    Engine : 2.0 16v Turbo

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 60k

    Default Been offered a swap, a 3.0 for my 1.9, is it worth it?

    Sorry, me again!

    As you know, i'm considering uping to a 3.0. Strangley, through circumstances a wierd thing happened this morning and i got offered the following swap.

    Metallic Blue, 55 Facelift SRi 3.0 V6 completely standard, 89000miles

    for mine

    Saphirre Black, 55 Facelift SRi 1.9 CDTi 80000miles but i got nav & 19" rims.


    Im not to bothered about NAV... but would miss the rims... is this a good deal? Is teh 3.0 worth more money?

    What does anyone think?

    Cheers

    Mike

    Thats quite tempting, but perhaps u could ask for a little bit of money aswell to compensate the loss of nav n 19's ??
    Also, keep in mind the possible additional insurance cover.
    Has the other vehicle got the necessary service history etc, or is it requiring a big service shortly?? (ask yourself y the person would want to swap!!)
    Good luck m8, whatever u decide!!

    Vehicle : 2007 Vectra

    Well, i approached the guy as its for sale, i asked him what level of interest he had as i was considering putting mine up for sale to buy his.

    Anyway, ive just this minute since seen the wear on drivers seat which is now putting me off! The car is fully service historied, but the interior looks to have more wear than mine! My car was own by a very fussy tidy business man... its like its done 20,000 miles inside!

    So... i would want to put newer seats into it..... hmm, i dunno, dilema, its defo the model i want, perhaps i need to stick it out till the right car comes along, and get mine upfor sale. I'd say mies still worth £5500 with standard sri alloys, what you think?

    Ha ha..... well, almost along the same principles... if i could buy his, swap the bits over, and sell mine for what i bought his......... that would work!

    .......... but i doubt it, going to go and have look round it anyway, see what general condition is! It looks mint in photos, just bar this bolster wear on the drivers seat......
