    Default Dad's 'new' Elite Estate

    Just picked it up on Saturday to replace the '02 1.8 Elite 4dr he has as he wanted a deisel estate for the economy, space and to tow occasionally.

    The exterior needs a good wash, polish and wax etc, as its been stood a while, and both the near side wheels are scuffed and need repair....but interior is very clean, mats down from new so carpets are mint and the back seats dont appear to have ever been sat in, or if they have its been very very minimal...just drivers seat is abit creased on the side where you get in....rund extremely well, everything works as it should and it wants for nothing (Well, maybe the front bumper wants re-sitting on the edge)

    2006 '06, 1.9 CDTI [150] Elite manual, Silver Lightening, ex United Utilities car but 1 owner/driver from new, 79k with FSH...

    Will update gallery once its had a wash and scrub up













    *Does anyone know why they didnt paint the sideskirts and rear bumper trim on facelift estates?, as the Hatch and Saloons all have them painted.

    Bet its faster than the 1.8 as well mate. Greenbox it and it will be a weapon!

    Why did they even put a 1.8 in a Vectra?

    Aye it fairly cracks on, pulls very well indeed....it wont get tuned, he's not into all that at all, its fast enough for him anyway

    The 1.8 is alright actually, I had my doubts when i heard he was buying it, but once i'd driven it i was quite impressed OK it wont beat scoobys etc but thats not what its about, it's well geared too so does pull well in 3rd and 4th when its in the torque band

    Wheels are standard Elite wheels for that year, they changed on the later models to split 7 spokes...and yeah the badges are missing, saves me the job of taking them off

    It's just before the chrome door handles were specced, the wheels are correct for its year, the pre-facelift had 7-spokes....all the SRi estates ive seen have had the black sills and rear bumper trim unless the exterior kit was fitted.
