    Default Worth so much to me, yet so little to the trade :(

    Well its time for the Vectra C to go.

    Wifey is due our third baby next weekend and having tried all the seats across the back row, it can happen but is not practical.

    So, i thought to myself if i was going to resign myself to the people carrier route i might as well make it a decent one, so this morning i shall be viewing a 2003 Zafira GSi in black, with the hope of leaving a deposit on it or taking it away today, as its in Bournemouth and i am a fair distance from there.

    But, i am surprised to read from our Glasses Guide at work, that the trade price is £5850! ****** hell i just paid off the loan i had against it at £8500 two months ago.

    I'd ideally like £6500 minimum as its a very well cared for car, just had a VX service and four new Goodyear Eagle F1's and a years tax. Still thats cars for you i guess but i hope this Zaffy holds its money better. Also its more about the price to change, not what either car is worth really.

    The car i am looking at has 24k on the clock and good bodywork/history. Insurance is surprising at £450 for a 29 year old living in Beirut lol.

    Spent last night whipping headunit/sub/amp out of the Vectra, will possibly have an Irmy grille for sale/swap for Zafira one.

    Thanks for reading.

    Unfortunately that's the Veccy's biggest weak spot is the fact that they ain't worth diddly second hand but need's must and you are replacing it with a cracker !!!!!!!Alway's fancied a Zaffy myself they just seem like a belting all round tool !!

    Back in a V6 !!!!!!!!!!!! And lovin it !!!

    I'm in a similar position, I settled the finance in May for about 8k which is nearly twice what the car is worth !

    I'll be keeping it now I reakon and running it into the ground.

    Good luck for the baby BTW

    Well the deal is done

    Went down to Bournemouth this morning and bought a Zafira GSi Turbo.

    2003/03
    24,700 verified miles
    Black
    6 months warranty
    Just been serviced including cambelt and rollers (every 3 years i guess?)
    Short tax but there you go
    Fresh MOT being put on it
    Being delivered to me in Hemel all the way from Bournemouth
    £8495

    Mine
    2005/05
    26,000 verified miles
    Ex network Q warranty expired in May
    Just been serviced including brake fluid change
    Tax being retained by me (lots left!)
    Being picked up when Zafira is dropped off
    £6100 as some bodywork and wheel damage evident but not bad considering book trade is £5850

    Cost to change £2395

    I think thats a good deal and all i need to do now is get my plate on retention and get a bank draft and then they can deliver my Zafira to me
