    Agree with most comments on here but, for what it's worth as all of this is subjective at best, a standard S3 would struggle against an Astra VXR.

    Even when mapped, with it's weight, would make most think think.

    However, the only Astra VXR's i see these days tend to be in the rear view mirror. And agreed, they do look nice even from that perspective.

    He's no mate. Story is simple.

    His fiance lived 10 ish doors down from me. Coming up the main road he over took me on a blind corner, and nearly killed himself and his fiance ( my girlfriend now) in the process. I had to lock up so he could swing back in.

    She remembered the car - and flagged me down one day to say sorry....been together 4 months now

    Because it's all the fake four wheel drive hatred and additional weight of an S3 but without the ability to produce the power to make up for it?

    Oh God, it's Jardo.

    Shouldn't you be on bimmer forums chatting about how you are all drift gods? Or trawling the ovlov forums with the other over 50's looking at how to increase mpg and getting hard over your side impact protection system?

    I raced my mate in his standard VXR (on a closed road obviously ;)) and off the line, I hammered him upto 60mph, after that though he started reeling me in lol the 4wd really does make a difference though! (and my friends lack of talent...)

    Seeing as my last car I sold in January was a Astra VXR I thought id share my experience. I never had a s3 get away from me. On the 'A' roads i had to work alot harder. The vxr's engine always had power in whatever gear you found yourself in, and it would boost from about 2300rpm upwards. Its was far better in the corners than my current B8 A4 sline, and the sline is a great car to drive. The only reason I sold it was I really needed a 5 door and its price was taking a massive hit with the upcoming vxr, and I always wanted to get back into an audi. Another factor was almost every set of lights id have some muppet trying to race me. Really no need for it during rush hour traffic??

    I had it from new. I would have another.

    I drove my mates one today and it didn't feel that fast the front wheels kept spinning when changing gear its completely standard but the exhaust sounds good, Oh and my mate who owns the vectra thinks my car is faster and iv only got a B5 TIP is he right or is his car just underpowered?

    In all honesty mate, I think there's something wrong with his car then. The Vec VXRs are seriously fast, the chassis and suspension isn't up to the job at all, but in a straight line they are mental. Is his a 255 or a 280bhp?
