    Check the engine is cold and not been run before you get there.

    Get the owner to start the car with you at the rear, it should start with NO smoke.
    If it has a bluey grey smoking exhaust, the Turbo will need replacing.

    As already said, check the service history. Other than that, normal Vectra things. Springs etc.

    another thing is to check that there is no rattling of the chain ..
    as above make sure the oil has regulary been changed
    see if he has been putting in high octane fuel in be nice if he has

    you got any pictures to post up

    the mileage is nice and low

    also got mine on a 55 reg with 40000 on the clock. all i looked at was the usual vectra problems, springs, shock etc...

    There really good engines so shouldn't be any problems if its been looked after properly.

    Whats it up for? as they tend to be good value for money aswell

    just realised you posted the link up....

    Seems very tidy to me, but as soulman said £4000 would be a more realistic price
