The reasontop gear slated it was because....

1. Clarkson hates Vx
2. They removed the fuse for the traction control
3. They removed the fuse for ESP

Driven by a knob with all the stability programs disabled...What did they think would happen.

Nice buy Jonah! I swapping mine too. Stripped the parts off it yestereday. Sold the grille and Skirts, just the splitter and VXR alloys to sell!
