    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.
