    Smile Greetings... again!

    Hi all,

    Way back in 2008 I introduced myself to this forum with a plan to buy a nice Vectra and I'm ashamed to say it but I lost my way and ended up with a Renault Laguna...

    But, I am glad to say that although time has passed my interest in the Vectra has never waned and with the imminent arrival of baby number two I have finally found myself a Vectra to call my own.

    It's a 2007 Elite Estate Auto in Turquoise with Tan interior and from what I can tell so far it's got pretty much all the goodies I could ever need. Having only picked it up today I am sure I will discover plenty more about it but suffice to say I am very pleased!

    About the only thing I am keen to do at some point in the (near) future is fitting a bodykit as I think it will really set it off, and if by chance a set of snowflakes finds their way into my possession I might give those a try (although the 18's look pretty good as it is).

    Looking forward to meeting some of the members at some point and I'm sure I'll have questions when I do come to making some changes to the car.

    Cheers,

    Stefan

    To answer the couple of questions:

    It's the 2.8T V6, but I won't be using the car to commute so not overly concerned with the MPG and on long runs I imagine it won't be that much different to the 3.0 V6 in the Renault but we shall see.

    I'm getting rid of the Laguna as I managed to find one that, while being in great condition inside and out, had a few miles on it and ended up suffering a large number of 'known faults' (both front springs broke and pierced the tyres, front electric windows stopped working, sunroof is starting to act up) and I'm finding that the boot just isn't big enough.

    So I finally decided enough was enough and that I should get the Vectra I had been thinking about for 2+ years. Having done the work on the Laguna I should be able to get an okay price for it so the changeover won't be crazy, but am hoping the Vectra doesn't keep costing me money (in a bad way) like the Laguna did.

    Of course with all the modifications that are possible and little tweaks here and there I can't see myself escaping without spending some money on the Vectra, but at least it will be by choice.
