    3.2 - belt may need changing soon, so check when it was last done. It's surprising to see leather seats in a plod car, usually they had cloth. The paintwork will never have been polished whilst it was plod-owned, just jet washed, or even worse, scrubbed with a water-fed brush that gets thrown on the floor and collects grit. Trim and carpet inside the boot is often butchered in the estates, to make space for various lock boxes etc that plod use. Plus often the extra wiring they have is removed really crudely, giving electrical issues.

    the car has had 5 owners since... i don't think there will be any surprise electrical issues with it.. just your standard vectra ones, the 3.2L specific problems and the fact that the old owners might got rid because it needs the timing done or something else that is expensive to do at garages.

    There you go, RDB85, Northpole has given his guarantee there'll be no electrical issues. If there are any, be assured his guarantee is good at any repairing garage that's VAT registered, from Land's End to anywhere west of the Ural mountains.

    Not heated seats and not auto lights wrong light switch and mirror. With aerial at front probably ex piggy and white. Plus the est normally suffers from rear quarter glass faults on alarm system on display.

    I didn't say buy it. You assumed I did and you assumed wrong.

    I told you before you are in the special nugget club, and guess what? You just proved you are.

    Yes, you did indeed use that kindergarten-level insult previously, and many others like it, before. The quality and utility of these contributions speaks volumes about you.

    The kindergarten antics from you are worse than mine... but this is off-topic so if you want to address this further PM me.

    Back on topic: I wouldn't buy that 3.2 for the simple reason getting the engine parts is equally as hard as getting parts for the 3.0v6 cdti... and when you do find them they are either used or seriously expensive. And that is even before the obvious things that aren't right. Pointed out before by others
