Vauxhall Vectra VXR
A quick pitstop for the VXR as we get a foglight fixed
With freezing fog a frequent visitor to the east of England over the past month, the Vectra really picked its time to get a smashed foglight.
Rather than leave it looking like Harry Potter’s spectacles after someone had taken him into a dark alley and given him a good piece of bullying magic, I asked Drive Vauxhall of Bury St Edmunds to fit a new lamp (£158.63). With its second service also carried out this month (£232.38), it’s safe to say the VXR is now fighting fit again.
