    Default Good Morning from a sunny North West!

    Good Morning!

    Just a quick hello to introduce myself. My name's Adam and I currently drive a 1999 Mercedes E-Class 2.8 petrol. (I know I know). Always wanted a massive V6 but for the 4th month in a row I've put 600 quid's worth of petrol in and I'm virtually bankrupt!

    So, last night I went (reluctantly) looking at much more economical cars and so, went looking at a Focus. (I know I shouldn't mention them in here but I used to have one!). Didn't seem anywhere near as good as I used to remember mine was so I started making moves for the exit when I saw a black Vectra near the door. Went over, had a look, 04 plate, 20k miles, under budget but a 1.8. Wasn't too sure whether that'd be TOO much of a decrease in engine size but went out in it and I was very surprised!

    It's much better suited for a young lad (just turned 22) than a maroon E Class but how come I've never noticed these cars before? Seemed pretty quick (much torquier than the Focus I had) and it means I get to go back to a manual (no bad thing) so, got back and said "I'll take it!".

    Pick it up on Friday so no doubt I'll be bombarding you all with questions about it over the weekend! Might ask a few now actually so keep your eyes peeled!

    Cheers,

    Adam

    Wow!

    What a great welcome! I can see this is going to be a cracking forum to add to the Favourites!

    Don't worry, Saturday afternoon and you won't be able to move without seeing pics of my new car!

    Thanks again for the warm welcome - much appreciated.

    Adam
