    Trim : GTS

    Engine : 6.2 V8 Supercharged

    Year : 2017

    Default I Said Goodbye To My Vectra Yesterday.

    We said good-bye to my Vectra VXR estate today, SG09 EJF.

    This Vectra has covered 41,500 miles and has a full Vauxhall service history, The last service was in February this year and has 2 years additional warrenty which was purchased from a Vauxhall dealer a week before it's first mot, So there still a year to run on this. I believe this should carry over to the new owner but as the car was on a private plate it may not be recognised.

    It has been part exchanged to the Perry's group.

    The car had a new turbo fitted under warranty at 34,000miles and new GM front discs and pads fitted during the last service.

    The BSR remap that was fitted has been removed.

    It's been a really great car with no big issues to report and it will be missed but I'm confident it's replacement will very quickly put an end to that.

    I hope whoever buys this Vectra enjoys it as much as we have...

    Blimey Mark, that was a sudden change of heart, only a week or two ago you said you'd set your heart on keeping the Vec.

    You go through new motors like I go through shoes.

    Nice new motor though mate, look forward to seeing it/testing it

    Not at all jealous honest...
