    Default Good morning campers...

    Just thought I'd introduce myself briefly!

    This is something I never thought I'd say, being a staunch blue oval lover, but I've just bought my first Vauxhall!

    I've got an Escort project that I'm building, and I had been running about in a 2.0 Zetec powered MK6 Escort every day, but decided I needed something more economical to use for the daily business.

    I'd been looking at Mondeo's, but stumbled across my new car by accident, and it seemed too cheap to pass up.

    So I'm now the proud owner of a 2004 Vectra SXI 1.9 CDTI! It's dark blue (excuse me for not knowing it's official title), has the SRI bumpers and things (was this standard by this age?), six speed box etc.

    Seems nice enough, very quiet and refined, so should do the job. Body needs a little tidying, and the mileage is on the high side, but it was super super cheap compared to most I've seen. It was so cheap that I was thinking of giving it a tidy up and selling it on, but having looked at some modified ones, I'm half tempted to fit some better wheels and things and keep it! We'll see though, will do for a while anyway! I'll get some pictures up at some point, only have the one at the moment.

    Outside the car, I'm a student, residing in Stafford, though I originally hail from Norfolk, studying Automotive Engineering, not long finished a Motorsport Technology course though, so cars are in my blood a bit

    Thanks

    Jon

    I was using a 2.0 Zetec MK6 as a daily, but that's now the Vectra's job. My project is a 1995 MK5 saloon (so an Orion basically), that's getting a 2.0 Zetec turbo and lots of other funky bits.

    My better half has a MK6 cabriolet in Imperial Blue and a black Puma 1.7, so we've got plenty between us!
