    Engine : Dirty diesel

    Year : 2006

    Default what made you buy a vectra/signum ?

    i appologise if this has been done already and i know that there are some ''what you drove before'' threads about but i was wondering ............ what made you buy your car in the first place ????
    (apart from me wanting one from the day they were released and not having the funds)
    fundementaly there was nothing wrong with the meriva 'design' we had for 2 yrs, it was quite a good spec and had a decent amount of toys, it was the lack of boot space and the iminent birth of peo no 3 that made up my mind, as you can see the boot is not the biggest in the world and with a pram in it you aint gona get much else in, the only reason i thought of this is the fact we have one as a courtesy car for a few days ... anyway thats the main reason for us eventualy getting into a vectra-c so whats your's ?

    It had a decent spec and was the cheapest for co car tax ,
    still kick myself for not getting a mondeo titanium x , my vectra at 30k feels like a 300k pakistani taxi , not good , vauxhalls in the past were built to last , standards have slipped a tad ....

    One of the reasons I bought mine is because I like Vec's and like Vauxhall's the other is cos I bought it cheap. 9 month old 3.0 V6 SRi with £10k off the list price

    Year : 2006

    was looking for a 3.2 elite Omega i found 2 but the price and high cost of insurance put a stop to that.
    then in the next ad i saw a GSi 3.2 a newer car and nearly £200 cheaper on insurance. so went looking at GSi's.

    I was looking around and just by chance came across this new vec c that had only just came out, never liked the new shape one's though but i had never seen a GSI before and when i walked around the back and noticed a 3.2 badge on the back i test drove it and went home in it 2 days later.

    A very happy ending

    I liked the look of the Signum from day one - then when I was looking for a car - I wanted something which was nearly new, a bit different and therefore rare on the road, and the maximum car for minimum money (I wasn't worried too much about depreciation as I was going to keep it for at least 6 years) - so a 3.2 Design auto at 10 months old from a main dealer for 11K seemed a good deal!


    What else - even today - can you get for 11K that nearly matches the criteria ?

    still miss it!

    I had a mad moment, a mate had his B written off, he was loaned a facelift, I toyed the idea of the fuel saving, and in looking for one for him I found mine, in hindsight I wish I hadn't, I only had 8 more payments on the Omega, so the extra fuel would have been offset by no payments, and let me tell yas, the Omega is probably the best car Vx ever made, roomy,handsome,comfy and reliable, and now I'm torn, do I do nothing or leave Vx, I defo need something more comfy with legroom in the back, the thread posted earlier about back pain brought it right back to me how unsuitable the Vec is for ppl over 5.10 tall.
