    Default First Message!

    Hi all,

    Thought I'd introduce myself... I'm Dave and currently have a Vectra B GSi.

    I'm looking at getting an 05 plate CDTI SRi, but I'm concerned about the mileage ... its on 180,000!

    Does anyone have an experience with high mileage CDTIs? Specifically the 150?

    The bodywork is about dog-ish, but I can sort that - my concern was the engine lol.

    Cheers

    Dave

    Hi there Welcome to the forum. I would have thought there were loads of motors with a whole lot less miles on the clock. But I suppose it depends on how much you wany to spend on buying one.
    Someone will be able to tell you more about the Diesel engine though.

    Yes worth a buy but no more than 2k make sure it's been serviced and ask for receipts.

    Loads on less mileage.

    You'll be spending a lot on parts - even if it's had the DMF changed sometime in the past, it'll probably need doing again during your ownership.
