    Default Have i gone OTT - car advert for ebay

    Well cars going on ebay today - below is what I was going to list have i gone too far lol, have i missed any points i should list.

    Vauxhall Vectra 3.0 SRI CDTI 24v V6 Auto

    This is a very rare car, not only is it the top of the rage sports diesel model but it also comes with the added options of an automatic / tiptronic 5 speed gearbox but also full black leather trim with heated front seats.

    Performance with economy

    This car will easily return 45mpg + on motorway driving (70-80mph) if you wanted to sit at 56mph its quite easy to get well over 50mpg, round town you will get about 30-35 mpg.

    Insurance is a lot cheaper than the V6 petrol models I currently pay just over £200.00 a year and that includes full business use.

    Road fund licence does not fall in the higher bracket like many of the larger Auto cars.

    Performance of the vehicle can only be described as fantastic, 175BHP and bags of low down torque mated to the auto box ensures you have all the power you want when you need it.

    Car Details

    Registered 15th May 2005

    MOT till 15th May 2009

    Tax End July 2008

    Full dealer service history, this car has the ecoflex service system which gives a service interval of up to 30,000 miles, since owning the car I have had the vehicle serviced every 20,000 miles. Next service not due until about 94,000 miles or May 2010.

    2 previous owners – Vauxhall Motors Fleet first owner then registered by Peter Blake Vauxhall Chesterfield .

    Genuine mileage 70,000 (mainly motorway I purchased vehicle with 7,000 miles in Feb 2006)

    Specification

    • Full SRI specification
    • Ice cold air conditioning, just re-gassed and cleaned.
    • Full traction control, stability control, brake force distribution, ABS however bad the road conditions this car will stay on the road and if the car does start to skid the electronics will bring the car back into line, this is the same systems fitted to the range topping BMW and Mercedes cars.
    • Cruise Control
    • CD player with steering wheel controls
    • Remote central locking (2 keys as supplied by Vauxhall)
    • Electric Front Windows
    • Front sports seats heated perforated leather, lumber support, fully adjustable
    • Height and reach adjustable Leather sports steering wheel


    • SRI Sports exterior pack, sports bumpers front and rear, side skirts, rear lip spoiler (Factory Standard)
    • JDL SRI rear spoiler (professionally fitted)
    • Lowered Sports Suspension (factory Standard).
    • Upgraded 314mm vented brakes (factory Standard).
    • 17” Alloy wheels with brand new tyres all round.
    • Black Sapphire metallic paint
    • Security comfort privacy glass (can be removed if not wanted as its a laminated film fitted to the inside) Limo black to rears, light smoke tint to fronts
    • Twin exit exhaust system with chrome tailpipes (Factory Standard)
    • Front fog lights.

    This is a genuine sale of a genuine car, over 2 years of ownership the only time this vehicle has been into Vauxhall other than service was for a replacement steering wheel sensor, the car has never let me down and is a pleasure to drive (took it all the way to Spain on a driving holiday).

    Any inspection welcome, test drives welcome but only in your insurance covers you fully comprehensive to drive my car otherwise you’re a passenger.

    Err.... you might want to refer to it as "top of the range", not "top of the rage" - unless you're implying it's particularly suited to chasing after bad drivers, cutting in front of them, doing a half handbrake turn to block the road, and then you get out and walk up to the offending car shouting "YOU WANT A PIECE OF ME???!! ".

    Looks fine mate -bigger the better IMO.

    I normally start typing mine about 3 weeks before I list then , lets me keep adding as I find things, usually ends up being about 3 pages long and needed 7 weeks to read it , but totally agree, best to straight about eveything .

    From personal experience, I doubt I would ever buy anything from eBay that had a 5h1tey short description!


    Bye bye Vec B
