    Arrow Newbie - Advice on buying...

    Hi!

    Thought I'd sign up as I'm in the market for a mile muncher and the Vectra SRI seems to fit the bill. Went to look at a 2.2 Auto today at a main dealer with just 17k on the clock and it is mint. They want £6995.00 for it which seems like a pretty good deal to me from a main dealer. I've managed to get them to throw in superguard, 12 months tax and a full tank of gas aswell which is a bit of a result.

    I haven't signed on the dotted line yet but does this sound like a good deal?

    Couple of questions:-

    What can I expect in mpg as it's the 2.2 auto? Most of my driving will be motorway.

    Where can I get some 19" multispoke alloys as seen in the exterior pack version, not the snowflakes.

    Cheers

    Sorry, it's a 56. 17k and has been serviced twice at 6k and 13k.

    No link as it's only just come in and i've had my details down with them for a couple of weeks.

    Superguard is the paint sealant protection system you can have applied.

    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 140 Ecoflex S/S

    Year : 2013

    Default

    Not far off the mark on price http://www.wisebuyers.co.uk/index.js...F56&mileage=17 considering it's got 12 months tax. Could always haggle a bit with this info or try and get some extras thrown in. How about the next two services for £0.
