5 ways to make your Vauxhall Astra VXR better
The 237bhp Vauxhall Astra VXR makes a great base for performance tuning. And here’s how to make it even better…
There are definite improvements to be made here, but only if premium equipment is fitted. A simple stage one upgrade is to fit uprated springs – DAP-R and Eibach are both popular options. Coilover kits are available from the likes of KW Automotive, but if you don’t need fully adjustable kit, Bilstein and Koni offer top-quality uprated shock absorbers. A Whiteline rear anti-roll bar is a popular upgrade for many owners, too, with good results reported. Poly bushes are the final worthwhile upgrade.
