    Default Missing my vec!!

    Guys

    Im missing my vec so bad!! When i had my CDTI 150 SRI i loved it so much!!! Shall i have another diesel?????????????????????

    I was talking to Chris today (aka Chris 3.2GSI) and we were discussing VXR's, and the price of them now..As i see they are dropping in price but is now the right time to buy?? Also what about the tax/fuel etc? When you buy a car like that you do wonder if its the right thing to do?? Or do i bide my time??

    Mmmmmm

    Million things go into choosing what engine you get mate - miles, enjoyment, type of roads etc etc...

    I reckon the prices are pretty good on the VXR's right now, obviously your probably only gona lose money on it, you do with any Vec!! but I'd be tempted m8, if it wasnt for the £400 tax, low MPG etc, what kind of miles do you do?

    How nice is that, not sure I'd choose silver but stunning cars for £10k

    think ur stuck with the high tax brackets whatever m8, the VXR is facelift only, least with 9k miles per year you dont have to worry too much about the mpg I reckon you just need to admit that having a 2.8 Turbo will be expensive to run but enjoy it for what it is

    Or if you're clever, you can go for a 2.8 Elite Vectra or Signum and get it a lot cheaper than you will a VXR, and a quick remap gets it up to similar power...

    Few bits of styling and you're on your way...
