    Default Can you get a 2006 `06` plate pre facelift model ??

    Good evening all, firstly let me apologise if my title seems a bit dumb but i have done a bit of searching and cant seem to find what i'm looking for.

    Iv'e been offered a 2006 `06` plate 2.2 sri, its a pre facelift model but i thought the latest you would get one would be on an `05` plate as the new facelift was readliy available by `55` if that makes sense ??

    Am i right in my thinking or could it just be stock that may have lay in a compound before being sold ???

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Just old stock that's all. Very rare though but they do exist.
    Insignia VX-Line Nav CDTI 170.

    There may be a few about that were held unregistered and then registered and sold once the new stock of facelifts became available..... but I would imagine it will be a very low number countrywide.

    Yeah, ex-police models and old stock. Nothing to be worried about mate - just a very rare model...

    Oh, just another quick question if you can, other than checking the service records and all other basics when looking at the car is there anything that i should be looking out for ?, its done 70k and appears to be very clean etc but i'm not particularly clued up when it comes to buying motors, its a timing chain on the 2.2 isnt it ? should it have been changed by now or could it be due ??

    Many thanks again for taking the time to answer my questions

    yes it's a chain on the 2.2i - if it is out of any cover for warranty I would have it looked at,.. I think they're good for over 100k?.. someone will know better than me

    suppose to be 100k but if they is any noise from that area when car is running ? budget for a new chain to be safe , it should be a direct model , right ?
