    Engine : 2.8 V6 Turbo (280)


    Mileage : 82000

    Default Hello to all VX Owners

    Hi everyone,
    I'm Matt, 26 from Plymouth. I'm picking up my Vectra 1.9CDTi (150) SRi XP2 on Saturday and can't wait... pics will of course follow.

    This isn't my first time on the forums, I've had a few VXs in the past and was a member of Astra Owners Network up until I sold my last Astra about 2 years ago.
    My car history has been fairly checkered, but there's been a few gems in there, so for those that are interested, in order of buying and not neccessary selling/killing:

    Astra F 1.4 - First Car Written of by a Mini Cooper S whilst parked!

    Astra G 1.6 SXi - slightly modded

    Astra H 1.9 CDTi (150) SRi XP - brand new with lots of toys, running at 200bhp 300lb/ft

    Golf Mk3 VR6 - totally standard except coilovers and BMC CDA

    Skoda Octavia VRs 1.8T
    - mapped to much more than 180bhp but never got it on the rollers. Ended up in a river down a 30ft drop backwards.. whoops. (post pics later)

    Citroen Xsara Picasso 1.8 - enough said

    And now this Vectra on a 58 plate.

    It won't be kept standard, I'll be putting on my DTUK CRD2 box running the Abyss Map +10% and whatever else the wallet and wife will allow. Maybe colour code the grille and a couple of little bits like paint the calipers etc to tidy it up.

    Thanks and I look forward to being part of the community.

    Welcome mate, What was the Octavia like? I was looking at them, but I then opted for the Vectra!

    Plus, pics of the Vectra is law!

    Thanks for the welcome guys.
    The Octavia was great, amazing power, very well built, smooth and stylish... I'd still have it now if I didn't take it on an aquatic adventure one Sunday morning when I overcooked a corner driving like a tool.
    It had a couple of little niggles like a squeaky vent fan but apart from minor problems it was reliable and very very fun.

    Pics of a few:
