    Default new to vauxhall bit of advice please

    as a newbie here im looking some advice. im waiting on the arrival of my new car its a 06 (06 plate) vectra sri 150 derv oil . i have noticed on here you talking about pre face lift cars and was wondering when they came out in 06 and what are the differences in the 2 cars. the dealer im buying mine from says its a march 06 car. if the car is a pre face lift would i be better shopping around for a post face lift. the car im buying has 30k and in dash sat nav full history and well looked after. also is it worth buying the extended vauxhall warranty. cheers in advance

    The facelift came out on a '55' plate so yours will be one, and it means a new front end, slightly different trim on the doors and dash and improved handling over the pre-facelift.

    There are some '06 cars out there that are pre-facelift

    See Brocks car for instance. I'e seen a few on the roads up and down the motorways too.

    If it's £7700 it must be a facelift as a pre on an '06 wouldn't be worth that.

    you can still tell if its a pre face or facelift from the side m8 look at the front bumper and also where the headlights come up the wing
