    Default What car would you get?

    Imagine you were in the unfortunate position where, for example, your car got written off and the insurance has just paid out a nice whodge of cash....

    What car would you get? Would you get an identical car again? Or something else?

    I've just been thinking that if I was in a position like that I'd really not know what to go for. I really like Vectra's but whether I'd get another 3.0 V6 or something else - who knows........

    I would change from the GSi to the 3.0 v6 CDTi for the fuel economy. On a vigourous drive home the other day it cost me £60 to do 208 miles.

    And you'll find a 3.0 V6 isnt far behind a GSi for performance .

    With regards to economy, last week I went from Swindon to Leeds, driven around 3 days and came back all on a tank of fuel. Did around 490 miles - and the fuel light still wasnt on, so I'd think I'd of got another 30 miles

    I've got an 06 3.0 Cdti Siggy Elite with 45k on the clock. I use for business (opted out of company car scheme) and thinking of selling to get something with better fuel economy. Trouble is wouldn't get a lot, £9 - £10k tops and chose Siggy 'cos outrageous deprecation got me a powerful motor with all the toys. One year later and nearly 40k miles and it's really grown on me, a bit different, v. practical, lovely motor and loads of kit + that lovely feeling of getting a bargain!
    Without going up on miles or a year or two older I might have to go for another Siggy prob a 1.9 for slightly better fuel economy, reliability stories put me off a bit though.
    Quite fancy an Alfa 147 Lusso 1.9, tried one out before I got mine, nice drive, looks lovely, interior sweet with red leather, issue of Alfa reliability put me off then though and probably would again.
    In reality I'd opt back into Co. car scheme and go for something like Volvo V70, A3 Sportback.

    Nice thread to get the brain cells working

    I'd definately get the same again. Thought long and hard before i got the vec as their was plenty in the same price range (all diesels);
    volvo v40
    xtype
    passat
    bora
    even high mileage a4's or bmw 330

    although an audi tempted me, it wouldve been 3-4 years older with at least another 30k on the clock so the veccie won out. plus i love vauxhalls so that helped

    If I didn't have anyone to answer to, I'd buy an older, but fast car. Audi RS4, Passat R36 or whetever they used to be called, maybe even an older Vectra ST No warranty, less computers, more fun!
