    Default Hi everyone

    Hi guys I'm new, I'm picking up a Vectra C 2.2 SRi on Friday, on an 04 plate

    It's got 64k on the clock and I paid £2k... seemed cheap to me assuming everything is ok?

    Anyway I have some n00b questions:

    1) Do I need to do anything about the timing chain oil issue? Any checks I can do?
    2) What suspension do you guys recommend? I want springs/shocks or coilovers for under £300.
    3) Any common faults on these cars?
    4) Is there a 50 post limit on here for buying or selling?

    Cheers

    Welcome.

    Timing Chain depends on the engine you have, is it a 2.2 or is it a 2.2 Direct as mine is the direct on a 04 plate. If its the 2.2 then i believe they do have problems with the timing chain oil but the direct has a new system on it so the should be no issues. Also the direct has a fuel problem as it is high pressure. VX have got a recall out for the fuel pressure regulator on the direct.
