    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default Hi got a decent car at last

    Passed my test in 1977, didn't drive till 1996 (marriage,mortgages,children etc...). Now happily divorced, I'm on my second Vectra-C after a 45bhp Fiat Uno and a 59bhp Astra 1.4 LS.

    First Vectra-C was an 53-plate Active 1.8, 7 miles on the clock and £4000 off list price (I went in initially for an Astra 1.6 SXI!). After two years I found an 04 SRi Edition 100 which is a real wolf in sheep's clothing,drives well and looks the business.

    With the blue half-leather seats, silver seatbelts, sports dials, 16-spoke alloys and rear wing spoiler it makes the good-looking standard SRI even nicer to look at, and the Saab turbo engine's a gem. It's a real hoot leaving in your wake so-called better cars whose drivers think it's 'just another Vectra'! Why buy a Saab 'Vector' Sports saloon when you can get the Edition 100 for much less money? It's a rocket-powered armchair!

    If I had the readies I might look at the BSR remap, but with 6 points I'll stick to cruising for now. I might replace the rear tyres when they're due with 225/45's, though. I understand they would be okay with 215/50's on the front - is that so?

    Not that bothered about other mods at the moment, as the Edition 100 certainly does everything I want it to. Nice to know so many other people rate the 'C', although I did like the aerodynamic wing mirrors on the Vectra 'B'.
