    Vehicle : Vectra Hatch

    Trim : Design

    Engine : 1.8VVTi 16v

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : circa 28K

    Default Opinions requested!

    Hi Everyone,
    Ok, so still waiting to get the cash - hopefully will find out more in the next few days since parents are literally on the plane back from Mauritius as I type(inheritance due), but found what I think sounds like a decent motor :-

    2007MY on a 56 plate
    1.8VVT Design
    Plus Pack (so 17" wheels and CD70)
    fraction over 36.5k miles
    Star Silver

    Been and had a butchers, not driven yet, but will do soon - minor cosmetic scuffs etc as you would expect, but the stealers reckon they would sort all them out as much as possible!

    up for £6995 with dealer FSH, but I will definitely get that down due to my ummm...contacts shall we say

    sound like the one to go for?

    opinions greatly received!

    Thanks in advance
    Dave

    Thanks - do you know if I should insist they do the SRS remap to the ECU (I think that's what I read about somewhere on here!) before picking it up - if I go for it that is!

    not so worried about the price - my contact got me £750 off my current Vectra B, as well as full service and cambelt change when I bought it!lol

    i was going to get mine remapped but cos its quite a small engine probably wouldnt see much of an increase so i guessed to save my money, if it was getting done in the deal tho jump at the chance

    I don't think it is necessarily a remap as such, most comments I have seen relate to it being a bit sluggish when pulling away, and in some cases this seems to have sorted it...I could be wrong of course! I'm sure someone will correct me!lol despite working for VX I'm not really car technical..more computers for me!lol

    It seems a bit silly to buy a small engine then remap it IMO - just get the 2.0 Turbo to start with and not only will you have more power from the start, the possibilites are huge for more tuning in the future if you wanted it as it's a very flexible engine...

    hey Penfold....as previous post, I don't think it's really a power remap, just to smooth things when pulling away in first as some people have experienced issues. Also, as much as I would like a 2.0T, the insurance would kill me!was a bit of a numpty a couple of years back and got banned, so have to bear that in mind!

    Big Sig - waiting to see what deal i can arrange..unfortunately no pics at the moment...can't even pinch them from the stealers website as they have generic ones on at the moment...as soon as i get it (or a different car, will still be vectra c or signum though!), pics will be posted!
