    Default Welcome me to the world of Vec C ownership

    Hello everybody,

    can't believe what I've done to my beloved Vec B - traded her in for a 1.8 Design Vec C.

    Had a choice of Design or SRI versions, but my thought process said to me "start with the car that has the better options list", so air-con in the back and rear leccy windows swayed me towards the design.

    I have said that this one won't get modded, but I'm already looking for some 17's and a rear spoiler - That promise lasted a long time not !!

    Thanks for the welcome guys - still not convinced I've done the right thing, but I'm sure i'll fall in love with the replacement once i've bonded with it and given it a damned good detailing session. No pictures yet, but the stealers have got a few cosmetic items to sort as well as fitting parking sensors free of charge.

    The old car was a dualfuel, so i could come and go through london without paying the damned congestion charge - I'm going to miss that benefit, but at 10yrs old, she is at that age where serious decisions need making, especially since any replacement would not benefit from CC exemption.

    I know that there is an exhaust manifold blow - could be expensive if the usual studs snap. She also needs a new f18 gearbox (and clutch while it's out !) and i'd be looking to replace the front discs and pads. Add the costs up, and it equals more that the value of a 10yr, 100k car.
