    Default My first Vectra (and Vauxhall for that)

    Well, I took the advice of my Ford garage and DID NOT buy another Ford Diesel!

    I picked up my 08 plate Vectra CDTi SRI 150 on Saturday and so far am very happy with it. Saw the colour and fell in love with it. What do people think - haven't seen many red ones and I think it looks pretty tasty with the 19" snowflakes. It's done 9k and has nav, 19's and parking sensors fitted and was under £10k!

    I am looking forward to playing with it am making subtle modifications (like HIDs, folding mirrors, bluetooth etc) but really like how it looks and drives so don't want to change much.

    Drove it back from Newcastle last night - nearly 300 miles and averaged 53mpg at around 75-80 which I was well impressed with.

    My traded-in focus is parked next to it in the pictures - Vectra looks so much nicer! No end of problems with the Focus, and on advice from Ford themselves, I steered clear of another Diesel Ford - I quote the service manager "dunt bother with Ford diesels - they are sh** - can't go wrong with a petrol 'un!" Great advice, but no thanks!
