    Default Thinking of changing the Vectra for a Zafira GSi

    As above, with our second child on the way, I'm thinking that it maybe better to change the vectra for a Zafira Gsi, I've always wanted one.

    They do make stupid money but hell you only live once, I have to convince the wife now, as it's really her car (I have company car) Now do I trade the Vectra in Standard and sell mods on or sell it on ebay etc as is?

    Ballan22direct is thinking of doing the same thing. There is something about them though which makes them look pretty smart

    There was a time when the only people carrier was an espace. Families have squeezed kids in saloon sized cars for years.

    True, I don't doubt it, I just think a Zafira will make life easier for the wife, easier to get little ones in and out of car seat etc...

    Vehicle : SRi


    Engine : Z22SE (2.2 Petrol)

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 137000

    Maverick had a highly tuned one, give him a shout if you want any info, think he had nearly 300bhp out of it.

    Or cast your eye over Andy's CDTI for sale.

    Good choice, I have had two of them over a 4 1/2 year period. The Zafira GSi will feel older than a Vectra C as it is from the previous generation Vauxhall's, but still alot of fun.

    I reckon that once your wife gets used to the slightly higher driving position and space and also the extra performance when needed, she won't be disapointed at all.

    By now, most cars that will have had turbo failure will have had them replaced.

    The turbo issue is mainly down to ownership ignorance.

    Thats a fair point, but once you have something like a Zafira (no matter which model), you would never go back to something like a Vectra as a second car.

    Very true, when we had our GSi's, just the ease of putting the pushchair in the boot was so easy as there is no boot lip to overcome. That alone made it so much better than my Vectra C.

    Yep, I did and loved every minute of it, I still see our second one around near me and wish I still had it.

    I do prefer the GSi than the second generation Zafira VXR though. But the original GSi will become more popular next year, when the Zafira C is launched, the range topper will again be a GSi.

    The VXR is being dropped after the current car finishes.

    You guys are making it even hard for me to resist now, I have found a local car in Arden blue on a 54 plate with 35K on it for £7K is this a good price? I don't know if it's worth trading the Vectra or trying to sell it via ebay etc....or perhaps putting it back to standard to trade and sell the mods on, although that would mean having to do deals with people as I don't have the standard parts.
