    Default Lurker saying hello!

    Evening all,

    Loving this site so far so thought I'd say hi!

    Not got a vec yet but in the market! Will get me a C facelift SRi once I get some cash together this summer! So as it stands I'm just a Vectra stalker!

    What is best (looking for looks with economy), the 1.8 petrol or 1.9 diesel? Normally town driving but also possibly a trip from luton to worcestershire couple of times a month?

    1.9 sri ( 150 bhp ) diesel is a good looking car , with performance and economy ..

    and sporty looks with the alloys , front spots , discreet boot lip spoiler , cruise control for your luton to worcestershire trips and 6 speed gear box .

    Hi Gav,

    The 1.9CDTi (Fiat engine) offers good performance and great economy, but as with every make and model has a few flaws, the Dual Mass flywheel, inlet manifold around the swirl flaps, and the egr. These are the main issues surrounding the engine.

    Every car has some issues most of the same ones so it's not unique to the Vauxhall brand, and if push comes to shove every one of these can be done on the drive at home!

    If that is too much for you to think over the 1.8 VVt gives away about 10mpg or so is a sweet engine but doesn't have quite the urgency of the 1.9's torque
