    Default Not a Vectra, but my new car!!

    Firstly i'd like to thank all the Vectra-C Forum members that have given some very useful advice whilst I was looking into buying a vectra, however ive bought a car that isnt a Vectra!!

    Saw this car a week or two ago on another forum and instantly liked it!!

    But I had my sensible head on saying "Vectra, Vectra, Vectra" So I wished the seller good luck with the sale and kept looking for that perfect Vectra!

    Then on Tuesday night I emailed the lad asking if it was still available and he said it was, rang him to discuss and provisionally agreed a price which was hard to say no!! Getting it for £400 cheaper than originally advertised for, so arranged to go view it as it was only 15 mile away!!

    Went and viewed the car, test drove it and couldnt believe the condition of the car for the price!! The car had been HPI'd showing no concerns and the fact it was on its first owner from new (having receipt as proof of purchase 10 years ago) I couldnt say no!!

    Havent had a chance to take any pics of it yet, so at the weekend I will get some of my own pics up! For the meantime......heres the sellers pics and a quick rundown of the car......

    2001 EM2 Civic Coupe 1.7 VTEC (130bhp) in 'Titanium'
    The car has the following high spec:
    -67,500 miles
    -Full Honda Service History
    -New MOT (expires 22/3/2012)
    -6 months tax (expires 31/8/2011)
    -1 owner from new
    -Climate control
    -16inch Honda alloy wheels
    -Genuine Honda factory fitted bodykit: consisting of side skirts, front and rear bumpers & spoiler
    -Electric windows, mirrors & sunroof
    -6 airbags: Drivers, passenger & side of seats
    -2 brand new rear tyres & front tyres were replaced only 3 months ago (Toyo T1-R's all round)
    -Brand new front pads & rear brakes stripped and cleaned
    -Cambelt replaced at 55,000 miles



















    Not to everyones taste I know and the colour is a bit marmite.

    Again thanks to everyone who gave advice on vectras! I will be back lol

    Hope you like!

    Adam

    Thanks for the comment guys, Indeed it is Robert, nothing major going to be done to it, just a few subtle modifications.

    shb1988, wasnt this shape that was used in the original F&F its was the 3 black EG Civic Coupes (92-95). Could be wrong though.
