    Default 2nd time lucky

    After having my previous Vectra written off, I thought to I'd get a cheap runaround car, and saw another DTi (2.0) going cheap. Picked it up yesterday for £650! Mechanically it's in good condition. It's a 2003 (03) saloon, with 140k on the clock, in white. I think it might be an ex Government vehicle or police car, I'm not sure. I doubt it's a taxi as the mileage would be higher, but for £650, as long as it gets from a to b, I'm happy. It's LS spec, with alloys though. I intend on putting my posh SRi lights on it from my old Vectra to make it look a bit better.

    Few minor niggles with it. One being you can't lock the drivers door. When I lock the car, they all just unlock again so I do it manually and then manually force the drivers lock down.

    Another one, I thought the rear wiper had been broken off, but it turns out saloons don't have rear wipers lmao.

    And finally the front suspension looks like it's on its way out. The front looks slightly lower than the back.

    I do intend on sorting it all out, as I've got the salvage Vectra from before on my drive. It is a bit dull going from a Design, with a GID, to a LS with a TID, but hey.

    I will upload some pictures in due course. The good thing is, I've still got my courtesy Astra, so all Vauxhall here lol :P
