    Default Found my car on Autotrader!

    After putting it up for sale on here:

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=92232

    ...and eventually trading it in for 3 grand to a dealership in Southampton to get my Signum, I kept an eye on their website to see if they would bother selling it or just palm it off to auction...

    1 month later, and here it is on Autotrader for 4500 squid...

    Looking quite clean, although someone appears to have poured some tyre-shine over the engine...

    Mods have been left in place, including Signum chrome fog surrounds, headlight washers that aren't connected to anything, and the GSI alloys...



    Edit: Just read this bit...

    FINISHED IN METALLIC MIDNIGHT BLUE COMPLIMENTED WITH CONTRASTING INTERIOR

    ...for contrasting, read 'grey', like every other SRi...

    Is that not a bit steep, £4500? Mind you, has FSH, and sat nav! Gotta love some of the vocabulary used describing a vehicle!

    It's a cracking motor, didn't let me down once in 30K miles... I did plenty of oil changes, and mechanically it's sound - perfect for motorway mile-munching...

    If you go to their website there's more pictures, just don't ask about the stain on the rear bench...

    I got my LS for £2k, got it a bit cheap though, came in as a partex at a posh garage over the road, 44k miles, 2 month MOT but no tax. Mind you it's an SRI, and like you said, you've looked after it, besides the suspicious stain on the back seat
