    Default Bye, bye VECTRA :( HELLO INSIGNIA :)

    I've finally taken the plunge and have just bought a 7 month old Insignia SRi CDTi(160) NAV 4door with factory fit VXR kit and 19" alloys. Car is Olympic White and looks oh-so-nice. I have been looking for a white one since the end of August. I will get pics posted up once I collect my new car (have to wait a few days for the reg transfer).
    Can't wait.

    Why this sudden rash of white cars? I though white was so naff that even the police and changed to silver so they could get more for the cars when they sell them? White is very 1980s.

    White is mega in fashion mate, its the new black! And its not just in the car industry, look at fashion, electrical good, personal equipment etc... its really en-vouge!

    I love it, but sadly not on a Vectra C, as you say looks like a police car, or ex-police car. But on anything else, insignias, Astra VXR, BMs alsorts i think it looks mint!

    Catch up dear boy

    Almost all car tv adverts now use white cars, and as much as they were all the rage in the 80's they had the edges tinged with rust

    I had white cars in the late 80's... corolla GTi's etc. they looked great all polished up and shiny.

    Fashion comes around again.... white is the new silver/black.

    Waiting for his white one

    I had 3 white cars in a row during the 1980s and early 90s, (1988 Lada Riva, 1990 Lada Samara (great car as long as you did not drive through a puddle) and a 1994 Proton Aeroback).
