Ooooh, I like [:D] Dont know why, but looks wise, I always thought it looked a heck of a lot better than the Lotus, even though its a Vauxhall. You'll be having some fun in that.

Is it the turbo or the N/A engine?

I know this is really unimportant when you buy a speedy car like a VX220 but what colour do the dials light up at night?

Red really suits it IMO. I dont think there is a better colour out there.

Its the N/A 2.2 one - I thought about a turbo but it would have cost a lot more, and the 2.2 still has Boxster S performance and allegedly better handling than the turbo

The dials (ie the rev counter and speedo, nothing else lights up) light up a murky yellow/whiteish colour - the whole dial is backlit rather than the numbers, if you get what I mean - it a "stack" pod, pretty basic but I think they are very lightweight

The car is sublime round corners, I've never driven anything like it [^]

I have heard that the N/A handles better than the turbo aswell. Lets face it, the car is going to be faster than most other things on the road anyway.

Are you going to the Midlands meet this weekend? - you might want to do some stretching to prepare yourself, I have to be honest its a nightmare to get in and out
