    Does a 1.8VVT have a fast ticking/tapping sound when the engine is ticking over??
    It's not that loud but noticeable. Mileage is 31K.
    Had a look at an 07 Vectra in Pomegranite red for sale today.

    Ps, how's the cats Danny?

    ive just got 300 miles from £50 of petrol and mines a 2.2direct, which i think is good, so i guess a 1.8 would be even better hope this gives you some idea

    Thanks for the info guys. It did sound sweet, and it was cold and had not been run.

    I should have also asked what is the service interval??
    Car I saw has 31K miles and was last serviced (stamp in book) at 13K miles over 2 years ago.
    Thanks

    Mine ticks as well so guess its a 'feature'. Mines good on fuel and has enough power for everyday driving. Could do with a bit more at times but hey ho.
