    Default What should i do ?

    If you were me, which of the following would you do ....

    1/ Would you keep saving for an Insignia VXR and when the time comes, P/X my 2.0T Vectra as part of the deal ?

    or

    2/ Keep the Vectra as an ongoing project and buy a nice spec Insignia Diesel Tourer as an every day family car.


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    Mmmm this sounds like the conversation we had ootside ma hoose last week Andrew, I recall saying "you should have went for the VXR, and knew somebody selling one @ stage3 for £18k" yours is a belter mate. I'd fancy getting it too but having fun the now modding mine up atm.

    Number 2 mate, then mod the vectra to your liking THEN get the Insignia VXR when the prices are more reasonable.

    Just get the VXR Insignia mate - its what you really want and you already know they're a world apart from the Vectras. If you get the diesel you'll just be disappointed knowing how much better the Vxr is. Spending any more money on the Vectra would just be a waste IMO...

    Having driven a few VXR's i can honestly say i'm smitten.
    I'm not worried about running one, if i kept the Vectra and bought a diesel Insignia, running them both would work out more expensive than just the VXR.
    Another plus for the VXR is having a 4x4 layout. I know this is also available with the Insignia 2.0T etc but the VXR has more WOW factor and i'm thinking about bad weather now i work further away from home and to be honest, the Vectra is cronic in the snow & ice !

    The plus for buying a diesel Insignia is lower insurance, road tax, fuel economy, less likely to get the attention of scum and i can still take the Vectra to shows and go mental on modding the power output.

    Number Two for me too Phil. you can use the tourer for fishing, and the Vectra for a sunday and show car.

    I guess it comes down to how you'd feel about the VXR being used as an everyday family car. If that would bother you, keep the Vec till VXR prices come down, and let the diesel take the mileage. If not, go for it.
    Know how you feel, since I saw and sat in, the new Astra GTC with all the toys I'd want and half leather as standard, I've been smitten. I do have the option of waiting two years, keeping the Vec and having the GTC as a motobility contract hire car though.
