    the vectra vxr is a great car but is heavy on fuel on short runs or around town, and some of the parts are exspensive you could do with buying one from a garage to get warrenty because some of them are getting timing chain issues which are silly money to fix.make sure you get one with full history and as much spec as you can.

    Lovely looking car, but again, if running costs are at all a concern it's probably not the car for you, it's not just going to be thirsty on fuel, the tax is £400+ a year and the cost of parts have to be considered.
