Hi guys,

I have just ordered a corsa vxr in arden blue due for delivery late april/early may! I previously had a 2012 corsa d white and black un-limited edition which i wrote of back in january due to flood damage, i then stupidly ordered a red and black limited edition but vx have constantly messed me about since ordering it, twice they have pushed the delivery date back by over a month! so luckily i have managed to change my order to the vixxer! I genuinely cannot wait! going to be a bit of a jump in power! but my insurance has only gone up £100 from a 1.2 to a 1.6T so ijumped at the chance!

This is the first turbo car i have had so am abit of a noob! i know about all the warming up and cooling down things but i was just wondering if there is any running in perioid? and also if anyone could point my in the direction of a front grille vxr badge? ive looked about on ebay but cant seem to find one!

Many thanks in advance!

That's great mate cheers! Might me a stupid question but how do they attach to the grill?
I rubbed a slight bit of super glue all around the back of the sticky pad of the badge on lightly tho no blobs or dripping and pressed hard on where I wanted it and its not budged since pal

Yeah don't superglue it or anythin'! It stays on by itself there's plenty of contact, mines been jet washed more than enough since I put the badge on and it's never budged but at least if I wanna take it off I can 'cause it aint been superglued on.

So after me saying it was a stupid idea to order another LE in this thread

http://www.ukcorsa-d.com/forum/showthread.php?67430-New-car-Red-2013-LE&highlight=Bradbull

u was sticking up for it, arguing your case for the LE, and then u go and get a VXR after and I quote :

I do mostly town driving so I don't need anything quick, plus after my last one being a write off I can't afford to insure anything quicker at the moment due to it being so high! Plus I think the LE is a great looking car and it does everything I need!
:lol::lol:

But great choice buddy!

Haha! well Vx kept messing me about on my LE, so i started to look into vxrs and began to do some insrance quotes and managed to haggle enough to get one which is affordable! i do only do town driving but still nice to have a bit of power there when you need it! Im quite indecisive!

Haha I do mostly town driving aswell but like u said its nice to have the power there when u need it.
And trust me once the VXR arrives, you'll realise where I was coming from on the other thread :) as I did own a red and black LE before

Again great choice!
