    Default Ex-Taxi Face-Lift Vectra C Sri

    Hi guys im new to this site. I used to own a vectra b dti but recently sold that and bought myelf this vectra c. I bought it off my dad who has used it asa blackpool taxi but mainly to do the airport runs (blackpool to manchester/liverpool).

    It has clocked up the mileage and is now on approx 228k but i know it has had a good life and drives like new. Engine gets steam cleaned yearly and the car has had a full service religously every 6 weeks.

    I have removed the taxi stickers but the glue still remains. Will be t-cuting this off today. It is also going in to have the meter, cb radio and computer removed and transfered over to the old mans new car today.

















    Not a bad car for £300 eh?

    Give wd40 a go on the glue, works for me, although i only usually leave my stickers on for a week when my taxi goes for test, then put my magnetics back on(shhh).
    Nice car by the way, cdti 120 like mine, hope mine does another 100k.

    Welcome along. Not bud for £300. Get some Auto Glym Tar Remover to remove the glue.
