Hi all, some of you may have seen my SXi before. I bought it in February 2012 and went from this:

To this:

Then after a long search and a lot of travelling to view VXRs that turned out to be rubbish, I found my ideal VXR pretty much on my doorstep. So I bought it!
Here she is the day I bought her:

And the day I picked her up:

Done a few mods so far. A few things from my SXi went straight into this, and a few new things. Firstly, LED DRLs and 8000k HIDs:

Blue window switches, steering wheel controls and mfd conversion, all from my SXi

Blue 'R's all round:

Footwell lights:

And a cheeky shot from my bedroom window:

Also transferred the Hekos from my SXi, you all know what they look like.

Progress will be fairly slow due to cash reasons but I have some major ideas for this car so keep an eye on it.
Hope you enjoy!

The execution should be fairly simple, just requires a bit of planning, and some money once I have some again haha. It will be similar to Bannon's computer in his dash, but a removable tablet instead.

Went for a meet of all VXRs in Swindon on Sunday. We all met up and took pictures then went for a very good drive through the Wiltshire countryside.
There were 3 Corsas (1 red and 2 arden (including me)), 3 Astras (1 black, 1 red, 1 arden), 2 Astra GSIs (1 black, 1 silver), 4 Astra Burgs (all white obviously) and a black Corsa VXR-R!
Here are the pictures:
