    Vehicle : Facelift Insignia/Corsa D

    Trim : LE/VXR

    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    Year : 13/07

    Default Don't you just love stepping back into your own car?

    For the past week and a half the Vec has travelled a grand total of about 6 metres due to the snow (and the fact I couldn't get it out of the drive )

    I've been using the punto to my work in that time and while it's great in the snow, it's absolutly gutless. So I set to it today and dug the Vec out to take it into dundee. I've grown to love it all over again

    So smooth, so much power and so much space

    Yes indeed.

    I drive around in the Fiat 500 (scrappy - as its known) 69 BHP during the week.

    Then I get the Vectra out at weekends and its bliss...

    But strangely, I then like getting back into the Fiat 500 again as well... Its sort of... more calm....

    I know most of you would never want to drive a Fiat 500, but I HIGHLY recommend them (especially on coilovers with DS-2500 race pads)

    Snap, I took the Mrs Punto to work all last week, although it's a 1.9 JTD its still nice to get back into the Vec.

    I drove the work van today (Loaded up with cartons of beer) for a few hours. 0-100KM'h TIMED. 33 seconds. No power steering. No air conditioning. Sat in the Vectra once done and almost hugged my steering wheel. Even my dodgy clutch couldn't stop me from accelerating like a dick head
