    Default Vectra buying advice

    Hi,

    In the next couple of months I'm considering buying a Vectra 1.9 cdti sri 150. Is there anything i should look out for. Also once remapped does anyone have any post remap figures, 0-60 etc and how will it affect my mpg.

    Also what are popular mods for the vectra, nothing over the top, just subtle stuff. Normally mod my cars a bit but money is tight so not spending a fortune on this one. Pic below of my last modded car as a bit of an intro.

    Cheers for any advice you might have...

    I'm sure i've seen that car recently. I seem to remember the licence plate. Do you do many miles on the M62?

    Nice car by the way.

    Used to use the M62 a fair bit but sadly the M3 is gone now, currently have a range rover sport 4.2 supercharged but its got to go. Need to get something which will be economical and practica as i'll be covering alot of miles. Sorry to say it but whatever I get will be a step down but thats life.

    Currently i'm considering diesel versions of:

    Seat Ibiza
    VW Golf
    Octavia
    Passat
    Peugeot 306
    Audi a3/4
    Seat Leon
    Bora
    Vectra
    Astra
    Saab 9-3
    Cadillac bls
    Mazda 6

    Vectra is top of my list so far as i quite like the interior and thats where i'll be spending all my time.
    Oh and I only have a budget of 5k, any other suggestions would be appreciated

    No, although i've heard the money is pretty good and i do need a new job.

    Simple fact is that I can't get a BM within my budget with the spec that I want.

    Whatever I buy has to be '05 or newer, manage around 50mpg, fairly inexpensive to maintain and service, around 30k on the clock. half decent interior. Think there are a few more things but these are the main points. Now I know this is a vectra forum so it will be biased towards a vectra but any impartial suggestions would be handy.

    You would only just be into a BMW and a 320d compact at that.

    Vectra was made for the motorway and I find the indicators rather good. Makes sure you get the facelift. Skoda and the Mazda would be my next choices.
