    Default hello peeps

    Hi everyone!

    New kid on the block .

    06 2.2i Direct SRi being prepared at Vauxhall dealer. Only 6000k on the clock. One previous owner. I am a little apprehensive seeing as this is my first Vauxhall. I come from a family of Japanese/German car owners so there were a few eyebrows raised when I dropped the name Vauxhall. My former car being an M-reg Honda Accord 2.0i, an exceptionally good runner but was showing it's age. The poor thing was written off about four weeks ago (delivery van took it out, his fault - honest )

    How I got here...

    A Fella in my neighbourhood is still selling a Vectra 1.8i 52, dark metallic blue for £3295 (originally £3695) - I have to say it looked good. I kept passing it on the way to and from work so I gave him a bell and took it for a spin.

    First impressions weren't good, with 75000k on the clock, four previous owners and no service history I was sceptical. Gear stick was lose/wobbly and notchey, it rattled inside and shocks felt like they had seen better days. The engine sounded good with no stuttering, squeaks or knocking. I kept thinking how could a car look so good from the outside, yet be so bland on the inside? I was intrigued. So I tracked down my nearest Vauxhall dealer seeking more info.

    I never made it into the lobby, as I drove into the parking area I spotted an 06 face lifted Vectra for £9995. 17inch alloys, and twin port exhausts combined with a rather fetching bluey/grey metallic paint finish, hit the right tone, and the interior looked more up to date. I realise with a little more patience I could have probably found a 1.9 CDTi with satnav, but not with an 06 plate, 6000k on the clock, in excellent condition for under 10 grand. I bought it for £9750 incl road tax & a full tank. The avatar is the only pic I have, I'll post some more later on.
