    Vehicle : 2007 Vectra

    Trim : SRi XP T Saphirre Black

    Engine : z20net

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 80k

    Default Thinking of going back to a GSI

    Someone talk me out of this maddness!

    Ive got a immaculate 1.9 CDTi sat perfect on eibachs, 19 VXR rims & full CD70 colour nav.... and im pinning for a 2.6 GSI?

    Wouldnt mind, but ive had 3 vectra Bs, and i thought i was over them, hence buying this C. But!! No mater how much i clean, polish and mint up this car its just not inspiring the same in me as the B did!

    I found myself envious of Vectra B GSIs at PVS... although in theory my car should be better as it does everything spot on, and looks amazing....

    Anyone else feel they want to go backwards so to speak??

    can understand anyone wanting to go back to a B, imo the C (apart from the wing mirrors!) is far superior. however, if its going to make you happier then why not ?

    Cheers guys... Still got the itch for vec B! But right now more confused as went on 130mile drive with the wife today, just for the hell of it.... Which I can do nowadays as its diesel! We went all over.. Mostly coastal!

    Anyway, got me thinking, other than vec B aesthetics, I might just miss the V6 stuff, like the lack of extra legs on motorway! I know is quick, but I want more grunt! But with diesel practicality...

    What's the 3.0 diesel like? How much more noticable is the power over my 1.9? Also... How does it sound any ideas?

    Cheers

    Mike
