    Default Got her at last.

    Well got up and away from home by 6am and arrived in Blyth at 8.45am and found the garage open so went ahead and completed my deal on the Vectra and at 9.23am I rolled out behind the wheel of my new purchase.

    After seeing a couple of clients one Blyth the other Jarrow I had a long run to Harrogate, followed by a jump up to Pateley Bridge, then onward to the hotel near Clitheroe where I write this.

    Initial impressions? I am truly impressed, lovely car steering lacks a bit of feel but I reckon I will get used to this in a few run's. The tyres fitted to the rear are dreadfully noisy and I will swap them to the front and wear them out ASAP the newly fitted fronts are great very quiet and great grip.

    Engine is very tractable and I found it pulling very well from about 1200rpm with no effort, the CD30 is decent and with my own CD's on tesxt and the sound set to Rock I am happy enough.

    Economy? Well I decided to drive as I intend to go on not ultra economical cruise set at a GPS indicated 76mph all the way along the A1M then about 50 miles cross country on a right roller coaster of a road 16% gradients etc, I am showing 55.4mpg and am I happy with that OH HECK YEH!!!!!

    I simply have to get to the 'skirts of Manchester then Poulton Le Fylde then back to Stewarton tomorrow and I am genuinely excited. This car is going to be my travel buddy for the next few years god willing and I have chosen well I believe.

    Pics and mod's completed list to begin from here

    Its a 150 at the moment and in truth after a 258HP 260 lbs ft torque Saab I was expecting to feel it was a bit gutless but not a bit of it! she is very lusty indeed and seeing as I have made a couple of express overtake moves, I can say I am more than happy with standard mapping, however if a remap increases economy then who am I to deny my car such a useful device!!!!!!

    And thanks Khalid I am more than happy with her mate!!!

    Love the alloys very nice indeed, I am really torn on the grille though in the VXR on blue and red I love it but black I am not so sure I sort of like the chrome for some reason though may swap on an Opel V with the new Griffin at some stage,,,
