    Default Should I, Shouldn't I?

    Current scenario is basically this.

    I currently own a 2007 (56) Vectra 1.8i VVT Exclusiv in Silver with 22k on the clock. Lovely car, but I miss the diesel punch of my old Mondeo TDCi. I really fancy another Diesel, and i've always wanted an SRi (by rights I should have bought one instead of the Exclusiv)

    Now, i've been offered a 2008 (57) Vectra SRi 1.9 CDTi 150 for 8k with 30k on the clock in Pomegranite Red. Drives sweet, full history etc...

    Question is, is it worth it? The SRi pulls extremely well and it was very enjoyable to drive and also nicer to look at at but with worries over DMFs, Swirl Pots etc...

    It's a Network Q car btw...

    Cheers

    John

    Worked out with the finance and the slightly extra on the insurance it will be 80quid a month more than i'm forking out at the moment.

    I do around 2k miles a month, do you reckon i'd soon save that 80quid in fuel?

    How on earth can it be an extra 960 quid a year on insurance...?

    Edit: that's inclusive of all the other costs I see How much will it cost you to change...?

    I reckon the extra shouldn't be a problem, depending on what type of miles you do, i.e urban or mixed the 150 will return a safe extra 10 miles per gallon in town and anything up to 20 extra on the motorway, the car is under warranty for 18 mths, and you can then get an extention for year 4 and 5 depending on how reliable it's been, in that colour as well I'd be getting my pen out right now, and remember to ask for mats and a full tank in true Littlewood fashion.
