    New car non astra

    Well toyed with Clio, yaris, astra coupe.
    Went to view both a clio 172 and a yrais t sport but they were going to be too small, and looked at an astra coupe but it hadnt been looked after So ended up buying what i wanted last year before i bought the Astra, A Vectra Sri,
    A strange choice some might say but with my job and thinking of the future its the best choice for me, nice sporty looks but plenty of room for work stuff and the family when it arrives
    So splashed out £5k on a 70k f/h lots of reciepts mint condition 03 plate Rep car
    Heres a pic of the model which mine is identical too.

    I have opted for the 1.8 petrol, for £5k i got 12 months mot 6 months tax 3 months warranty full history and not a blemish on the car.

    I wouldnt of minded a diesel but they were more than i wanted to part with.

    Kev yours looks very nice on the 19" snowflakes, i have already joined Vectra c

    Cheers for the positive response

    yeah they are rep cars, but i see that a aplus point, im not gonna ttract any attention in car parks for thieves, parts and repairs are common,

    Downside is they depreciate ALOT But itll be staying for a few years at least.

    Loved them since i saw one a few years ago now and said id have one, one day and here it is

    Quite the opposite, infact you'll need to remember which of the sea of silver Vectra C's it is.

    Seems like a decent enough price.
