    Default The vauxhall is dead, long live the Vauxhall!

    So, 5 years and less than 60,000 miles after being born and the Vectra is driving rough. Put a post up about it, check out "Vectra running rough"...

    Well, took it to a Vaux specialist and on the way, the AC stopped working.

    So, he had a look. Swirl bar knackered, intake manifold knackered, AC condenser had a stone go through it the size of a ping-pong ball, EGR knackered (again), something else I can't remember, oh, and it's service is 2 weeks overdue. Looking at a bill of knocking on 2k.

    End result, bye bye Vectra. Sold it to a dealer who shall remain nameless, but it is LARGE, not so well thought of and everywhere. Moreover, they sold it to me in the first place so my conscience is clear.

    So, hear is the new beast, Insignia 2.0 Cdti 160 VX-line Red.

    A completely different machine to Vectra. In terms of looks and quality - a different level. For what is still essentially "only" a Vauxhall it's lovely, no dig by the way, I've had 8 of them since I was 19, a while a go!! I have 2 on my drive now....

    The interior is brilliant!!

    Oh, and yes they are 20"s!!!

    I love it. Only driven it 3 times mind as I got it the day before I went back to sea!

    So, Mods..... Any suggestions. First thing will be the running lamps. May see if I can get a hold of some Elite headlamps. After that, not sure.

    Just looking through my old pictures and found this.

    She was a looker. Fast too!!! In a way I'll miss it because I put a lot of time and money into it. Oh well. Happy anyway!
