    Not a fan, anyone?

    Not sure if this is a members car but never been one for making a car look like something it isn't. I have to admit it would fool me from the outside but whats the point?

    I like how the seller almost hid the fact that it is a cat c. All the good points to grab your attention, the drawback is almost hidden.

    I like the look, but how disappointed would you be when you planted the right foot.

    Found another 2 while looking for a vxr, seems quite popular. I understand the insurance thing but i just think its a bit lame, like a fake rolex. Showing my age now.

    Yeah if you hadn't pointed out the cat c i would have missed it. Looks like it has a cat c alarm lol.

    It's understandable, but as soon as you see a vxr you automatically think "power"

    Some wee chav in a barried up shoebox is going to have a great story to tell his kids, the day he smoked a vxr in his chariot. You always get the minority trying to race you.
