How was the VXR before the box died? Like my Peugeots but they are a bit slow in a straight line, the turbo should sort yours out

To be fair it was a lovely car to own, drove really nice but the handling was pants, although fast it felt heavy and not chuck-able round corners the best thing about it was the remus exhaust i put on it , the pops and bangs were beautiful and the noise it made was immence, sadly as with all vauxhalls the engine and gearbox is just chocolate and it chewed up its 2nd gear

This sounds like it will be a great project and one I'll follow with much interest.

Loving your appreciation of french hatches, the red and yellow ones are my personal favourites.
I don't suppose you spotted the stripped out track styled diablo red 106gti on ebay last year? It looked mint!

There seems to be a drastic disconnect between the long list of things you want to do to it...and how long you keep your cars (generally). We'll see who's right in 6 months time eh? ;-)

I thought you'd have liked having a new car with that Focus you had a while back - wasn't fast enough though?
