    Same 2.2 engine they put in the Vec C for a bit. All I can say is mine's still going strong on nigh on 200,000 miles. Nothing to worry about just keep it well serviced!

    well thats me bought it.

    clutch is stiff and the gear stick has a bit of wobble but no clutch slip or anythin..

    the brakes are spongy but he said they have just been replaced, i advised him if it doesnt fix its self i want it sorted.

    few scuffs etc but drives nice.

    full service history and getting serviced ( oil, oil filter and fuel filter at my request ) before i get it and book stamped.

    103k miles, metalic blue estate,

    http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classifi...ge/1?logcode=p

    getting it for £1700.

    need to contact angel tuning for the remap and get the CAT and middle box taken out, then air filter sorted as i noticed the turbo is right at the top!

    but apart from that, all seems well!

    I've just picked up a Y reg 2.2 DTi CDX to replace my Signum as a runabout - spent the last couple of days changing all the discs and pads and giving it a service. Odometer showing 95K but having seen the old MoT's online I know it's at least 200K - something I should've checked before I bought it, but oh well...

    Much prefer the interior design of the Vec B's, lots of standard equipment not found on the C's either...

    Well I got the v5 ref number and checked it all online before I went to see it. . But I'm sure she will not give me much grief. And hopefully will be pretty quick once mapped! And the above changed.
