    Default Finally got it! SRi CDTi

    After a perilous 4 hour train journey, a good wander around Aberdeen then 2 hours in traffic trying to get out of the city, I got the Vectra!

    Love the drive, love the torque and love the economy (Not quite as good as I had hoped for but with only 26k miles, it might loosen up a bit yet.)

    Going to run it standard for a few weeks then will see about fitting the caterman I have. Just want a good idea of 'before and after'





    What is the name of that blue too? The first one I was going to get was still at the dealers and although they said it was 'engine problems', they showed me the car. Huge amount of body damage all round the car so glad I held out!

    Well, the last car I had was silver, black before that so have not actually owned a 'colour' since 2003!

    Delighted with it. Smooth, quiet inside, comfy, sensible!

    It may get lowered eventually and as mentioned, caterman box added but not really wanting to be doing too much this time.

    The coupe was modified, changed, fiddles with, altered and it was still a good car but it would always play on my mind!

    Its nice to own something with such a low mileage and rattle free!
