    Default VXR,tempted....

    Saw a Vectra VXR in AC Hamilton Rd, Glasgow yesterday it was in blue and going for £17,995.....

    So I popped in with the troops for a closer look, and with in seconds there were about 5 sales guys fighting to get to me first...lol

    To cut it short, Paul the lucky salesman asked if I wanted to have a look inside, oh yes I says lol, he came back with the keys and opened the beast up. As I popped the bonnet to see the cars guts Paul started the car up and within seconds he was reving the s*it out of the car and half way through reving it just turned it off....... , so much for the heat up and cool down......

    As I was looking round the car and trying not to spot all the dents, scores and scratches a couple of the other salesmen came up to me and was informed that the car was a cracker....and that they have all had a great time test driving the car and knocking its ****** in.....great way to get a sale....

    At Pauls desk he asked me what I was looking for for my car even though he couldnt find it on his system or in the Glassers guide...... so he booked it in as a 2.0T Eleglance and was £6500 ok...... .

    So rather and let poor Pauls suffering go on any longer I informed him that the car was the wrong colour for me as I was looking for a red one, plus the fact the car had had more damage on it than a big damaged thingy.....lol

    I was also informed that the car had been sold more that 3 times but all the ppl wanted was just a test drive and then say.....naw no thanks

    So I think I'll just be holding off for a while and enjoy my new model 2.0T Eleglace with all the badges........lol

    Later.........................

    Better to have a lesser car in good condition than a knackered VXR, it could be more than just cosmetics you would have to deal with, by the sounds of it.

    Why can't previous owners take care with their cars, it doesn't take much!

    it does make you wonder what salesmen actaully think of us doesnt it? When i bought the veccy, I explained that i was after a diesel for the economy and the vectra for the comfort. I also wanted the 150bhp engine and SRi spec just so the car was competent when i needed that little extra, like overtaking tractors and sunday drivers etc. he then proceeded to tell me how amazingly quick and sporty the vectra was, depsite the Astra Coupe Turbo I came in being parked next to it, which the Mrs was driving home!

    They seem to think that we are all numpties and all blokes want to thrash their cars to death, just cos they thrash all the cars they drive!
