    Vehicle : 2007 Vectra

    Trim : SRi XP Saphirre Black

    Engine : 2.0 16v Turbo

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 60k

    Default My new car! (hope this is right section?)

    Well,

    finally done it! After 7 wonderful years in Vectra B, 2.5sri V6, 2.6 GSi, 3.0 converted GSI, i'm now the proud owner of a 55 reg SRi 150 CDTi.

    I must say, im hugely impressed, infact gobsmacked at the midrange and overtaking speeds! It feels quicker than my old 2.6 GSI, and similar to the 3.0 until around 90ish. (excited at the prospect of remap/tuning box!)

    So what do you think? 71,000 miles, one very very meticulous owner, inside it like its just come out of a showroom, it feels and looks brand new, with a lovely grippy steering wheel, tight seats etc! Wont tell you what i paid.. but it was over £1000 less than comparable ones, and i only had to put £400 towards the selling price of my Vec B GSI!!!

    Mike

    Vehicle : 2007 Vectra

    Thanks guys...

    Yeh, its a desirable spec, Metallic Black! The guy selling had 72 phone calls, and offers to pay alot more than i was paying! But 100% credit to him, he held our deal!

    Last week before i collected it, he had a new windscreen fitted (bonus) But also for the MOT it had cracked front road spring! So he had two new OE ones fitted! The thing is, i think it sits a little high! How long do you recon they should take to settle? Or are most of these models pretty high at the front?

    Im tempted by lowering, but dont want to end up with a rattling bone shaker like the Vectra B was!

    welcome to vec-C ..mighty fine looking motor youve got yourself...should drop a little more on the front after a while...but the front arches are higher so always gives a slightly different gap look
