    Default Now looking for another car! Hassle or what!!

    Following my car being shunted from behind and consequently being written off, I am now on the prowl for another car. Only had that car for 3 weeks, really annoyed me.

    But worse still, I have to go over the whole thing again and find another decent car.

    I think im going to stick with the Vectra, its a good size car, I fell an Astra would be too small for me.

    I really dont know what to get though, the options I have given myself really are:

    - a Good reasonable miler Vectra-B Diesel (X-reg and above);
    - a sub 100k Vectra-C but not an LS and not a CDTI 150, also for insurance purposes im trying to avoid the SRI, ideally I would love a Design, 54-reg above SXI, or an Elegance.

    I think I will only go for a 2.0/2.2 DTI or a 1.9 CDTI, due to the issues with the 150 engine.

    Its just such a paint though looking for one and then going to view outside of working hours.

    Oh, forgot to add that I have seen a 2005/05 Vec Design 2.0 DTI, I think this must be one of the last DTI's.

    How do you guys rate the 2.0 DTI engine in the Vec-C? Is it badly under powered? Any common issues with these?

    Oh, and I probably have an absolute max of about £1600-£1800 to spend, subject to what I get paid out on the Vec-B.

    Ideally I want something with sub 100k, or just slightly over, I had seen that grey ELegance you emailed and was going to discuss over the weekend, the others are no good to me and that Vec-B SRI is awesome, but I did an MOT check on that and at the last MOT it had a shed load of advisories, so next MOT is going to cost a packet!!!

    I seen that too, didnt know what to make of that. Didnt like the wheels and the grille at all, and I know they are removable items but didnt entertain it. I will call him tomorrow now actually, thanks for the nudge.
