    My elite takes a good few miles but it has usually moved by 10 miles though i would be inclined to check it out did you get it from a garage with a warranty or call your local vx dealer

    with it being just out of its warranty the (independant) garage offers 28days return i know i dont like that idea to... i have allways had cars with warranties ect but i thought with 13k it should be ok its probs just be i might boot it home tonight and see what happens

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^
    It takes a while for the engine to reach temp. However it should be there after 10-15 miles.

    Very common on all VX engines, its the thermostat. For some reason they are expensive for the VVt but very easy to change yourself.
    Oh your in luck, Vauxhall World Parts have them on offer at the moment, they are normally around the £90-£100 mark.
