      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A 4 year old car which cost £30,000 new, and cost £6,000 now! The Elite is the one to have, everything is that little bit more luxurious and stylish, from the front bumper/grille design, wheels and interior, plus the extras such as HID gas-discharge headlamps, BOSE sound system, side airbags, climate control, leather etc... The Car is good looking with the 225/55 VR16 5 spoke star wheels, pale grey leather, tasteful walnut effect panel. To drive the car is amazing, despite being rwd, there is no tendancy to oversteer on wet bends, it will zoom into corners effortlessly without excess roll, abd straigten up so accurately, no steering corrections ever seem to be needed. The BMW six cylinder tubo intercooled engine is phenominal, coupled to the 4 speed auto which feels like a 6 speed due to lockup on 3rd and 4th. The same auto is used in the Isuzi Trooper and BMW Z3 among others, it's smooth, but make sure you have the "sealed for life" oil replaced after 100,000 miles, it will cost £140 at the dealer as it needs special oil and filters/seals, but its worth it for insurance against catasrophe. The car is easy for the DIYer to work on, due to it's spaciously laid out RWD configuration. Vauxhall Masterfit major service is only £125 and front brake pad change £39, who can complain. I get 28mpg driving spiritedly around town, and 38mpg combined, and 50mpg when cruising on cruise control on a long run. It can also be run on <37p/litre cooking oil if you have a £300 conversion fuel heater.
