    a 53 plate dti vectra is probably only worth about £1500-£1700 nowdays, you can actually buy an 04 model vectra cdti for about £1800 and my 06 model design cdti vectra was only £2400, so it might be worth you looking to break your car and sell it as parts (wheels always seem to fetch £100+ alone), then just buy a new car !

    Have to agree with Stuartpru, really not worth spending nearly £2k on a £1500 car. I'd have a trawl round local breakers for a good secondhand engine (and always worth asking them about fitting if you don't already have anybody in mind - they will often know someone who can do it) and see if you can get fixed up for a few hundred quid rather than £2k. Failing that, break it and buy another!
