    Smile Newbie 3.2 from Lincolnshire

    Morning all,

    Just thought I would introduce my self and our car. We have a 3.2 Elite auto with 39,000 miles, 03 plate in flame red. This is actually the wife's car but I steal it when I can! I have always wanted a 3.2 and the petrol prices did me a favour really because I managed to get a really great example for really low money. It's cheap to tax and economy is not an issue as the commute to work is about 20 miles each way, in top gear on rural roads and 36 mpg seems about the average. Plus when the possibility to overtake presents itself, the V6 makes it an effortless and safe manoeuvre. I get in my 2.2 diesel Vel Satis and it feels really agricultural now and given half a chance I will swap that for another 3.2! My father runs a Vectra also, a 2.8t Elite, 08 plate and that is a real animal. He is 77 by the way and my mother has no clue, she just thinks it is a practical family car! Oh well, that’s about it really, any advice would be appreciated.

    Regards


    Dave P

    Welcome to vec c.
    My wife works nights so when she goes to work there is no traffic, and when she comes home she's going the opposite way to all the traffic! School run chops it well down mind but i'd rather not talk about that lol!
