I have to say I don't think I've never come across a more biased, one sided site than this in my life. Ever. Not only is it biased, but there are tons of mistakes there too - like the Calibra being described as a '160mph+ coupe' .... or rather 'supercar' :confused:

Then there's the 'Vauxhall to avoid' section which had me in stiches lmao It really is that bad!! Who, for example, would slate what's widely ragarded as one of the best Vauxhall's ever made - the Astra GTE .... and then go on to say that its sucessor the Mk3 Astra GSi (and the Calibra of course) are better, when just about all the car magazines and everyone else on the planet say the GTE is the better, more focused car :confused: Total Vauxhall didn't vote the Astra GTE 16v their number one Vauxhall for no reason ..... and the Calibra didn't even make the top ten lmao
And then there's the Cavalier, or rather Chavalier as it's described lmao Looks like the task was simple for this section when the site was constructed - find just about the worst pictures of a Cavalier available, and then give it some stick!! Anyone can find bad pictures of cars - there are plenty of badly modified Calibra's out there, and then there's the plain steel wheeled 2.0 8v, but do these get a mention?? No. And I take it the author of the site has never heard of the Cavalier GSi 2000 or the Turbo 4x4 or even the SRi 16v, because none of them get a mention in this section either :confused: And apparently 'Cavalier's have NO advantages over Calibra's?? lmao Really?? How about price & practicallity for starters?? And even the looks come down to personal taste - not everyone wants to look like a hairdresser / poser on the move ;) I know which car I'd rather be driving!!

Anyone else got any comments?

Had a read through that site before! There are alot of mistakes and its mega biased. Basically sayin that the calibra is the only good vauxhall! Which we all know is wrong. Now i personally like the look of the calibra more than the cavalier but you dont go slavouring that much s***e. But to be fair there is a couple of points which may be correct. May be. He/she doesnt say much about the 8v either which i own and would like to know alot about. But it is called calibraturbo so what was i expecting???

Sorry for the p**h i have just typed

Gary :)

Just to prove my point, it's not only Cav's that are the victims of poor modifications. Maybe this should go up on the site to make things fair(er) lmao

Chavtastic is a nob jockey and he does want us to kick up a fuss about his garbage site . You are adding fuel to the fire Andy .
He wouldn't write that stuff otherwise unless he realy is on another planet , although his 200mph calibra will be very interesting to see .

Agree on all of the above! Would be good to see one hit 200 (only if dropped from a plane!) so I would love to see it afterwards with his scratty council estate slags near it! He obviously cant pull any real women so has to impress little girls with 200MPH BS! lmao

Maybe the green ones his??
That green Calibra should go up on the site. It's only fair, as he's put up just about the worst Cavalier pictures he could find!

I thought he was going to drop it from a plane!

Look at the picture of the thing he is calling his ex on that site! Woof! Maybe he plans on tying her to the front of his car and dangling a big-mac (or 20?) infront of her using a fishing rod? It would fookin shift then! lmao

To get a genuine 200mph from a Calibra, he would need 450bhp ... at least. How's he going to get that? The LET would have to be binned for a start ...
