    Default VXR Vectra Help PLease & Advise

    Hi lads after xmax my car will be paid for im toying with the idea of a vxr vectra now heres the but

    Iv seen some ex police cars on ebay an some state they have the same vxr engine, power, gearbox as the proper vxr vec can someone tell me if this is right ?

    Also are these ex police cars really worth the money ? or should i hold out for the full pedigree ?

    Just 1 more thing i no the tax is more on the later vxrs but is that the same with the ex police cars with the 2.8 turbo v6 engine.
    Heres a few iv found on the bay the first one i like as its got low miles an its white i dont really want something thats got a million miles

    Thanks Lads for the help

    personally I would wait ,they are getting cheaper and cheaper because of running costs .EX police will have the cloth SRI interior and maybe the odd hole on the dash here and there .
    Servicing will always be good, but I would wait .

    the police cars are a vxr without the toys and bells and whistles of a proper vxr personally i would refrain from these. as soulman has said the proper vxr is getting cheaper by the day but prices seem to have levelled off in my opinion. the cheaper tax cars are pretty rare as well
    i have a vxr and i love it

    Maybe the Police speck one could be higher ...depends on engine and suspension mods.

    You can get the same engine as the vxr in vectras and signums without it being an ex police car or an actual vxr.
