    Trim : Elite XP2

    Engine : 2.8

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 54000

    Default Vectra VXR, is it anyones on here?

    Looking at buying a Vectra VXR and unfortunately the nice Arden Blue one has already been sold, but found this one from a private seller, looks pretty good, but just wanted to see if anyone here knows of it's history? HPI check has said it's had a plate change, but according to the seller that was just the previous owner removing the private plates. Any info would be greatly appreciated, I don't want to buy a lemon! Thanks

    I'm assuming it's a 280, as first registered in feb 2007? Do you think that the "3 tyres recently replaced" is a bit weird? why wouldn't you get all four done?

    Also, and apologies if this is a bit rude, but what do you reckon of this one: http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classifi...1223475063786/

    Thanks!

    Re: tyres - maybe owner had to buy 1x new one recently (because of puncture perhaps) and now the remaining three need changing he's not willing to bin a fairly new tyre for the sake of it?Silver one's better looking than the red one, by the way. IMO.

    Ah ok. Also, this may be a dumb question, but I can't seem to find the answer anywhere. Do all Vectra VXRs have a sport button? I know they all have IDS (and later ones IDS2), but what about the sport button and is it actually worth having it? Thanks

    also the tax is up on the sliver one , so factor in the 460 pounds a year for it ,

    Thanks re. tyres. Also I think the silver one looks better!

    Im not sure if I'm allowed to ask this, but if I offered him a few hundred less than he's asking, would that be taking the ****?

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained, as they say. Taking the p*ss would be offering a grand less.
