    Yep mate same engine as the NET, and I believe it has the larger turbo across the range, the same as the Vec facelift one. Pretty bullit proof engine, but as said its a ve tra under the skin so will have the same weak points.

    It has a slightly different chassis than the saloon, as it has extra bracing underneath.

    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    Year : 2006

    Default

    As said same things as a vec with the exception of the rag top. If I remember rightly the convertibles were built in austria though by steyr magna for saab. Plenty of parts available as the running gear and engines are the same as vx.

    It is a bit of a girls car imho but plenty of fellas drive them.
    My old Signum, the animal; she now rests in pieces in several other members cars.. https://www.vectra-c.com/forum/garag...vehicle&id=200
    The wifes vec show car, started as a standard daily driver and ended up like this. https://www.vectra-c.com/forum/garag...vehicle&id=709
