    Not the same gearbox.

    Astra uses an M32 gearbox.
    Vectra uses F40 gearbox.

    No idea about the Vectra Auto.

    The Vectra uses the M32 box as well I'm just unsure if its the same housing and ratios etc as the Astra VXR, but the M32 is used on the CDTI's and the VXR afaik.

    Was a typo, sorry,

    Vec vxr uses m40
    Astra vxr uses m32
    Vec 2.0t uses m32 but they have differant final drives and ratios iirc

    Vectra 2.0T uses the F40 gearbox.

    A popular modification (if a little expensive to do) is fitting the final drive from the 2.0T F40 into the 2.8T F40.

    It gives the same effect on acceleration as adding about another 30bhp. Sparky VXR has his Vectra F40 modified with the 2.0T final drive and when in standard form (255) it easily out sprinted a standard 280 VXR!

    In answer to the initial post, why change the fluid, just leave it as it is.

    Vectra and Astra both use M32, Vectra mainly uses the F40 though.
