    Default Trying to choose a Vec-c....120 or 150hmmm

    Hey guys.

    Currently driving a Vectra-B 1.8, but have five grand burning a hole in my pocket to buy a Vectra-C. Defo going diesel and defo want an SRi, but can't decide on a 120 or 150. Hence why I've joined the site, cos I figured someone will give me a heads up on what to look out for etc.

    Look forward to chatting with you lot. Awesome site BTW.

    hello and welcome

    if you have the cash , and 5 k should be enough to get a good one ,

    get a 150 everytime ,

    a great combination of power and economy .

    first thing people will tell you about is to check the dual mass flywheel ,

    see if it rattles when you have the clutch half way up .

    some can go on for thousands of miles like this , but some don't ,

    is it a risk you want to take ,

    so if you can get a car that has had the d.m.f. done , all the better .

    i am sure other members will mention other stuff to look out for soon or in the morning when they wake up .

    Thanks, will put it on my list of things to look out for.

    Did a quick search before on here, and people have said that there are problems with 'swirl valves', & 'E.G.R's. How would I tell on a test drive whether these are kaput or not?

    Apologies, I'm no mechanic, so am quite nervous of wasting 5 grand on a lemon.
