    Default Tiptronic Good or not

    The short time I have been on here some of you know I am after a vectra but preferably a signum

    I have been offered an 05 pre facelift 1.9cdti 150 sri Tip tronic with only 57k on the clock

    My main question is peoples opinions on the tiptronic and whether this is good or not and whether I should take the guys offer up the details of the car as per swapz listing are below on the link

    Thanks in advance

    beware anyone who describes the sti interior as PLUSH- he/she is obviously a liar.
    Also they state the car is 'immobilised' so not sure how you will drive it..... lol

    he/she even talks about themselves in the third person... "credit to it's owner"....

    best to steer clear me thinks :-)

    lol.... I'd go and look at it and then make an informed decision if I were you- ie get it checked over by the AA or a decent tech you know..... and make sure the address on the log book is where you view it and do a hpi......

    if you do all that you can the decide if it is worth swapping for whatever you've got.......

    All you can do it look at it. Tiptronic is auto with the option to have a play around. It's a weirdly worded ad but maybe the guy is just a bit weird

    Agreed tiptronic is an auto with the ability to use as a "manual"

    I'm really pleased with mine... A very lazy drive

    BUT you need to try this one for yourself .. Better safe than sorry
