    Default Vectra Design 1.8

    Hi Guys its Me back again!!!

    After leaving the Vectra fold last April / May I have always been wanting another one. A good deal has just come up that is very tempting at the moment and I need your advice.

    I can get a brand new Veccy Design 1.8VVVTi as my new car.

    Although i guess it won't be a patch on my old SRi CDTi 150 how are these to drive? Is the handling ok? what is the spec level like? Is the engine MAN enough for a car the size of the Veccy?

    I think it will be worth paying £895 for the plus pack (17" alloys & CD70 with colour screen (strange when CD70 is £1295))

    Will it be a worth while as I will have to hold on to this for 3 years? so has anybody got a 1.8VVTi?

    Cheers
    Tim.

    Ive got a 1.8 VVTi but mines an SRi. although the engine seems up to the job, you could always have yours chipped/re-mapped and do the airbox mod (unless this invalitates your insurance).

    also if you can get the CD70 for that money, go for it, i couldnt be happier with mine!

    Even the old 1.8 wasn't bad but the car was slightly heavy for it.

    I would say try to go bigger if you can and ideally a CDTi if possible

    Thanks for the replies. I had the CD70 in my old Veccie as well as the CDTi so I knwo how good both of those are.

    Unfortunatly cannot get a CDTi 120 or 150, so this deal through work is on the 1.8VVti Design or Life.

    Can't do anything engine wise unless it is removeable like the Tuning box for the CDTi which would be a shame

    The design is a very nice spec, i would certainly have one over an SRi .. The vvti engine seems to be getting a good writeup as well ...

    welcome back btw ...
