  • Quick guessing game

    With child No.2 on the way I have been toying with the idea of trading in the Beast, i was THE best car while i lived on the continent, but not so practical in the UK.


    I went to the local dealers today to ask about a swap with a 150ps diesel Zaffy..The Vec is 18 months old, 14,000 miles and even the dealer said A1 condition. Anyone want to have a guess at the offered trade-in value....?

        TBH they haven't offered me a final value yet, they are waiting on advice from underwriters (or is that undertakers) but he told me that they would be putting it on the forecourt at £12,995. I'm execting an initial offer tomorrow of 9,500.....

                this seems like a really strange post to me. You have 1 kiddie and another on the way. You have a nice big 5 seat 4 door car and worry it isnt big enough. Do you take the cot assembled everywhere you go.....

                We have 2, 4 or 6 kids all the time and the Astra does fine with 2 including twin buggy. Zafira is obviously used for all other times. Even of we have 3 kids or misses and 4 kids only the Astra is big enough

                To change to a stinky, child killing bus seems such the wrong thing to do

                  Not at all worried about space, the Beast has toured the continent fully loaded on many occasions.
                  What i AM worried about is massive road tax, huge fuel costs, unrealistic insurance payments and the fact i have been stopped by traffic police three times in the six weeks since we moved back to the UK.

                  I am caught in the pension trap for the next three years, but as soon as the money is in the bank i will be leaving these shores for good. Till then it is all about spending less money...

                    Quick update

                    I won't be speaking with Vauxhall anymore, negotiations broke down at the initial trade-in valuation. They will only give me £8000...ho hum.....guess i will just have to put up with the extra expense for a few years
