    Default Nightmare to reverse!

    Hi everyone, just got my vectra 1.9 cdti sri this weekend. I love it. Cruise control (never had one before!) 6 speed.(had it once before!) Everything is great with it. (apart from one technical issue i have, which ive posted on the other page) One thing i cant get around is the REVERSING! My last car wasnt exactly a mini.( It was a e46 bmw 320d) but the Vectra C is a nightmare! I reverse in it like im still on a driving lesson! haha. The missus had to guide me to reverse park between 2 cars earlier today( and ive been reversing between the same 2 cars for the last 2 years!!!) Im hoping ill get used to the car or ill have to think about DIY reversing sensors! Anyone else struggled when they got their 1st vectra??

    I think we all went through that - look at the amount of stuff on here about parking sensors. I fitted them and later had a rear-end shunt which disabled them but by then I'd got used to reversing it so I guess I'm saying it all seemed a bit daunting to start with but quickly got used to it.
