Interesting. How heavy is the ST then? Around 1200kg?

I had the ESP in sport mode. Would that kill any torque etc?

It was a private plate but 09 year. The gap may have been bigger but I honestly couldn't tell for sure. Pretty sure it wasn't the nurburgring edition as it didn't have the logo on.

Some minor mods I think. The magazines quote the 0-60 times as being about the same.

I didn't realise the VXR was heavier. What is it's non overboost BHP?

Not sure but not much, maybe 1.5 or 2 seconds. Only a straight line. He was annoyed because as pointed out above, the VXR has between 10 and 20 more BHP in stock vs stock (which mine is). But the ST has 200bhp on overboost and more torque which is what sealed it.

He did concede that the ST is better anyway having read various reviews but added the VXR is old now and when Vauxhall release a new one, it will destroy the ST on all fronts

Keep dreaming lol

Tried. No interest first shot, one watcher at the 2nd attempt with several days remaining. Also advertised at work, admag and gumtree. Nobody cares about winter tyres in summer so I wasn't expecting much interest but as soon as the Daily Mail publish the mandatory ice age forecast, people might be interested.
