Been off looking at cars today at arnold clarks. I had decided to get a basic corsa or something with brilliant mpg and had been tempted by a corsa black and white limited edition.
Then i thought sod it. I am behind the wheel for over 2 hours a day usually so another vectra is the way to go. I could afford a new insignia but with buying the house recently i dont want to be paying a lot in fianance.
The branch i was in had a 1.9cdti sri at 10495 and a 1.8 vvt design at 8999 which looked ok but i really want an sri as its easier to add the xp kit to and make my own. Got offered £1400 trade in for my 04 sri so will just sell seperately, prob try and get new car first then swap my 314 brakes, 18"s, HID's over.
Looking at the website there are a few 1.8vvt sri's at 6488 upwards for 08 plates or 08 plate 1.9cdti sri at 8488 in metro blue i like.
Big decision is whether its worth changing now or just keeping mine til it dies. I should gain about 200 miles a tank by changing which would save me a coupld of tanks of fuel a month nearly so would give the economy i want but then am i really saving by the time i add finance payments?
Swaying to just keeping doing mine up then in a year or so picking up a last of the line vectra and transferring the bits then. That way i can save the cash and we will have had a couple of years in the house to settle into the higher mortgage etc.
Looking at the consumption figures if i do change it comes down to whether the extra price will be worth it as theres not too much difference in consumption.
Gawd i hate making decisions where cars are concerned
