    It's driving me crazy,can you please tell me,what's wrong with my car: vectra c 2.0 dti,strange noise over speed bumps,not the small ones but the large(all street) ones.

    It is the same,identical noise like the one in this video i found.

    I agree, front bushes or drop links. Try a little spray oil on them if you wish to help narrow it down, it may help. It could also be the mountings for the radiator pack, although its more likely a bush or link. very common on the Vec C.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    it is 100% arb bushes . i had the same noise and changed all the front end .but stupidly left the arb bushes till last and the noise only stoped when i changed them . it will cost you about £10 from main dealers and you will need a flexi 10mm rachet spanner
