I've been contemplating, looking and thinking about one for a while. I want a Turbo or a Supercharged example which should be suffice for Sunday blatting. I'd love either a modified one or a good clean standard example - Kind of the two extremes. 

 

Alternatively, I'm open minded to a supercharged NA although I have been adverse to this due to potential reliability issues although the more I read, the more I'm convinced it should be fine if done properly. 

 

I don't mind Cat D if it has been repaired properly and the damage wasn't extensive.

 

Whatever the car, it needs to be incredibly well documented and well cherished.

 

Cheers

 

Andy

No longer needed. Now bought myself a very nice turbo after many hours of research and several viewings :)

Yep! Really pleased with it.  The timing just happened to work well. I've viewed a couple, walked away from 2 and finally found the right one after going over it in detail and performing all the usual checks.

All I need to do now is find some time to enjoy the thing! :)

I suppose he did get a second opinion from the forum as I had a look over the car :happy: 

 

Not been on here for a while since selling my VXT in 2010 for an Aston and a Caterham. Brought back a lot of good memories looking over the VXT, fabulous car :wub:

Superb... Not seen you post in ages. Nice to see things are still heading in the right direction. An Aston and a Caterham is a superb two car garage. What did the OP buy in the end?

I'm guessing the red VXT from the 'I think I may be selling my VX today' thread.

Aston was sold in August 2014,after 4.5yrs of pure pleasure, nothing like the VX but what a car, many happy memories. 

 

The Caterham Superlight I had was then p/x a month later for a Gulf liveried Caterham R500 Duratec which is just like sticking wet fingers in an electrical socket :o

This now sits beside my old man XF V6DS ;)

 

 

The OP bought a VX220 ;)

 

Maybe he'll let me have a shot but then again he might refuse as it could be too quick for an old bloke  :lol:
