Hi All

 

Does anyone know this car? I'm possibly going to have a look at it this week but it's a long trek (I don't mind travelling for the right car).

There is no reg plate showing so may be a long shot but any comments are seriously appreciated.

All the Best

The rear angle is difficult to judge, but by the looks the vx220 and turbo logo are to high, the space between vx and 220 seems to big and the vauxhall logo seems to low.

With debadging being very popular it does not have to mean a thing, but just that you know.

 

If a full respray has been done, the internal stickers on the sill are probably gone.

Something to look out for.

If you are not buying on the spot, take lots of pictures of every detail so we can get a better idea

as the existing ones have been taken with a potato.

Something that is very difficult to hide when painting the rear, is the paintlines where the mesh meets the bodywork.

Put your nose up the mesh near the exhaust, and on the boot lid and have a good look.

 

For the rest it looks brand spanking new. :wub:

Agreed. It would need to be factory fresh - particularly in today’s subdued market.
