    Default Possibly Getting Shot Of The Vec!!!

    Evening Boys And Girls, As The Old Bus Is Coming Upto 2 Years Old I Was Considering Getting A New Car!!
    When I Say New I Mean Different As I Dont Think I'll Ever Buy A New Car Ever Again ( Unless I Win It Big On Euromillions Then Its Vxr's All Round)
    So I Was Considering A Different Car:
    Options Are:
    1. Bmw 320 Se 02 Plate( I Have 2 Small Offspring)
    2. Audi A4 1.8t
    3. Lexus Is
    Any Opinions Are Welcome , I Have Just Been Out For A Spin In The Old Girl And I Really Dont Want To Sell It Especially As I've Just Got The Bsr Remap, Because I Know I Will Have To Drop A Couple Of Spec Levels But I Also Know That If I Keep The Vec It Will Be Worth Less Than A Gary Glitter Album In Two Years Time.
    Thanks Peeps Lol

    A mate of mine has a lexus IS200 and I must admit I don't rate it. Cheap interior made of mostly toyota components. To drive I really thought it would be quicker than it was. When we have a bit of fun he can't shake off the veccy.

    you've already took the biggest whack, holding on to it for a bit longer wont hurt

    bainie is rite... you cant loose another 11k.
    if you got rid now, say they give you 10k trade, and you buy a car for 10k retail, take the profit off that and your driving around in a car worth 7-8k on a trade in.

    My old Company car was an Audi A4 on a 51 plate. Never again through choice.

    The dealers was arrogant and workmanship was ****. Also reliability was the worst of any car I have had.

    About 4 years ago I had a 328i BMW as a company car, but although it probably had one of the finest engines I have ever driven, the car just did'nt exite me, and everyone else on the road treated you like a t...

    If I was going for the 'exec' range, it would have to be a Saab 9-3, if petrol I would go for the Aero, or Diesel the 1.9 TID 150 Vector Sport.
