I am new to your web site and like to introduce myself. A few of you will know me as Sparky from other boards, having started my chat board life on the original Vectra-Sport. I now have a Vectra C having come from my modified Vectra B (3.2 v6) with the original number plate of V6 VXL. Well thats gone and I have moved on.
The new Vectra was delivered yeterday can I be a little bold to tell you its number plate will be T28 VXR, so its not difficult to guess what it is. Of boy is it excellent.
With only 130 miles on the clock now its really impressive, not a raw as my B was. The engine is so smooth even from low down, the car feels allot bigger than the B. The car had a good drive home with mostly dual carrriage way, so speeds range was from 55 to 70 mph. The economy was very impressive at 41 mpg. The torque is very good, delivering a good spread ( for the little rpm I can use). I think and only think that it may be pulling better in 5th than my B did but it was long time ago I started the order for the original Astra and now the Vectra having cancelled the Astra. And am I glad I did. The space in the back is very good considering the size of the Recaro's. Its goos to see that the design is different to the Astra and I think look better, as the bolsters and the head rest especially are not pointed. The car comes standard with rear electric windows, Xenon headlights and automatic A/C.
I ordered the car back in September, with Nav, 19's and paint and the Bluetooth handsfree kit, which is excellent.
Anyway I have waffled on and on, so here's me amd look forward to chatting to you all.
