    Hey all,

    I have found this Vectra close to me which seems to be a good price...

    What do you think of it... Does it look like a good deal?

    What should i be looking out for on it when (and if) i go to view it..?

    Thanks
    Coldo

    below average mileage and from the single photos looks ok - have you viewed it and tried it ??
    i would recommend taking a mate with you and havig a good nose around - check the usual things like tyres brakes and springs .... this will give you a good bargaining tool if you DO decide to buy....the other advantage of taking a mate is that sometimes we men do tend to impulse purchase so they can be the voice of reason

    and then if it all goes pete tong ...you can blame your mate

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven

    Hi, havent seen the car yet... was planning on going to see it this weekend...

    Was planning on taking the wife with me as she is a car nut also so will know if its a dog or not... but she also have a good head for money so will make sure i do not see it and go... "YES PLEASE... heres my credit card!"

    What is the insurance group and tax like on this car...?

    I know to check breaks, tyres, exhaust, vibration on the clutch, high gear pull away for clutch slipping, pannels for creasing, boot inside for damage, lots of wear not adding up to the millage... Springs wise... Is this just to check for travel and bounce making sure the shocks are not woren or do you mean something else...

    What else do you think i should check for?

    The Chain really needs looking at at that mileage so take that into account with the haggling (£500 ish). VX recommend around 100k but 70k max really should be the limit.

    You sure it's not your car

    Cool... I was planning on offering him my car (a w reg tigra with 42K on the clock) and another grand cash as long as the car is ok...

    Have you have any issues with your car at all since buying it? What is it like for power and fuel consumption...? Any advice on what to look out for?
