    Default 1.8 VVT DMF or not?

    Hi Everyone
    My first post on here - I have just bought a 58 1.8 vvt with 18k on the clock and I love it -
    I have read about the dreaded dual mass problems with vectra C's but I still can't figure out if mine has a solid flywheel or a DMF !
    Please can someone clarify once and for all?

    Many thanks - great forum by the way

    John
