    Thumbs up Westy joins the gang....

    Evening all.

    New here so please be gentle. Have just sold my treasured, (but slowly becoming high maintenance!), Mondeo TDCi, and traded it for a really rather brill '05 Vectra SRI CDti. Looks like an absolute stunner and goes like it too!! It's the 120 8 valve jobby, but hell it's quick - and my Mondeo was like **** off a stick so this came as a real surprise.

    It's all factory, no added extras, just the stock package - 17" alloys, (look the biz), side sills and front rear deep bumpers, subtle lip spoiler. Oh, and its in Black Sapphire Mettalic - lovely looking car. Fully stamped since new, and cannot feel, hear, or sense any nagging issues - feels like new, and looks it.

    76k on the clock and like most oil burners is just about running itself in

    Biggest surprise? How quiet it is! Sounds like, (from inside), the '57 plate renter i had when the Mondeo went for repairs due to vandals . That was a 1.8 petrol, (oh-my-god what a slug!), but this is as quiet?!! Work that out. Only when you introduce your toes to the carpet do you detect any kind of distant rumble, (actually quite like it - makes a right rort).

    Love the car, only things i miss are the absolutely blinding audio system in the Mondeo - amazing to say the least, but the Vec, even with it's extra tweeters, simply cannot compete. The Ford had the 6000RDS factory unit and was wicked, the Vec is ok, but the corner cutting in the rear, (ahem Mr Vauxhall - mid range units that fart at anything over half volume and no tweeters? Shame on you!), dampens the rear seat appeal. Also, the leg room at the rear is a bit more cramped - but for the clientelle, (12 and 9 year old), it'll do just fine.

    Love it so far - no doubt you'll see me around on the other parts of the site.

    Pictures to come soon....

    Cheers

    Westy
