    Vehicle : Vectra cdti estate

    Trim : Get a

    Engine : Dirty diesel

    Year : 2006

    Default my new work car, it's a cracker....

    what with the stupid inflated prices i was getting quoted for renewal on the miggy and another car i was interested in and the iminent sale of the miggy i very nearly gave up hope of getting a work car but, after a few days of brooding over it on ebay i decided to get an ins quote and called the seller to do a deal and arange collection

    ebay pics link only for pics for now i'm afraid as camera batteries flat

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    as per the add, that car has lots and lots of history with it, it turned over to 46k miles as i drove it down the M6, it feels as tight as when it was new, no rattles or squeeks from interior, engine purrs and no smoke or anything on start up or when running, there are a few cosmetic issues with bodywork but no major rot anywhere apart from some on the bottom of drivers door and that should repair (for now anyway) quite easily for a few quid..

    to say i am happy with it is an understatement..

    cambelt kit and waterpump ordered (cant get genuine so pattern part only) service and brake fluid change coming v-soon along with a big clean and inspection / waxoil of underneath to keep her as good as she is....

    btw i paid £650.00 for it after it originaly being up for £795.00 and the biggest bouns was cheap insurance and road tax....
