Iím a current Vauxhall Owner (Astra mk4, 1.6) and Iíve had my eye on a couple of astra mk5... SRI 150ís
It wasnít until the other day that I saw a veccy C with an irmscher chrome grill, nice alloys and a small rear spoiler that I thought to myself ďthese cars can look quite nice with a bit of tasteful moddingĒ
So Iíve spent the past couple of days looking at Vectras and now I really fancy one.
I thought it would be a good idea to join this forum as I may soon be a regular member, and Iíd like to get some opinions before I do buy a Vectra.
I think I would still go for a 1.9 (150) model, with the exterior pack, although Iíve not looked to deeply into what each different pack offers, or which is the best one to go for.
Looking at Vectras, I much prefer the looks of the facelift (2004-2008 model), although a few people mention that the cabins are different? (being worse on the facelift) Are there any other major differences? I prefer the physical look of the facelift models, in particular the lights but other than that I canít see any major differences.
Is there anything in particular that I should be looking/checking for when shopping around for these cars?
I want to make sure I get a good deal, and Iím looking to spend about £6,000, hopefully that should get me something nice with low mileage as Iíve noticed a lot of these cars are ex-company cars and have covered very high mileage.
Thanks for reading,
