Fancied a change.

Postby dave1966 on Sun Jul 08, 2018 9:13 pm

Hi all.

We sold the fronty and bought a 56 plate Vauxhall Vectra 1.9 cdti sri 150 hatchback, as I fancied a change. I won't be leaving fog, as I may end up with another fronty somewhere down the line again.

This is what we have now, sorry it's not a fronty.

Done the same here except that I've still got my toy. My Astra is an 08 1.9 CDTi SRi 150 as well with a couple of mods.
I'm not a boy racer, but bugger me, this thing shifts when required.

I''m no boyracer too (to old) lol. The Vectra is the same blooming quick, I've just got to get a tow bar for the Vectra. I would have kept the frontera, as I liked it but we were constantly spending money on it.

Hope history doesn't repeat itself. Didn't take them long to shut Chrysler down in the Midlands back in the 80s. Believe it was Peugeot back then.

It wouldn't surprise me if they do.

Same.
Both of mine have been collected by Greg over the past few months.
Think he has plans for the V6 andbis using the dti as a run around.

Didn't stay with VX though as was looking at Zafira GSis but couldn't find a good one so ended up getting a mk2 Octavia VRS.
Miles quicker. Better Economy. And can get the same amount of suitcases and bags in the back as the frontera. (20) Only downside is I tried to do the same route as the fronteras last week and ended up bottoming out doing a balancing act on a speed hump

Have you called it a day with off roading or have you got another toy tucked away?
Seen good knowledgeable modding advice from you (which as been very much appreciated) over quite a few years. :thumbup:

I'll be back off roading at some point but not Sure what in.
Haven't been able to use 4wd in vain for a few years due to family commitments so made sense to have a change until the girls get older.
I'll still be about.
I haven't owned a Mitsubishi delica for 6 years but still active on the mdocuk forum. ;-)
Had a fronteras and been on here loner
