    Default Goodbye to my vec?

    Hi

    Well after 3 years of my Vec 2.0t xp is leaving me. It has never missed a beat in those three years and apart from tyres and servicing has not been any problem. It still looks as good as the day i had it and still draws admiring glances.
    The bad news is that due to a car policy at work Vauxhall are no more so my dreams of an Insigina are smashed with the 1st Sept arrival of a Volvo S40
    I have trying to pursuade my wife to take by the the vec but wont part from her sporthatch astra. They want roughly £6.5k for it which i think is a bit expensive but im not sure?
    Finally for what its worth forget diesel (the fuel of the devil), if you havnt got one get a 2.0t, its smooth to drive, quick, refined, and most importantly doesnt put out black smoke every time you press the go pedal.LOL

    Cheers

    John

    Not sure about the Vulva S40 never driven one before, its quite a good spec (RDesign SE), and a return to diesel im afraid. People do ask me when the string back gloves and flatcap arrive LOL.

    No opt out from the scheme. i did try but as part of "our" vision to reduce carbon emmisions they want to control what we drive and limit us to 160 gm. Im like you if i drive it every day then its got to be good, but no choice really.
