    Few recent mods to the VXR

    For all of those that have drove a modified VXR with standard brakes, they will know how bad they are! So it was about time I got them upgraded!

    Budget wasn't very high so I went for some EBC discs and Red stuff pads, and I must say they are truely awesome compared to the standard brakes! Had them on for about 500 miles now and Im lovin them, my car now stops lol

    Brakes fitted


    Next few mods were with the rear end. Didn't want to do anything major so done some subtle mods. First was to remove the rear wiper (may go back on in the winter)


    Next mod was a very small and cheap mod, but makes a massive difference to the rear of the car!

    Changed the red "R" to a blue "R"


    Makes the rear end look alot better now!



    Hopefully some more mods to come before VAG-OPEL show belgium

    Looks great, black boot strip or a colour coded one and would look even better. Good work. What sort of bhp you running mate, and are the brakes a standard fit. I may be looking to up rate my front pads and discs when mine wear out.

    Running 290bhp with LSD, brakes standard size. Made a massive difference! Not sure about colour coding boot strip, makes it look too blue in a silly way.

    i reckon that would look awesome if you sprayed the boot strip, rear splitter and wheels in black.

    I like the "R" ... nice touch.

    PS: That doesn't mean to say I don't like the rest, just the "R" was worth commenting on as I've seen the other mods before.
