    Previously owned (technically still do until the buyer picks it up) a 1998 Vectra SRI 140 but felt the need for something a little newer, more refined and reliable :)

    After much deliberation and test drives of some 6 or so cars I settled for a 2002 Lexus IS200 SE from a local Japanese specialist dealer, which I collected after work yesterday :D
    'Granite sky' silver, 38k, full lexus service history, one previous owner and best of all, the standard SE gubbins (electrically adjustable & heated leather seats, climate control, 17" alloy wheels etc etc etc).

    Am very happy, will try and get some photos tonight if it is not chucking it down with rain again :rolleyes:

    (waits for the BMW/mondeo gang onslaught ;) )

    Woohoo, nice to see you got rid of the vectra, do like the IS200 but for the cash it wouldn't be my choice :)

    I love the IS200, if I ever get a proper job where my car isn't used as a van I'd definately consider one.

    ......oh and pics!!
