    Default Goodbye Vectra C

    Well, thatís it, Vectra C is no more as of this year. Such a huge shame, but car design moves on I guess, as will we I suppose in time. With no future plans for Signum either, we now have the choice of 4 door saloon, 5 door hatch and 5 door estate, no Signum executive hatch variant. Having only recently bought a Vectra C, I cannot understand why I didnít buy one sooner. Iíve had Vectra Bís for the last 3 years thinking I wouldnít like the Vectra C as I was and still am a huge fan of the Cavalier. As Vectra B was so similar to the Cavalier I thought that would be the better option at the time. I was wrong. I do like the Vectra B and the two I owned gave me miles of trouble free motoring, but the Vectra C is an a completely different league. Itís so refined and comfortable, has so much equipment and handles so much better than other cars in its class (even though the press would disagree). I was never too sure on the styling of the Vectra C either but after it was out a while it grew on me and now I love it. Angular lines and bold features make it a very hansom car. I have the 3.2V6 GSi with all the extras, and if I wanted something with the same level of equipment from lets say a German manufacturer I would be paying probably twice the price, and I simply cannot justify that, whether I could afford it or not. Now, on to the Insignia. What a replacement, Iím not yet sold on the interior but the exterior is beautiful and I love some of the technology that will be available on it. I canít wait for the VXR variant and when it hits the used car market.

    I too will be keeping my Vectra for another couple of years...Seems too costly at the mo to try and replace it...and coz the current spec is hard to better, why bother frankly.

    Getting some cosmetic stuff done to her next year, and she will still be around for the forseeable...

    I pass my cars on when they reach 3 years... ie. out of warranty, so I shall be looking around for something in about a years time. I've been very pleased with this vec c, a lot of car for comparitively little money, never had any major problems with any of the VX cars I've had. I've always bought new (well the last six have been) but may next time be looking at a new plate with just a couple of K on the clock, might save some of that big depreciation I keep incurring.
    I would think there's going to be some good deals on the vectra's once the Insignia hits the streets, so I for one would'nt mind having another if its the right price. Probably get 2 veccies for the price of one Insignia.
    Shall have to see... :-)) I often buy things I dont need on a whim, last year I bought a Westfield just as a plaything purely because I fancied one, it was okay I suppose but after 6 months my enthuisasm wained and I lost a few grand when I sold it, same with a few expensive m/bikes I've had in the past... up to my mid fifties anyway.
    You have to have your toys... at any age...LOL just cant afford the one's I'd really like.
