    Trim : Aero

    Engine : 2.8 Turbo V6

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 62000

    Default Vectra may be going, sad times...

    Well I have been getting itchy feet for a while and looking at other vauxhalls as well as other marques, I need Boost in my life lol. Been looking at finances and after getting the new house, xmas and a second car for the wife Im not in the position to get what i wanted, an insignia 4x4 or at very least a good vectra vxr in the next year or two...

    So I have been looking at cars around the same value or a little more. looked at v8 s type jags, 2.0 turbo vec c's, astra turbo, the list is endless.

    Today I have spoken to a guy about a mint 2004 Zafira Gsi, 68k on the clocks, fully loaded, many extras. This thing has been well looked after. After some searching and calling around its a well know Gsi on some forums and they have confirmed its one of the best examples about.
    I showed interest in it and he really likes my vectra so we have been talking about a swap deal, he is 100% interested and we are going to speak on the phone tomorrow as its located in grimsby so dont want a wasted journey. If all goes to plan and all is fine I could have it by the end of the weekend. if not no loss and the search continues, I may just put the vectra up for sale and see what interest I get.

    Fingers crossed as I really do like this Gsi, its also in Arden Blue, mint bodywork, alloys just refurbed........ I will update tomorrow after the phone call.........

    This one is from grimby buddy and its not been mapped . It's untouched apart from coilovers, forge pipes/ dump valve and a sportex backbox. If all goes ok I will have a pre cat de cat pipe and upgrade intercooler waiting for it along with a stage 2 map. Hello 250 bhp.

    Haha the Gsi is cheaper to insure even with a stage 3 lol. So a 157bhp vectra is more to insure than a 300bhp bus lol.

    Well it was a sad day today as the Vectra has gone to a new home in Grimsby to an old member on here......Cant remember is username think it was HTV6 or something along them lines. He is a great guy and had a lovely panacotta 2.8T v6 signum that he traded in for the zafira Gsi back in may 2012. He just couldnt get on with the zaf and wanted back in a car rather than mpv. So now I have is Zafira Gsi and he has my Vectra........Both left very happy.
    I will get some pics up tomorrow.

    The parts list has already had a few ticks lol....Its got EDS tophat, Forge boost pipes and dump valve, sportex exhaust but never had any tuning etc.
    Just getting it a front mount intercooler and a pre-cat de-cat with a hoffmans race tube from cat to backbox, cdti air box mod then stage 2 mid march.....Should see some good results.

    Then if im a good boy I may treat myself to the vxr turbo/injectors and maf for my birthday in june and say hello to 350bhp......
