  • Second Car help required

    Ok... me and hubbie are looking for a cheap but nice second car....

    The budget is around £2k

    Here is a list of cars we are currently looking at, I don't know if anyone is able to help or know someone who has one for sale etc...

    Astra MK3 GSI (ideal yellow as I love that colour!! )

    Veccie GSI (think thats out of budget tho )

    Veccie ST (super touring) V6

    Basically it has to fast and nice looking.... no bad boy maxpower/fastcar wannabe's please!!! PS no small cars either

    Not really wanting anything under a 1.8 or diesel.

    If anyone can help it would be fab

    I think the problem with that age V6 Vauxhalls is that they can be very expensive. I had a 99 Sri V6, loved the car but even with 50K on the clock it was very expensive everytime it went wrong. I suppose you could argue all cars are expensive when they go wrong.

    I guess it all comes down to how many miles you are going to do.

      this car will be sitting for most of the week, its the spare for when I am at work and hubbie needs to do a quick trip into town.. so poss 20miles a week or fewer or at weekends if we want to go our own ways.

        Out of them 3 i`d definately go for the vectra st. If ya can find 1 for 2 grand :?
        Are you only looking for vauxhalls? Cause a Mondeo ST220 are really nice.

          I do like them but the st220 are expensive. The ST200 and ST24 or cheap but look ugly in my opinion.

          I sold my ST v6 last year for 1500 quid so could get one :-)

            With the miles and budget, Astra mk3 GSI I recon would be a good bet. Plenty of happy peeps on the mk3 owners club to give you recommendation also

                Changes to our car search. We now have £2500 to spend and I`m really really looking for a Vectra Supertouring V6.

                I`m a member of VVOC and have asked around there. The more people I ask the better the chances of getting one.



                Cheers

                    Thanks mate but seen that car beforehand. I Really want a V6. The 2.0 litre SUpertouring is just the same as an SRI 130 with white alloys.

                    But thanks for help anyways mate

                            How about an Omega MV6, probably get a good price on one. Smooth comfy and fast, handle fairly well and a good car
