    Default P/X'd the Vectra today........

    .........well i almost did !
    I was a signature away from chopping the Vectra in for a BMW 520d M sport Touring but ..... i couldn't do it ! I just couldn't do it !

    I walked round the BM countless times, the bodywork was flawless as was the leather clad interior, it ticked all the right boxes, what a car.

    But i just couldn't let the Vectra go, i couldn't release it back into the wild....
    it's become a part of me !
    I had to walk away telling the suited gent i needed to think about it over the weekend.
    But my mind was already made....the Vectra stays !
    Oh - i want a BMW as above like mad, but not at the cost of losing my 'black beauty', no way Pedro !

    In hindsight, i know i've done the right thing. I want the Vectra and the BMW so looks like i'm opening a new bank account on monday and starting the saving.


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    Good choice Phil. You've got a cracking motor there mate. You know it makes sense to keep her!

    A difficult position to be in Phil. Thing is the BMW would not have been one of my choice though.

    You wouldn't have been happy with the 2litre diesel phil, theyre a bit flat in the 5 series especially the touring, if you really want one, the 525 or 530 diesels are the ones to go for, at least they will pull you out of bed in the morning.

    Good call Phil, given how it looks and what you have spent on it

    The 2.0T is a hard act to follow. There are times when I miss my old one.
