    Default Anyone want to see a car for me? Bolton area

    I am thinking of a vectra estate and would really appreciate someone to have a quick look at the overall condition of it as its ****** miles from me! ITS THIS ONE

    I just want to know if there are any scrapes/dents on it, what make and how much tread is left on the tyres and if your keen enough is the swirl bar still on? Basically the more detail the better (service history receipts?) but anything is better than nothing.

    I have spoken with Dez as it used to be for sale near him and he said it had a few bumper scrapes and a few dents on the doors.

    You would be a legend if anyone can do this for me
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Right, its had EVERYTHING possible done on it from vx. New clutch, inlet manifold, swirl valves, alternator etc seriousy anything that could go wrong on it has been replaced by Pentagon vauxhall in Rochdale.. Just had cambelt done a month ago.Front tyres are pilot sport 3,s with less than 3k covered. rears have around 4mm left of tread and are pilot sport 2's. Brakes are 314's up front with black diamond pads and genuine vx pads(almost new). Rear discs are also black diamond, discs have covered less than 3 k. Rear brake pads will need replacing soonish though. HID kit fitted, sat on eibach springs, rear shocks were replaced around 3-4 months ago. Small scrape on drivers side rear door and a dent on the wheel arch. Quoted £50 to have these removed. Front skirt could do with a respray if you want it perfect. Its been run on v power for the last 3 years with millers added every other tank. Fuel economy should be showing 46mpg which is mainly motorway driving. Just one thing of note its had 5 egr valves in the last 3 years, dunno why but it has problems with them. The one thats on now has been on for around 2 months and was/ is running fine.

    Machine polished it recently and waxed with Dodo Supernatural, even the wipers are new lol.
    Guess you werent counting on that level of info!
    Oh alloys were refurbed in march, 2 are showing signs of wear already though and would need a touch up to be perfect.

    Hope this is of some use to you mate.If you need anymore details or i've missed something let me know and i'll fill you in.

    Just remembered, front offside wing has 2-3 scratchs on it, sum 7osser hit it and drove off denting the original wing badly so that was bought off ebay as a replacement, the air con has just been serviced and recharged at vx too and is ICE cold. You won't find a more comprehensive history on a car, there are receipts for every single piece of work thats been done on it all at the main dealers.

    I knew it was someone from here! Wilco, thought you had a 3.0 estate? Did you have a lap top nicked out of the boot at a hotel or something? maybe I am thinking of someone else? I'll think of a few questions later and get back to you as I'm off to work in a min

    Just wish you hadn't posted all that up I bet someone else gets there first now!

    I looked at an insignia yesterday, Sri though but will leather and sat nav. Loved the interior!
