    Default Yet another new member.

    Hi I'm Dave from Birmingham.

    Ive just recently in the last week treated myself to an 08 Vectra 1.9CDTi SRI diesel. What a dream to drive !

    Im still getting used to her...although my first real car after a MKIII Ford Cortina was my pride and joy an A reg Cavalier back in the mid eighties. Well it was till my now wife ran her into a skip....slight damage...then ran over a pair of ladders ( which were laying down on there side ) it has to be said, how the hell i still ask myself !!!!

    Still from what Ive looked at so far its a very good and informative site chaps well done.

    Right as far as my new toy goes...had a few niggles which have now been done under warranty...but the most annoying thing was something on the windscreen that when it rained and the wipers were on it smeared the whole screen...i attempted to clean it to no avail..but Vauxhall have now changed the wiper blades, cleaned the screen, and flushed the washer bottle...so we will have to see. Any thoughts on that would be great.

    Only one other question for now...my real worry with motors are cam belts...Ive changed a few over the years on various cars...but have decided to not get involved with this one. My mechanic days are over...hence me buying this hopefully. When should they be changed on this model...shes just clocked 47000 miles and i'm pretty sure its not been done, although serviced regularly.

    Anyway i look forward to contributing now and and then, and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and the best for the new year.

    Dave.

    Welcome to the club. I Had a load of greasy stuff on my windscreen and my Nan always used a large cup of meths or isopranol (alcohol) don't drink either of those and mixed with a large cup of vineger, white or clear is best. shake well put in a spray bottle. Spray on screen wipe well with a coarse cloth and then polish to a brite sparkle. Worked on mine inside and out a treat. In the olden times they used newspaper to polish the glass.
    Don't let the wife know or she will have doing the house out over christmas!
    Happy Vectra-ing
