    Default Looking for a Vectra-C

    Hi All,

    Joined as I'm looking for a Vectra-C, member of VXON and Z22SE, quite fancy a 2.2 or 2.OT (haven't seen too many of those about). The 1.9 CDTi (150) I would be happy with but they may be just out of budget!

    I have 5K, plus maybe a little bit, I'm upgrading from a Cavalier so it's a major jump LOL! I haven't considered my Cavalier for part-ex because although it's a tidy low-miler it's just not worth anything anymore!

    Anyway, as above, want a 2.2, 2.0T or a 1.9CDTi 150. Haven't considered 1.8 because too slow, 3.2 is too thirsty. Haven't considered anything else, particularly lower powered CDTi or other Diesels. To be honest haven't heard enough about them.

    I do about 500 miles a week, mainly motorway. Must have A/C (pref climate) and as many other bits as budget allows.

    You can get the 1.9 CDTi 120 and 150 for around 5-5.5K but they have a few miles on them. Just had a quick snoop around and there are not many 2.0T anywhere. Have you considered the Signum?
    I did find a '55 plate CDTi 150 Facelift SRi for £5495 with 80K but it was a cat D repaired. Looks nice though

    As for the 2.2's there are shed loads of them, just depends on what you want. No direct's though, still fetching too much money.

    to the site mate.

    Get yerself a CDTi 150 (not that I'm biased ). Ignore all the people on here that tell you the V6's are great, they just have more money than the rest of us and can afford the fill-ups

    Having said that, you might struggle to find a 150 for 5K, they're fairly recent and therefore still pricey unless you go for a really high miler. Plenty of 1.8s and Dtis for that money though.

    I saw that CatD too Caterman, I'd certainly give it a look (hey, it's only 27 miles from me )

    I would be happy with a CDTi 150, but as you have said budget pobably won't allow.

    I'd either have to get a low spec one or high miler, or indeed both .....

    Signums cheaper then? Going to look on Autotrader.

    Also, much difference between 120&150 and can the difference be overcome with upgrades (genuine not boxes that fool the ecu etc.)

    You can get a 120 remapped to around 165bhp (a remapped 150 is up near 200bhp!)
    I'm finding 2.2's for around 4.5K to 5.5K on 53 plates with 50k miles so not too bad!
    A nice 52 plate SRi 2.2 HERE for £4750 with 42K miles

    Signums just have a few more toys Nice one on an '04 plate for £5700 with 49k miles HERE

    The 120 remap, is that a legitimate tuner remap? I may consider that option, as I could afford a remap/rr session in about 6 weeks. Looking to buy within 2.

    I've got the money arriving next week, I'd promised myself a/c for the summer, just had a better year than I thought.

    Thought I was going to end up with a good Facelift Vectra-B, didn't expect to get into Vectra-C territory, which I think just look awesome.

    I'll look at the links you've sent.

    I'm in Surrey, Carshalton. Travel to Newbury three times a week, so could travel for the right car!

    Are the 2.2's all the same engine, like the Vectra-B's, obviously ignoring the later 2.2 Directs. When did the 2.2 Directs come in?

    Thanks
