    Default The vectra is going

    Well, the govt have beaten me. Got to get a smaller car with better economy. So getting a corsa. The vauxhall deals at the minute are unbelievable. Only 1.2 but has got full VXR bodykit, tinted windows, 17" VXR alloys, black roof, and loads more extras thrown in. All I've got to do now is decide on red or white ? I want white but family want red. Any thoughts and can I still be a member ?

    Thats a shame mate but needs must and all that. I've seen quite a few of these little corsa's about and they do look smart. I'd def go for a white one. And of cousr you'll still be welcome on here.

    ive tried downgrading to a smaller engine i only went from a 323 (2.5 6cyl) bmw to a 2.0 renault scenic i lasted 2 mth and couldnt handle it i only went down 500cc and the difference was bad i sold it and bought my gsi didnt care about fuel cost , your going down a full litre its going to feel like your sat still when you put your foot down
    also hired a astra 1.4 sxi out when i sold by bmw had it for a week whilst i was waiting for the sceinc and great round town but was pants when i went to overtake on the motorway felt like i needed a mile run up to overtake
    thats my view but ive had big engine cars for a good few years

    Not 100% yet, going for a test drive at 3. Just been having fueling issues lately and car getting too old. Plus worked out the costs and with vauxhall's 0% finance, loyalty bonus, colleagues discount (9%), and vauxhall bonus, 100000m warranty. Will only cost about £40 a month to run and get a 61 plate car.

    in these times beggars cant be choosers, i've got the 1.8 vec its a slug but does 40mpg, and as a second car i've just bought a 1.6 focus.

    what with the cost of fuel and ins, anything bigger was out of the question, i can buy an impreza, just cant afford to run or insure it
