    Default End of warranty....Do i sell now?

    Right,the motors warranty ran out last night.
    It's had a new DMF at 15k and is waiting for the swirl,and oxy sensor replacements to arrive,reported before warranty end of course.

    So do i sell now,and replace with an 07 plate Veccy?
    Or take the chance and wait for the Insignia?
    Bearing in mind i've now done 33k,so this DMF has done more than the last one.....

    Good question indeed. Really is personal choice I think. Insignia is bound to have teething problems like any new car. But if you buy an 07 now and sell it within a year you will stand to lose a fair few pounds. If it was me and I fancied an Insignia I would hold out and buy one.

    Lol,no worries well it is getting late!
    It's still 5k of it's second service! lol
    Obviously i wouldn't be able to sell an 07 so quick,and thats the thing,i'd have to put up with new Insignia owners pulling up next to me,at the lights...parking next to me in Tesco,or trying to over take me on motor ways

    Every one thinking (your outa date there boy,catch up!)

    Or is that all in my head? And am i being a silly TW4T.....?

    aS ALWAYS gents your honesty is appreciated....

    I have a pre-facelift and would like a face-lift vectra - dont think the insignia will bother me tbh.

    When I had the Audi and a new model came out I still preffered the look of the one I had.

    I know the feeling you are talking about though.

    Just cos it's out of warranty shouldn't mean you should sell. UNLESS you think it could become a money pit.

    Thats exactly what i'm scared of,fuel pumps fitted aren't cheap,and if it needed another DMF......well.

    Fantastic engine,faultless,but the reliability of the bits bolted onto it scare me

    If you go for a brand new car don't forget the new Darlingtax for the 1st year which effectively pushes list up by a grand.
