    Default Got it (finally!)

    Collected my new (to me) Veccy at lunchtime today

    I'm well pleased with it. Did have a couple of scuffs which i pointed out to them and they said that they will send somebody up next week to do smart repairs to it, at my place of work (also a garage)

    I'm not really happy with having smart repair done as i have seen the results, working in the motor trade for the past 11 years but i think you have to give them a chance to make a decent repair. If its not done to a standard i'm happy with then i will get our bodyshop to do it and send them the bill.

    Got to get used to the indicators but other than that, this car rocks

    Well done mate... enjoy it.

    If the smart repairs are not good enough, you should at least give them the chance to sort it themselves before just sending them a bill..... don't wanna get off to a bad start with the dealers!!!

    Its a 1.8 SXi 2005/05 plate with 16k on the clock, finished in Lightning Silver (loving it!)

    I suppose it would be a silly idea to get our bodyshop to paint it and send them the bill, its just i know that the people who do their bodywork aren't all that. Who knows, the smart repair may be good enough so i should give them the benefit of the doubt.

    And i'm not worried about upsetting them, i worked for them for three years as a partsman and know most of them down their. They even asked me if i wanted to join their used car sales team! (seriously thinking about that!)

    Thanks guys. I'm well pleased with the car so far. Just getting used to pulling away without either spinning the wheels or bogging the engine down

    I feel a bit inadequate round here, am i the only member with a 1.8 SXi?

    Not at all matey, fine motor you have there Stick sum photos of it in the gallery till we get a look. Your car should be visually identical to the SRI bar the lack of 17" alloys & badges ! The SRI 17's would be a good mod for you, they usually go for around £350 on here

    Cheers mate, the car does look fantastic!

    Pics will come once i have done what i promised, taken the kids down the park.

    I'm not really a fan of the SRi 17's, but i do fancy some TSW pace in 18 or 19's. Can 19's be fitted with a 35mm drop and no arch work?
