I'll talk to the other admins about Mountune as you have a good point.... if Mountune isn't added we'll probably delete the 888

ford still cover the warranty on the mountune fiesta st185, so if Wads-this corsa is allowed, then the fiesta should.
as far as i know, the only time vauxhall will honour its warranty is with mods by the vxrpc? not 888? may be wrong.

I'm considering buying this car,some people have a problem that the VXR comes as standerd factory tuned.i think offering a car thats ready to run on the track from the box is not only good,its a alot better on your pocket aswell.Vauxhall have gone to a new level.and to say they have only just started mass producing "sport" models,they havent done all that bad!

The extra power is offered by the Vauxhall owned 888 Performance Centre and as far as I can tell Vauxhall still cover the warranty. To me this isn't much different to an AMG "tuned" Merc..... however the Ford Fiesta ST185 I also added IS tuned (I hadn't fully read the review where I found the laptime until now) so I'll delete it and the Cadwell Park lap time.

I looked at the Vauxhall side there is no option list added were you can order the extras.. autocar listed the parts which are all aftermarket.. Resmus exhust remap chip lowering springs

I was under the impression that the remap and exhaust were optional extras available when ordering the car rather than after market tuning..... if option I'd argue this is just a different version (like the various Clio versions).

If thats not true I'm happy to have it deleted (I only added it because of the EVO group test and new Cadwell Park lap time).

btw the Corsa is Germany not UK.. every VXR (beside the Monoaro) is build and developt by OPC

we should delet this car... it is a tuning kit no production car... that is what autocar.co.uk. claims...
