    Default How far did you go to buy your Vectra?

    Hi, Just interested if anyone can beat my story when I purchased my veccy, I live in Preston, lancs and have had mine a couple of months now and bought it from a lad in Newquay cornwall, yes 351 miles away! I caught the train to manchester airport, got on a plane and flew down to Newquay airport as it was cheapest way to travel and much quicker (45 mins) where i had a quick drive around, satisfied myself with the car, paid up and drove home!! (Had a trip to the coast first though) Took a toal of 11 hours from leaving my house to returning and did it on half a tank of juice! Reason I went so far wasn't really for the spec' of car as its just a cdti 120 life, but is a 54 plate not even 4 year old, both taxed and tested for just 3K. It is an ex company car so has got the odd scratch here and there but hey bargain methinks. Cruise control came in very handy on drive back I might add.

    Only 30 miles to get mine.

    I was going to buy a Saab 200 miles away as it met the spec I wanted but the dealer wouldn't take a deposit without me seeing it. He sold it before I could get there.

    I've flown from north Scotland down to Manchester, caught the train to Preston, then got my dad to give me a lift to burnley for a Signum I wanted form Motorpoint. By car it's about 400 miles, but was probably more than that in total...

    I'll generally go wherever I have to if it's the car I want - the country isn't that big really...

    Looking at one in Bath when I get home I hope...

    around 330 mile round trip for me, long way to go for a car I thought until I read this thread! Live in Stoke, bought it from a fine young lady in wokingham ! had a test drive, rang for a car check & left a deposit, then thought whilst i was there I might as well pop in the local bank & get the cash saving another trip...
