    Smile My 1st Vectra!

    Evening guys,

    Thought I'd introduce myself after signing up a couple of days ago, loving the Site so far! Some extremely useful tips on here, and some lovely examples of Vectra's!

    I recently bought a Facelift Vectra 2.2 SRI 55 Plate for an absolute steal at £2K (Private Sale), really thought it was too good to be true at the time, HPI came back clear, car was immaculate when I viewed it. Test drive was the same, too good to be true. Anyways, the guy wanted £2200, but accepted £2k after I mentioned the front tyres were reaching their limit. Nice one.

    Couple of weeks later I had the dreaded Fuel Pump / Fuel Regulator problem. So THAT's why it was so cheap! My local Stealers were quoting ridiculous money to have just the Pump changed, about £1K fitted. I didn't even ask how much for the Regulator too. Luckily, a bloke that had seen my face drop at the quote Vauxhall gave me stopped me as I was leaving and mentioned his mate had his car serviced at a Vauxhall Specialist nearby. I didn't have nothing to lose so I thought, why not. They quoted me £480 fitted, for BOTH Fuel Pump and Fuel Regulator. Car has been perfect ever since!

    It's nice to know there are decent garages still out there, and people decent enough to recommend them!

    Anyways enough of the rambling. I'm Jay and I live in West Bromwich. Apart from the mishap when I first bought it, I'm loving the Vectra. I've kinda done the natural progression, 1st car was a Corsa C, then moved on to an Astra a few years later, now I have the Vectra! History would suggest I'll be moving on to a Zafira next or something similar!

    Welcome to the site mate I'd say natural progression would be a signum but I guess I'm biased

    Cheers guys!

    Roverjay, I did look into the Signum actually. At the time I was after a new motor, there wasn't a lot advertised in my area! Are they any bigger than the Vectra's inside?

    I used to have a 54 Plate Astra Design. Loved it. Never once let me down. Then my 2nd little boy arrived and I tried to fit a Double Buggy in the boot, not happening! Literally had to sell it for that reason! But I'm pretty happy with the Vectra, and the boot space!

    Wouldn't say the signum has more room... the boss has one and it feels cramped compared to the veccy
