    Vehicle : Vectra Estate

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : CDTI 150 (Z19 DTH)

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 100k

    Default New Purchase

    Well this evening I have purchased the following:

    2001 Vectra (B) Sri 150 2.2 Estate

    ....and - I actually loved driving her home..

    She needs a service (full), rear brakes, new rear tyres and a few cosmetic bits, but generally a great car!! Good news is there is NO chain noise from cold or on restart - she is actually a very quiet engine. FVSH from new but due now. Im actually very happy and thats after selling my much loved 944 Porsche.

    Big thanks to Chris (chrisvectra) for coming with me to view - 2 pairs of eyes better than one etc... Top Man you are!

    Cheers Ant

    Then:
    Oil
    Oil Filter
    Air Filter
    Fuel Filter
    Pollen Filter
    Spark Plugs
    Cam Cover gasket (or I might actually try tightening down the corner that has a weap)
    Rear brake kit
    Brake Fluid Change
    Coolent Change
    Check all bushes
    Grease all grease points
    New Rear back box

    .....and go from there
