    Default The VXR is leaving

    Hi peeps.
    not been on here for a wee while. Some of you that i have spoken too in the past may well be aware that things arent really running as I would have hoped for this year!

    Firstly in December there after returning back from Oz my relationship, well, ended. I was having issues with the Corsas brakes, 4 yes, 4 punctures in s many months, wages were dropping at work and there was rumour of me being made redundant. Things not looking too good for old Christof.........

    Anyway, wages situation has not improved, so I have had to get out of the VXR as it simply costs far too much to run, insure, tax yadda yadday. I have also had to move out of my flat and find somewhere cheaper! I literally just moved in there, but having to leave again already, humph.


    So, go to Arnold Clark Glenrothes and in 40 mins have traded in the Corsa for a 1.9cdti sri vec. Same as before but without nav, Now i love vecs but as you can imagine i was not exstatic about losing ma wee vxr humph.

    Proper depressed and awaiting the "big day" to change keys.... Oaft!

    Then, on a whim, me and my new other arf decide to head over to edinburgh for a run in the VXR to make the most of the last weekend al have it. Just out of curiosity go to Arnolds motorstore on seafield...... It all looked a bit dull and they are actually struggling for decent vectras because they are getting rare, then, out the corner of my eye, I see the tell tale sign of AFL................

    I basically poop myslef, sqeal like a piggy wrapped in clingfilm about to be penetrated by an elephant and start sprinting across the fore court........

    Long story short (as you have spent too much time reading this already), I have cancelled the order on my vec in glenrothes and have now bought

    Star silver
    Vectra 1.9 CDti 150 Nav
    with (cant believe someone paid for these to be options!!!!)
    Xenons/ skooshers AFL pack
    In car phone kit
    Parking sensors front and rear
    and of coarse NAV.........

    More excited by the AFL!
    so happy, and now not so angry that am losing my wee vxr!


    Pick her up Tuesday
    WOOPWOOP

    new car
    new hoose
    new man!

    Times they are a changin, turn that frown upside down!
    Booyakka!

    well after a caterman you'll have the same power as the corsa. just need to find a way to lose about 600kgs.....

    Sounds like a good find though, well done!

    Good job sounds like a v. nice Vec. I hope you dont mind me asking but how did the trade in value go with the VXR? Were the dealers desperate and prepared to deal or the usual trying to screw you?




    sqeal like a piggy wrapped in clingfilm about to be penetrated by an elephant
    LOL that made me laugh ya loon.

    No no, very good price for my corsa. I think they dont mind them as they can still sell them easily compared to a 2.8 lump.
    The dealer was acting very cool, until i told him that i had already bought a car in the other dealership........ then he was falling over himself to scrape a deal together so that i cancelled my first order!
    12 months tax
    full tank of diesel
    2 new tyres
    a good deal and also its the car i used to "create" on VXLs website but could never afford to buy, so all in im a very happy, erm, camper!
