    Default Unlucky new owner ......

    So purchased my first Vauxhall .... Have driven ALOT of battered diesel Astra's at work previously which put me off, but have plunged for a 54 plate Vectra 2.2 SRI and so far quite like it.

    However I am possibly the unluckiest person in the world when it comes to cars so within the first two days of ownership .........
    - Picked up 2 nails in different tyres causing slow punctures,
    - The common servo clicking noise behind the glovebox has started which wasnt there on test drive or collection,
    - Keep getting flat batteries if leave the boot or doors open for longer than a couple of minutes,
    - Ordered new mats as the current ones are thread bare but they were a few mm out so wouldnt clip in place (have been sent back!)
    - Started detailing the car spent 5 hours cleaning and claying - at first looked ok but on close inspection found loads of blue paint, concreate, tons of tar, tree sap. Managed to clear all this and started machine polishing to remove the scratches and swirls etc when the temp dropped to about minus 3 and prob wont get it finished any time soon!!

    So bit of a work in progress at the mo!!!!!
