Just testing the water as I'm not sure whether I want to sell the VX but if there's any interested parties, please step forward...
 
54 plate Coral Blue VX220 Turbo.
36,300 miles.
HPI Clear.
Full service history/work from Vauxhall, Thorney Motorsport, MMG, PSR and Matthew Bentley.
Taxed til February 2015, MOT September 2014.
 
I have owned the car since 18,000 miles and travelled to York to purchase it. A previous owner had spent a few thousand at TMS replacing the shocks (sachs), fitting a Miltek, LSD, uprated clutch and the remap/geo.
 
Since then I have looked after the car pretty meticuously and I would like to think it's pretty well known on this site and therefore people know how well I've looked after it.
 
Here's a list of some of the modifications :
 
LSD, VXR Turbo, VXR Injectors, Nitron NTR's (40mm) (18mths old), EP 1" ARB, EP Reduced Bump steering arms, Moto Concept IC, Miltek 200 cell cat, Larini Backbox, Balance Shaft delete, OE Pulley with Idler delete, Sachs Uprated Clutch and plate, CS Tophat, CS Thermostat and Boost Gauge, Gearbox breather, Dave H/DG custom airbox/80mm pipework/AMM, JK Seats, TRS 4pt Harnesses, JB Harness Bar, TAT Pedals, ATS DTC's on Yokohama AD08's, AP 295 Bells/Rotors, RS4-2 fronts RC5+ rears, HEL Brake lines, Upgraded HCB's and track rod ends/ARB fixings all changed recently, Original Diffuser modded by Lee. Interior mostly done by Dave the Trimmer. Setup by Matthew Bentley Racing. Mapped by Courtney Sport. Armourfended in most strategic areas.
 
There's probably more items I've added but that's a fairly comprehensive list...and I have a huge folder of receipts and paperwork to go with it. I have the original seat runners (not the seats) and the rear OE undertray if the diffuser does not float your boat.

 

Alot of the work has been done over the last 18 months and is therefore in great condition. It's put away during winter months and generally only comes out to play during sunny intervals.

 

Numbers wise 280bhp/312ftlbs.
 
I'm looking for £14,000 with the hardtop or £13,500 without.
 
Any questions please ask. As I said, I'm still unsure at this stage whether I want to sell.
 
Thank you for looking.

I was going to say something along those lines, but didn't want to damage our long-standing agreement. But Rob's car has quietly sat atop my top three cars ever since I saw it at Snetterton and chatted with Rob about it. The Wolf-machine does sit at joint number 3 with he Vock-mobile.

Just to add, Pro Alloy Radiator fitted. Alpine IPod compatible radio. No sign of any blistering anywhere on the paintwork/body. Power flex engine mount inserts with OE mounts replaced less than 5k miles ago. Only items required to be replaced in my ownership : new 100amp alternator and battery. More photos to follow.

I am shocked Rob! A spin in this car led me to buying my VX a few months later.

Originally Vauxhall in Grimsby I think, I'll have to check that...along with Thorney.
