    Default Hello, Long Live the Griffin

    Hi everyone, been a Guest for a good while as I was looking to buy a Vec, I must say thanks to everyone as the advice that I gained on here was invaluable. I am now the owner of a 3.0 Sri CDTI with full leather interior, (love those heated seats !...............................at the moment), ask me again in summer

    I have always been a vauxhall man although I have tried most makes of vehicle. Started driving 1990.

    Car History:-

    85 Vw Golf 1.4
    88 Vx Astra 1.6
    90 Vx Cavalier 2.0 GL
    91 Renault 19 16v
    92 Vx Astra 1.8 16v Sport
    94 Fiat Punto 1.1 Sx.................dont ask
    97 Fiesta 1.25 Zetec...............still got it, mrs drives it(great little car)
    2001 Focus 1.8 Tdi Zetec
    2002 Mazda 6 2.0D Sport
    2004 Vx Vectra 3.0 CDTI


    Went back to Vx as I got bored of the Mazda, dont get me wrong, the Mazda was a GREAT car, had everything, plus nothing went wrong in 3 1/2 years and the dealers were FANTASTIC. However it needed more 'poke' and you 150 CDTI boys were annoying.....

    Had my Vec for 2 weeks now, and must say, I bought it as a 'newer' car but cheaper if you know what I mean as I was buying house. The fact that I got £6700 trade in on my Mazda (52 reg, dealer said he couldn't get enough 2 Ltr diesel Sports) (he had it on forecourt for £7995 !!) against the Vec made my mind up. Let me tell you, the Vec feels more solid, the 3.0 is fantastic, and only getting 4 mpg less !!

    Just considering some sort of 'boost' now, again Hi to everyone, and look forward to all your advice.
