    Default Bye Bye DTi

    Hello Direct!!!!!!!!
    Well i left the house at 4:00 this morning and headed down to Northallerton to take a gander at the 2.2 Direct SRi i've had my eye on.
    Arrived at half 7 and met one of the guys who worked there who had the car sitting out for me to have a look at. I started it up and was utterly amazed at how quiet it sounded and looked, it was like a brand new engine. After going over the car and spotting the usual kirbed wheels and touched-up stonechips i had a good look through the service history and invoices from work that had been done and i found out that the fuel pump had been replaced last August. Anyway after going over my DTi and how it wasn't standard blah blah blah the guy offered me £3500 for it but i said i wanted more lol. Managed to get a deal for £3650 which meant i gave him £850 for a car that i must say is 10x better than the pile of sh*te the DTi was!!! The brakes will need replaced quite soon as well as the tax and MOT but i might just get them all done at the same time. The car drove amazing all the way home, powered up the M6 silently......That was till i got to the roundabout at Asda Hamilton where the front passenger side wheel started squealing when i took a left turn. I phoned the guy straight away who said to get it checked out tomorrow at a garage then give him a phone. All in all i'm dead chuffed with it. I know i've said before how much i loved the last 2 veccys but this has to be the best yet. The way the engine purrs away like a mouse is unreal. My mums 1.8 57 plate Astra is louder!!!

    An added bonus was the fact the car has 4 brand new Goodyear NCTs!!

    Here's a quick pic i took when i got to work at 1:30 this afternoon.......... I'll post more up tomorrow once i've had the wheel looked at, washed it and got the stuff i stripped from the diesel.

    Cheers guys. I'm surprised at what was left out of the car when it was made.

    No chrome window strips, no courtesy light under the rear view mirror and no auto-dim mirror. I still can't get over how quiet the engine is
