    Default Is it worth it?????

    Hi all. Brand new to this forum.
    I am in desperate need of a fast vectra!!! I am addicted.
    MY story is that I bought a 3.2Elite on a 53 plate about 18 months ago....however being the practical type (and buying a new house) thought I could get something swap it for something fun but more economical. So 5 months ago part x'd it for Skoda Fabia VRS. Nippy , economical etc. But not my cup of tea. (oh what a mistake to think I could live without the oppulence of the vectra)
    So I have been looking to replace this with another Veccie.
    Found a 2005 on a 05 plate GSI manual - with 19inch alloys (vauxhall option from new) and full leather (believe £1k option at new) is has done 13k miles....
    price???? well £11999.
    This sounds ace to me - what about everybody else?
    Only offered me £9k for Skoda though which i think is low.

    Price for the GSi doesn't seem that far off..

    Go on.. you know you want to

    As for the skoda, well when you trade in, it's win/win for them, try a private sale and just take a cash wad with you??

    Welcome mate. Have you thought of a CDTi Veccy? Best of both worlds then.

    £9000 doesn't sound too far off the mark on the Fabia to be honest, I work in the motor trade at a franchised dealer and that sounds like the sort of price we'd offer. The dealer you part-exchange it to won't make any money on it, they'll just trade it straight out. (Unless they retail Skoda vehicles)

    However, you need some kind of a deal with them somewhere. £11999 for their car and a px price you're not happy with isn't a good deal. Rather than concentrating on £x for my car, £x for your car, look at the cost to change. If they can throw some money into the deal to help you out, it doesn't matter if you get £500 more for your px, or £500 off the car, you still gain by £500. Haggle with them a bit, and ask for it to be taxed as well!

    Sorry about the waffle, hope it helps you.
