    Default Newbie here from the Isle of Wight advice needed asap thanks

    Hi guys my name is Thomas and im from the Isle of Wight.
    Im going to be looking at a 2005 05 plate vectra dti 2.0 LS tomorrow over on the mainland.

    Im not clued up on Vauxhalls im afraid as im a Rover and MG man myself.

    I had an auto mk4 astra a while back for a few weeks but i fancied something turbod.

    The car in question is for my dad as he needs an economical car for work as he is self employed and his current car is only doing 28mpg on a run. He also needs a hatchback for the tool boxes he carries around.
    As above i have found the car above for a good price and im going over tomorrow to look over it. Could anybody let me know the pitfalls of these cars.

    If it works out ok and i buy it i might even get a diesel to run alongside my main car.

    Anyway here are the pictures of the car from the ad and if you would like pics of my turbod rover beasty then let me know.

    Thanks Thomas.

    I take it that will be Petersfield train station.. I can meet you there and follow to his place if you like.. We can check the car over and make sure its straight and not worn out.. I can take my laptop so we can plug it in and see what errors/faults it has and make sure the milage is not clocked etc...

    As for the engine, I am not a diesel guy so you will need to get some tips from other members on that, but the rest of the car I know blindfolded. If your up for that PM me your mobile number etc and I will see you tomorrow afternoon if you like.
