HELLO AGAIN GUYS AND GALS
« on: January 28, 2015, 09:56:08 pm »
Hello again guys, iv been away a couple of years but im back :)) getting rid of my ape was the worst thing i did buying a corsa vxr to replace it, unfortunatley it ate its gearbox every 5000 miles,along with lots of other issues!!
So got myself a 595 on saturday and i have fell in love with abarth once again, very very happy to be back on this forum due to the vxr online forum being the biggest load of balls on the internet, everytime you asked a question on there you got slated but hey ho glad to get off there and back on here :))

So hi guys

    yeah it had 3 gearboxes in it in 15000 miles, it was only 189 bhp so its not that much really, my ape tuned was 200 ish and that is fine, I just thin Vauxhall had a contract with Cadbury's to make gearboxes for the corsa vxr's haha

    Welcome back. Driven an Astra VXR, that was an experience! Horses for courses though and all that.  595 is a great alternative,  get some pics up when you can. Just watch your caps lock button ha ha.

    Vauxhall just doesn't tickle my fancy, vxr corsas are the most common, horrible boy racers cars in britain, genuinely horrendous and more often than not drove my total scum so welcome back to the Abarth world! :)

    The pedal on the left is called a clutch it helps lengthen the life of the gearbox if you use it during changes ;)  :P
