    The beeb is just saying that the boot is ready to open. It wont actually release the latch. You have to go to the boot and prees the boot latch and open it. The boot locks after certain time (30 secs I think) so even if the car is unlocked with the engine running the boot will remain locked until either the boot button is pressed on the fob or on the door controls.

    I forget about it sometimes so when I drop the wife off at work and she runs around to the boot she cant open it. She taps on the window to tell me to press the boot button. As soon as I press it I hear the beep and the wife presses the latch and opens the boot. Its to stop people nicking stuff out of your boot at traffic lights I guess.

    Oh and welcome to the 2.2dti club :-) Not a bad engine and pretty easy to work on when things go wrong.

    The two common things you may find go wrong in the engine bay are Vacuum pipe rubbers cracking which can easily and cheaply be replaced with silicone ones (See my thread here http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=115759 ) and also the inter cooler hoses are prone to splitting due to vauxhall using crap materials. They can be replaced with silicone ones from ebay for £60 each off ebay or make your own like I did for about £20-30. See my thread about it here http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=116528
