    Default vectra gone....heres it's replacement

    well as you should of guessed from my forum signiture of the last few days the vectra has gone!

    after one of the springs snapping and then a wheel bearing noise that was getting louder as the week went on i decided to test the water at the garage i got it from back in february. i paid £2300 for the vec and after some mild haggling he offered me £2100 part exchange!

    considering what it would cost me to sort the springs and bearing i took the plunge before anything else went!

    i stripped the car of my mods before the trade, and heres the replacement!

    comments welcome good /bad

    i got rid of a 58 plate civic to buy my vectra i found the civic uncomfortable very bad to get in and out of and that stupid designed rear window which does not have a wiper is a nightmare for vision when reversing etc unlike my vectra which ticks all the boxes for what i need .
