    Default Looking to upgrade from Vectra B

    What would you guys recommend I go for if buying a Vectra C? I currently have a Vectra B 2.6 GSi.

    My budget is 5K max and am torn between the 2.0T, 1.9CDti 150 and the 3.2 GSi.

    I'm not bothered about MPG to be honest I just want the car to be quick and reliable.

    Are sunroof's mega rare on C's or is it me?

    Anyone?

    Sunroofs do appear to be very rare. Although the 150 CDTi is a very quick car, its not really a match to the GSi or the 2.0T...

    Fuel economy is fantastic on the 1.9 and in my opinion has a perfect blend of power and economy. For example, I by no means drive it like miss daisy but it performs well and manages between 580 and 620 to tank (Granted, there are a lot of m'way miles).

    The CDTi can be tempremental but reliable if looked after, oh and if you choose one, like I, im sure you will sorely miss the sound of the Vec B V6 !

    3.2 GSi would be my choice, but I love V6 petrols, so I'm biased.
    Sunroofs are like rocking horse poo these days, for whatever reasons. Global warming?

    Cheers guys.

    The 1.9 diesels seem to be well regarded, I wasn't aware of reliability issues!

    TBH I prob do fancy a 3.2 as it seems like the natural progression from the 2.6.

    There was a nice one in black on sale on here the other day for £3750......I ummed and aaahed and missed it.

    Pity they didn't do a GSi estate (with a sunroof) as that is what I have now......and it does sound awesome! lol

    3.2 elite estate with a sun roof? Its the same engine but crap soft springs etc. (if you can find one)

    I'd try the turbo too, can easilly be mapped to 230+
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    How about a 3.2 signum design. Best of both worlds then?

    I went from a Vectra 2.6 sri to a 3.2 gsi. I would go for the 3.2 gsi, If you bought anything else other than a V6 I think you would regret it.
    Mpg they are pretty good on a run.
    The performance is great and the 3.2's are also a pretty good spec.

    Here's my old one for sale
