    Its about the right price as its got a fair bit of mileage on it, seen 2001 models up for less but its nothing to worry about, Vectras you get a lot for your money.

    was out testing the range on our new 2 way radio's, went for a walk and then stumbled upon them, he has a pitch about 1/3rd of a mile away and have driven past it a good few time's....just not walked ''that'' way before that's all

    My point being,'guy selling cars in a pub car park'.
    WHY?

    Sounds very suspect to me.Their probably damaged repaired,outstanding finance or something just waiting to go kerput.

    You have been warned.It'll end in tears.

    The cars he was selling in the car park - had he bought them or had they merely been parked up by punters in the pub?

    the guy has a sale's pitch down the road from where we were working and it was full of other car's, these were all there in the car park so he had more room on his pitch, he has been selling on his pitch for year's and is a quite reputable dealer.....all log book's history pack's where with him and he was genuine enough with me, the sale's pitch was full and i had driven past it earlier that day, i went for a walk the opposite way to that i had driven earlier, to kill a bit of time and check out our 2 way radio and walked past them in the pub car park..................


    SO DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THE 2.2DTI LUMP IS LIKE ??????
