    The recommended oil for all Vectra-C engines is 5w/30 fully synth long life.

    Re: oil filter, not sure. Someone else will hopefully be along shortly to advise.....

    GO TO A VAUXHALL DEALER, they seem to be having a sale on oil/filters, I got 5ltr long life fully synth, plus filter, plus sump plug seal for 21 quid, filter is part number,VOF93 93156954, you will need a good torx T45 bit ( I use a halfords professional half inch driver, where the bit goes give it a good clean, eg, spray with WD, the bit goes well in, also get a spin off for the oil filter.
