Just wanted to introduce myself as a first time VX220 owner. I don't pick it up until next weekend but done the test drive and sorted the deal today. Red, 2.2, 38k, KY02 LLE. Will get a photo on here, maybe tomorrow got to dash tonight.
Needs a little costmetic touch here and there but hope nothing too serious. Worst bit is a little crack at the bottom of the driver's B-pillar where it meets the sill.
I had been looking at Elises (is that a dirty word here?) and admit I had kind of forgotten about the VX220. But having looked into them and driven one I preferred it. Gearbox doesn't have the same amount of guess work to find the right gear, plus the brake servo doesn't mean every stamp of the brake is straining sinews and hoping something happens. Along with not having to worry about the K-series engine and the inevitable head gasket.
Anyway, if anyone is in the Chester/Cheshire area, knows of good garages that can take care of it feel free to let me know.
I'll be keeping my eyes open on the road, but can't remember when I last saw one out in the wild in this neck of the woods.
