    Default Re-Introduction?

    Hi All,

    I did join the forum in 2007 when I was looking at a Vectra-C, unfortunately then the budget didn't stretch, so ended up with a 51 Vectra-b 2.2 CDX. I couldn't even get a poverty spec. Vectra-C then for the 2.9K I paid for Vectra-B.

    Anyway, moving on .....

    Some absolute <insert dergatory term here> pulled out of a tiny side-street (from my left, so came across me), cut the corner so badly that he smacked my drivers side corner. Then drove off, got his number though and so do the police now .

    Net result, small scratch on side of headlight, rubbing on bumper and wing. Barely any drive from the car and one wheel flopping about on it's own (still upright just no control).

    Quote came through 2K, knew what was happenning next, they wrote it off. To look at there was really no damage, the mechanicals turned out to just be one of the joints popped. BUT this is the price you pay for having XENONS, they bumped the cost up for replacing the whole headlight.

    Though car was in excellent condition and had leather, I valued it at 1700-1800 now looking around, though some seem to be delusional in asking for 2.5-3K for a Vectra B?

    Managed to get the insurance to settle for 2.2K up from their first offer of 1700 AMAZING. Just went out last night and bought an '03 Vectra-C 3.2 SRi (the cop special, SRi with 3.2 dropped in). I paid 1900 for it, usual one owner ex-rozzer with masses of history, an unmarked car in silver.

    Although, NEVER NEVER go to test drive a 3.2 just as the snow starts laying heavy .....

    Usual hole in the middle where the radio was, leads are there but no power currently, good with electrics so I'll look in the next week or two. A single din hole is there with some sort of fascia adaptation but there are bullet holes under neath in the fascia adapter.

    Best seats in any car I have ever sat on, they just hold you in.

    Will have lots of questions but have been intensely reading the forums before and after buying. However, I do know how to use the search on forums! Been on VXON and VVOC for years. Just paid my membership here also.

    Merry Christmas all

    Bri
