    Default I'm made up with the vectra but tempted by an is200

    I've been driving my mates is200 today and its got me thinking about them again. I nearly bought one which I took in as a part ex when at AC's but left it to late to say I wanted it and then missed out by £50 at the auction. Would you swap your vectra for one? I don't know if after a week i'd be gutted. Has anyone had an is200 and a vectra? or even someone to say no don't bother waste of time lol God I need a bird to tell me no! haha

    I I wouldnt change for a IS200 they very very tirsty and quite dead.
    If you like the IS200 you should go for an Altezza RS200 (Jap IS200), 4 cylinder beams tunned.
    Way better car, Faster, Better spec. I had a 01 Rs200 and I loved it and I was ****ed off I sold it.

    I got an 08 reg IS diesel from work (pool car). 200 mile round trip in it. Beautiful car to drive, seats were brilliant. Would definitely own one. Was a manual but an auto would probably suit it better

    Yes, was a nicer car than the Vec, and so it should've been for the extra cost over a Vec - and it was 3 years younger

    The thirsty thing isn't that much of an issue as dont do many miles and my mates 2.0 auto from £20 gets about 85-95miles depending how he drives. In my vec i stick £20 super unleaded in and juust about get 100miles from it so wouldn't cost that more as I only do town driving as a rule. I reckon one lowered, rear lip spoiler and light tints would look good in silver or black. Anyone wanna buy my vectra hahaha
