    Default About to take the plunge.....

    Today could be the day I buy my 06 Vectra, thats providing I dont bottle it. Normally take 3 hours to buy shoes so could take a month to buy a car.

    Not had to buy a car for years as I've had company cars for ages so its a bit of a novalty at the moment.

    Why when I got to a car dealers do I always think they are having my pants down......?

    Thanks Guys,
    As predicted I went a i looked and walked away..

    Its an 06 Vectra SRI 1.8 13000 miles for £9.5k I'm looking at and the one I went to see today had a small scuff on the bumper which put me off initially.

    It was cold and wet and I didnt feel like haggling about it so walked away. But having come home and thought about it I'm going back tomorrow and see if we can do a deal its only a small scrape about 2" and i'm sure it wouldnt cost a lot to repair. The rest of the car seems mint.

    More updates to follow tomorrow.....

    try getting the repair as part of the deal..if they say no then 'chipsaway' www.chipsaway.co.uk will do it for about £75.. don't let it put you off an otherwise okay car..

    haggle them down due to oversupply of the 1.8 and you may even be in pocket..

    Dunno if you have an Arnold Clark near you mate or would be prepared to travel but they have quite a few 1.8 Sri vetra's between 9 and 10K many with factory fit Sat Nav, something worth bearing in mind.

    example

    I'm not biased with the ultra blue colour at all
