Full thread on ownership with some very recent pics as follows:

This was pre-owned by Kev (c20letboy) so its been well looked after, rear pads and brake fluid change was carried out just before I picked it up (bless him).

Paintwork is average for a car of this age, stone chips on the front lower part pf the bumper has taken it down to the paint below (front bumper has been replaced at some stage), some surface scratches which show only really because of the car's colour. Rust - slight bubbling at the bottom of the passenger side arch, and light bubbling on the rear doors, nothing to write home about.

It will have the standard stereo put back in when sold - sadly I don't have the code for it.

Looking for as close to 1k as possible, as we need to by Deb a replacement. I must stress that I love this car to bits, but she saw the 306 and decided that she's gone off the Vectra. This is a thrill to drive, and pulls like a train, to be honest if I don't get the money I'm looking for then I'll keep hold of it and face the abuse from the wife.

We are open to an exchange but would really be looking for like for like with as little cash exchanged in the deal as possible. She won't go for a cav, seeing as we already have a project cav on the driveway, but if anyone has some suggestions for an exchange of a mid sized car we're open to suggestions.

Tel: 07914 835484, email, or PM

Trav, she'd murder me if I got another cav. If it was just down to me then I'd consider, but as she casts the deciding vote, I'll have to run it all past her first. PM me some details, the least I could do is ask her bud.

Pug 306 dont do it mate they are money pits.
The wife had 1 not long ago and it cost me shed loads in bits and they are not nice to work on.
She had it for 2 1/2 years and we lost nearly 3 grand on the value and spent nearly £1500.00 on it and i did most of the work myself.
In the time we owned it it had starter motor, immobaliser problems, rear suspension bushes, rear shocks, rear subframe mounts, battery, wheel bearings, radiator. And thats without the electrical problems with the windows.
It was only 6 years old when we got it as well. Ok on fuel as it was turbo diesel. They also have a very poor turning circle and parking can be fun in the supermarkets.

Right - deal arranged. Picking up an N plate Escort ghia x next week. This thing is fully loaded.

Now if I can only convince her that I need a cav GSi to resore the balance.
