  • What would you consider...

    if you need to replace the bus? I looked at quite a few different cars and 4x4 before I cam across my bus.

    I haven't had my 3rd row seats up since I picked the bus up in January. Basically all I need is a car with big boot, so, I would consider an insignia, vxr touring of course!

    However, if I wanna get another people carrier, what is the next best people carrier out there?

    Cheers.

    PS I am not selling, just curious.

    I looked at a Nissan Pathfinder before my Bus, good spec looks good 7 seats if needed, but i had just got rid of my jeep cherokee diesal and the fuel cost on a 4x4 is a lot worse even than the bus.
    so i would say Honda frv , but i dont think i could be happy as i am with my bus in any thing else ( i still look at it out the window before bed.).

      Test drove the FRV too, it was a good drive but it was a bit pricey, also, didn't like the salesmen there, lol.

        Just hope they do a vxr on the new one

          If I win the lotto, the bus would still be in my fleet, lol.

            So would mine, but it wouldn't stay standard for very long. Do they do a stage 10?

              Without a doubt, I will put a vxr8 engine into the bus in I win the lotto, lol. As they say, anything is possible if money and time is available, I am sure I will have both if I win the jackpot, lol.

                LOL silver hmmm now that would be fun a LS3 6.2 bus he he..........
                No room for 7 seats mate

                But if had to trade the bus plus keep the other one only 3 vehicles come to mind another VXR8, Jag XFR or a Insignia VXR ( slightly tuned by courts if poss) blow the kids they can get public transport

                  I went from a Zaf VXR to a FRV and then back to a VXR again, in about 8 months lol. The FRV is a very nice car. We had the EX 2.2 oil burner, It was lovely, but it's just not a VXR

                  The only other one that I looked at is the S-max, either the 2.5 turbo or the 2.2 diesel. Both are quick cars, the 2.5 being only 0.1 sec behind the VXR to 60. But I could'nt find one in the spec that I wanted, as I did'nt plan to buy new, glad really, as I ended up with the VXR again and a new one at that

                          The 2.5 titanium Smax would be the only othe contender for me, but still not a patch on the bus tbh ... I looked at an S3 5 door when I got the bus as I don`t need the extra seats either, just the space. The S3 was a better choice, but there were none 2nd hand around so kicking the *** of 30k wasn`t for me !! Still in the high 20`s for a year old one so depreciation aint a bad thing with them !
