Well, I think it's been almost 3 years since I've owned a Vectra now
I sold mine to fund a Corsa VXR that I only ended up owning for circa 8 months due to boredom!
I then P/X'd the Corsa for a mkiv supra twin turbo that I spent £1000's on modding and took to BPU (Circa 400bhp!)
Then, I got the news I was to be a father and it was apparent that the Supra had to go.
I then got a Toyota Corolla T-sport compressor that I currently have!
Problem is, my new daughter is now 3 weeks old and it has dawned on me just how difficult it is owning a 3 door car with an average sized boot!
Getting in and out with the travel seat is trying, being 6' 3", especially in the rain
Also, once the pram is in the boot it's game over for remaining space!
Hindsight would be a wonderful thing, if I'd only listened to every feeling I had when trying to sell my Vec I wouldn't be in this position!
I had a 3.2V6 Elite saloon, spent a few quid on it, Bilstein B12's, H&R springs, 19" Snowflakes, Irmscher bits both in and outside the car, K&N filter, Stainless cat back exhausts etc etc.
So it seems I've come full circle and now find myself looking for a another Vectra, this time in GSi guise!
Looked all over the place as ideally don't want to have to wait around to sell my car, I ideally want to do a straight swap or cash my way, sent a few emails out but had no joy so far!
I was looking at this one in Bradford, had full leather and heated front seats but the guy won't entertain anything other than a straight swap (cheapest I've found a TTE compressor is £6,795!)
So I did a little more searching and found this one in Scotland.....
Looks a tidy enough example, though wearing SRi wheels for some reason, it has the added bonus of an Irmscher grille
I'd probably pay a trimmer to do the seat centres in black leather too, maybe even have some heated elements fitted at the same time ready to wire up at a later date
Has anyone ever retrofitted heated front seats? Is it fairly straight forward to do?
So far the guy has offered me £2000 cash/cheque + The Vectra for my Corolla, he said he wouldn't begrudge paying a little more depending on the condition of my Corolla.
What does everyone think?
