    Vehicle : Vectra C Facelift

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : CDTi 150

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 71000

    Default

    First try swapping your tyres front to the back & see if that cures it as the Vectra seems prone to droning from the rear tyres

    I'm just getting a wheel bearing replaced front drivers side from chassis number 51000001 onwards with IDS, but i don't have IDS as far as i know ?, the garage i use got sent the early one so I'm still droning as the early one wouldn't fit

    Here's some info from the handbook

    Interactive Driving System-plus (IDS-plus) with Continuous
    Damping Control (CDC)
    D5. The Interactive Driving System (IDS-plus) chassis offers the
    driver an even more sporting driving experience, thanks mainly to the
    electronic control of the suspension. Pressing the Sport switch activates
    the CDC function – CDC monitors the roll, pitch and yaw of the car, and
    changes the rate of damping on each wheel to optimise the handling,
    effectively stiffening the suspension – but selectively. This means the
    vehicle will exhibit a reduced rate of roll and pitch, making it more
    responsive during direction changes and more settled during the
    braking/turn-in/acceleration transition when cornering. CDC is a
    major breakthrough in the segment.
    Sport switch
    D5. The functions of the Sport switch aren't limited to suspension
    control. When activated, it also affects the steering and accelerator
    pedal. The drive by wire throttle is altered electronically, leading to
    a sharper engine response and crisper acceleration, while the map
    of the power assisted steering is also adjusted, giving the driver a
    D5 more positive initial turn-in on corner-entry.
    Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Cornering Brake
    Control (CBC)
    D7. Cornering brake control makes the car easier to control in
    extreme situations, particularly when braking sharply on a bend. It is
    particularly effective when carrying out emergency procedures, such
    as avoiding a child’s ball that’s rolled out from the kerb. The system
    works by sensing the different rotational speeds of the individual road
    wheels and co-ordinating the level of braking pressure applied to each
    wheel. CBC is an integral part of New Vectra and New Signum’s
    comprehensive ABS.
    Emergency Brake Assist (EBA)
    D6. Emergency brake assist detects the urgency with which the
    brake pedal is pressed and rapidly increases the pressure to the
    maximum the system can provide, shortening stopping distances.
    It also enhances pedal feel.
    Electronic Stability Programme-plus (ESP-plus)
    D1. ESP-plus provides enhanced yaw compensation during
    understeer or oversteer. The system works by monitoring the
    front and rear of the car, comparing their respective directions
    of travel going in to the bend with the input received through the
    steering wheel. If the vehicle starts to slide, it applies corrective
    braking to the appropriate wheel, or wheels, compensating for
    the slide and helping you regain control more rapidly.
    Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL)
    Adaptive Forward Lighting is a sophisticated new lighting system
    that allows drivers to see around corners and see further ahead
    at motorway speeds. This optional bi-xenon system employs two
    main functions:
