    Default Bought Another Vectra

    Well in a moment of madness i sold my vectra sri 150cdti about 3-weeks ago,insurance shot up,fuel still going up and thought i would be better off,well was i..no...er indoors wanted a focus petrol so like you do i went and bought an 08(new shape)1.6 petrol,
    Pile of poo,no go in it..fuel consumption crap 31around town,went on a run to manchexter and got 37mpg...jesus i'm used to low fifty's in the vectra...so yesterday i though sod it..your gonna lose money but hey get the car you want while you can...
    So i opted for an 07 150 cdti design..dont know what there like spec wise but it only has 28k on it so time will tell,
    Only other possible grey area could be i bought it at auction BCA up in newcastle,so god knows but got it at a good price and from the reports they do a chip on the bonnet and bumper and a scuff on the 2 front alloys which is nothing rearly so fingers crossed its a gud en,
    Picking it up tommorow.

    Sounds like what i do....i do though have to say,

    Got the car today it's mint,alot better than i expected,even got the climate control thingy on it where you turn it to the number setting,impressed with what it's got on it spec wise and drives a treat,might have bagged myself a good-un here..but don't want to put the mockers on it,

    I shall over the weekend post a pic of it,looks lovely ion the sun in red,

    Misses knows i'm happy with it because i haven't shut up going on about what toys it has,and god knows how you work the stereo dab thing but all's good and works so can't moan.
