    Shame mate as everything ticked the boxes at the time, now nightmares happening, trade it for a cdti, they get slated for being unreliable aswell, done 5.5k in mines and not had 1 hastle (touch hairy wood)

    Hope u get it sorted.

    Your certainly one of the few that has had issues with the 2.0 turbo. Big Davie used to owe an edition 100 and at best he got 23mpg along with a host of faults, whereas I have owned mine for coming up for 5 years and its been faultless..

    Hopefully you get it sorted..

    Trouble is when you mapp and increase engine out put it will find faults in the car.

    For exapmle when you had it mapped you reported boost sensor issues, I fortunately have not had those.

    My CAT was clogged when I got it but a good Italian tune up and a bottle of cataclean and had no issues at all since. Infect when I had the exhaust done I was told it was in great nick and looked at the thing myself, which is why I did not replace it with the sport CAT.

    I am sure however once the niggles are fixed you will love it.

    Mine cost me £600 for turbo technics and labour a month after warranty ran out lol.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Just bad luck mate, I feel for you. I had an Edition100 2.0T for four and a half years and it was never off the road.

    Remapping the engine and ragging it at will (when the engine was warm/warmish) produced no problems whatsoever.

    As it was a limited edition, apart from the remap and the airbox mod, a plain Irmy grille, and bigger front brakes, I kept it absolutely standard. Maybe that helped it in the reliability department.
