    Default Ford Focus To VX Vectra

    So, Its happening. Not sure when but it will. Moving from my MK1 (Facelift) Focus Zetec 1.6. Will be going to a 1.8 more likely 1.9 150SRi Vec. What differences will I notice? Is parking a Vec particularly hard cause of its size or can a trip to an asda car park at midnight for 15 minutes teach you everything you need to know?

    Cheers

    handling is great, won't compete with that. Just starting to get old... Big 100,000K Service on the horizon and drinking fuel like there's no tomorrow! Plus I really like the look of the SRi!

    Love its whole sensible yet fun thing going on...
