    Default I'm in!

    Hello everyone.
    New to Vectra-C ownership since August, only now have I have I found this site... how is it every time I buy a car I find the ultimate resource AFTERWARDS!!
    Honda CRX
    Porsche 944 turbo
    and now my best car ever (after a Porsche!) an 03' plate Signum V6 CDti Elite, tuned via MrHoot.com, in met Black(Sapphire?).

    So questions will now follow in other threads, but it appears this car used to be special.. I bought it off Autotrader after spying only 2 black Elite 3l diesels.. this had lowest mileage at 37k AND was a manual.
    I never saw it pre-purchase as I'm in Bournemouth and the car was in Edinburgh... after buying it at £10.5k, and delivery to me I found it had colour sat nav as standard (didn't know!).... then problems...
    Front tyre valves sheared (metal caps fused with valve, and somneone using pliers ot gett hem off...) - £220 later the garage paid up.
    Horrible gruanching noise from back end results in shock absorbers that had no gas in them!! £232 garage pays up. The thing was, during the work needed to put this right I discover that this car was a demonstrator... had EVERYTHING fitted as standard.. including self levelling shocks (sound right?) previous owner must have had issues with them and changed them to standard items... nuts.

    Car was bought to commute to my new job, 33 miles each way, Porsche too pricey to do that, and a waste. Wife hated driving it, so it had to go. What a decision! I'm SO chuffed with this thing!

    Anyway, no doubt I'll chat with some of you after my first round of questions.... there are some beautiful cars here which I'm wanting to emulate.

    Spotted this site via LMF and I assume Mark the Cabby... thank god for that eh.

    Hello and aboard. Lovely car you have there, i wish i'd went for the 3ltr CDTI after seeing its preformance on the weekend.

    Be sure to add your name to the South Central Members List, and not sure if its something that would interest you or not, but we are having a Rolling Road day at Regal Autosport in Southampton. Would be a nice chance to get to meet some other members and test the cars preformance too.
