    Default Finally Done It!

    Afternoon All,

    Well, after many months of deliberations and much mind changing (almost daily!), I've finally taken the plunge and purchased a Vectra! There's now an '08 2.0t SRi in Panacotta parked where there used to be a 1.8t Golf Gti (which was a love/hate car for the 3 1/2 years that I owned it), and it's a nice feeling to have an almost new car with no rattles or squeeks!

    I've been mostly lurking on the forum for a good few months (researching as you do before taking the plunge!), and it seems to be a pretty friendly community with little discernible "edge" between members which is really refreshing. The claying of the paintwork has already started, and just need a few weekends with the polishing rags to make it "mine" - here's hoping the decent weather lasts for a good while longer!

    Cheers for now.

    hi and welcome to the Forum - i'm suprised your Golf rattled and squeaked after the early 80's and all the trouble VW got themselves into with an advert

    but i'm sure you will love your 2.0Turbo ...a nice choice in engine and it can be tweaked to perform even better

    so have you many photos of her as standard ....because hanging round here is detremntal to your bank balance and the car will change appearance quite rapidly

    regards

    Dez

    Give me a chance, I've only had it since Tuesday night!!

    In all seriousness, the wheels (standard 17's for now...) are coming off tomorrow to be cleaned inside and out, and mudflaps fitted. With a bit of luck on the weather front, I'll be able to take some pics over the course of the weekend and post them up - it's nothing out of the ordinary though, apart from the rear reversing sensors that have been fitted in the wrong positions (that may have to change!). Initial ideas are relatively modest - finding a colour nav screen to replace the monochrome type currently fitted, Snowflakes and possibly a remap, although I'm drawing the line at hand washing the complete underside every weekend like I did with the Golf - nearly killed me!
