    Default Price check please!

    Hi, just a little advice on pricing please.

    I have got two cars at the moment to choose from, both 2005 Elite auto Vectras. The difference being either the 1.9, or 3.0 engine.

    On paper there is not much in it, 1.9 = reg'd Feb '05, 13kmiles £11500 and the 3.0 = Sep (just missed facelift!) 2005, 20k miles and £12000

    These prices seem reasonable to me, any thoughts? Particularly regarding any difference in depreciation and service costs.

    I'm just about to pop out to test the 1.9, and hopefully will be trekking over to Liverpool (from Sheffield!) tomorrow or Friday to meet the 3.0, so that may help in the decision making!

    Thanks for your help, Christian.

    I reckon you could pick up a facelift for that kinda cash, a 1.9 anyway in eliter spec, certainly plenty of designs around for under 12k facelift, and the design is a very nice spec ...

    The 3.0 is a belter. Manual or Auto? Servicing costs should not be to much higher for a 3.0 over a 1.9, depriciation may be a factor.

    I had same dilema last year, either a facelift 1.9 or pre-facelift 3.0. Personally I prefer the look of the prefacelift, and love the 3.0 engine.

    IMHO both of the cars you are looking at are overpriced. I paid 12500 a year ago for a 3.0 sri eatate with 11,000 miles on it & less than a year old (June 05). I know it's not an elite, but then again the estates fetch more!

    The dealer I purchased from has currently got a June 06 facelift 3.0 sri estate in with 9000 miles for £12995. Obviously he'll take a bit less than that for it.

    Hi guys, thanks for the input. I just dropped the hammer on the 1.9. I'm thrilled with the deal, £10000 for the car, an excellent part ex deal, over £200 more than other dealers, and they are paying for + handling the change of my private reg which I have had to pay £80 for in the past along with sorting all the hassle out myself.

    So I can now claim official membership of the forum (well, in 2 weeks anyway!!)

    Cheers gang.
