Well I have been contemplating selling the Vec for a little while now, for a couple of reasons really.
As my personal circumstances have changed I could kind of do with something a bit bigger, and with it having an auto box, I find it harder and harder to stomach the 22-23mpg it returns in my normal week. (100% urban driving)
Well I have spent a month or two looking for a SRi estate version, or may be a Sigbum.
But it was not to be, you try finding a auto SRi estate !!! preferably a CDTI.
It would be easier to find hens teeth, lol.
Well today I done the deal and traded the old beast in, though it is going to be a couple of weeks before I actually exchange motors.
Well, what did I get ???
Another Vec of course, not a SRi, but a Design, 2.2DTi auto estate.
I was pleased to see it has everything the SRi has, except the sports suspension, and sports seats, and it is only on 16's.
On the up side, it has parking sensors, and rear electric windows.
Luckily I have 19's ready to go on, and the seats and suspension I could soon change if I feel the need.
However, it already has, Irmscher front spoiler and grill, and lower rear spoiler, and quad tailpipes, plus the side skirts are already colour coded, and it is in a very sexy blue colour !!! The 19's will finish it off nicely.
It's going to be a long two weeks......lol
And no it wasn't from a Nissan dealer, it was a supermarket which is franchised for Nissan, Renault and Vauxhall.
