    Vehicle : Vectra cdti estate

    Trim : Get a

    Engine : Dirty diesel

    Year : 2006

    Default the hire car....

    The vectra was hit in the rear a little over a week ago, and the insurance company got in touch with avis who brought us out a bmw, now this bmw is a 320d M-Sport in black, i have to say i am very impressed with it so far, the torque from it is unbelievable and it just pulls and pulls in every gear, it's extreemley nippy and feels well planted on the road, a little smaller than the vec and if like me you are on the BIG side then the seats are a bit of a pain to get into and quite uncomfortable to start of with as they it has v-tight bolsters (with them being sports seat's) and they are also very low to the floor making getting in and out of them a bit akward to say the least...lol


    anyway we have had news that the vectra is awaiting autho for repairs, needs bumper-crash bar-number plate holder and a small repair to the diffuser (due to it coming away from the bumper) and should be ready in about 4-5 days...

    being as we have a funeral tomorrow morning i thought i would give the car a bit of a clean today so bosnian wash and home for a quick black hole glaze and windows clean, quite impressed with how it's come up as we all know how hire car's are treated and washed !!!

    pic's









    so there we go, cant wait to get the vec back though...

    Bet that goes pretty well too. Luckily I've never needed a courtesy car, but if I did I bet I'd end up with a 1.0 Corsa.....

    Interesting that these are being loaded through to the daily rental fleets from BMW, I see them coming up at approx 10>20K miles with prices from £16>21K
    They make a fairly good used buy compared with new but balanced against an equivalent age/ miles Insignia for £13>15K still pricey

    sorry for the late reply ken, in answer to your questions..

    1, a bosnian wash is what we refere to here as a car wash place that appears on any bit of un-used land ran by eastearn european's (90% of them being illeagel)...

    and 2, no decided not to bother in the end and went for 314 brakes and a few other bit's..
