    Default As I'm new, here's my car

    Some of you will have seen my newbie post, some of you won't, but here's my car.

    My first Vaux after several Fords (and an 850 T-5!). This will take over daily driving duties for a bit from the MK6 Escort I was using. Also got a MK5 Escort that's getting a turbocharged Zetec engine.

    It's a 2004 1.9 CDTI SXI, in blue (maybe someone can tell me what blue it is). Was pretty cheap, think it's a ex-fleet/company car, so isn't ever so low mileage, but hopefully it's ok. I'd do well to lose much at the price I paid anyway!

    I don't have any plans especially, I may add the SRI rear lights, and a wheel change would be nice, but that might be a bit much to spend on a daily runner.

    Just the one pic for now, but will get more in time no doubt!



    Already got some technical questions, nothing too serious I hope, or it could be a short lived love affair

    Rides nice enough though, and very quiet at cruising speeds, so fingers crossed it's ok and has potential to be a nice car anyway.

    Comments welcome, as I don't know much about it really, I've never owned one before, and the only experiences I've really got are of a friend's 2002 2.2 DTI SRI from a couple of years back.

    What do you have on yours mate?

    Got any pictures anywhere? Wheels is the only thing I'd like to change apart from adding SRI rear lights, as the orange bit isn't very cool!

    Other than that I'd just tidy the body up and make sure it's all working properly!

    Yeah think it has to be honest. Doesn't ride too bad considering though.
