided. The VXR is going. Im after a really fast car now. Im getting a 1.1 106!

    The amazing bit was he never once seemed like he was trying to wind me up.

    He was being deadly serious, bless him!

    My mate was like that about his 1.1i saxo, trying to convince me it would be faster than my 1.6 16v- because of the weight of mine, his short shift kit, alloys, backbox and induction kit.

    I did the decent thing and caned him muhahaha!

    Maybe if it was a 106 GTi or the Saxo equivalent on a twisty back lane they might and I say might have the advantage on cornering ability. Straight line speed I'm not so sure. They are light and have IIRC about 120bhp for a 750kg car.
    Probably the ONLY Astra Mk3 sitting on Corsa D SXI rims!
    And Now a Diesel on Discs all round!
