    Vehicle : Vectra Estate

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : CDTI 150 (Z19 DTH)

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 100k

    Default Dilemma - new car

    So - looking at Vectra C estates... Ive found two reasonable cars I think:

    A 2005 8v CDTI @ 2k:
    http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classifi...01212458945796

    A 2004 (half can) DTI 2.2 @ 2.2k:
    http://www.adtrader.co.uk/greater-lo...a?keywords=car

    So thats actually quite a difficult decision.. The better spec half can 2.2 diesel - or the lower spec but cdti engine full can.. hmm

    Thoughts?

    The 2.2 dti it has a far better spec, heated leather seats etc. A little more power @ 125 against the 120. Saying that my 2.2 DTI is running with 140 bhp just with a pipercross filter & de-cat. I got my car on 90K im now a t 135k and have had no problems what so ever . "Touch wood" . I have a Signum Design which is the next level down to the elite and the spec is huge.

    I would go with the 2.2DTI mate

    Love the way you just insulted all the elite owners on the forum. Nice

    Personally I'd look at both as they could be rubbish in real life and make up my mind then. Nothing wrong with either engine so it comes down to spec, condition and budget.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
