    Default Evening all :-)

    Just thought I would introduce myself.

    I found this place yesterday and have been reading through some very interesting posts. Maybe I should have looked at this forum first prior to getting the car.

    Anyway I got myself a 54 plate Vectra 1.9 CDTI design with the CDC40 Dab radio. Not a bad bit of kit I might add although not the easiest to operate whilst you are driving.

    She is an ex lease motor so has a complete history. Not sure what made me go for the Vectra really. I had been looking at some well specced Laguna's but I was spooked by so many reliability issues then this just cropped up and the price seemed right.

    Criteria was an Economical deisel that was under £200 quid tax whilst still offering some performance and I hope reliability. Seems the CDTI may not have been the best choice.

    Have to say I'm over the moon with the initial consumption of 52Mpg.

    Previous motor is a BMW 540I 24MPG Although you do get the grin factor of the V8 noise and RWD action.

    Enough waffle from me

    to the site.

    I think you will be happy with the vectra, good car for the money. Notice I say for the money as I'm sure the 540i was a top motor but top dollar too?

    Is it the 120 or the higher powered 150 you've got?
