    Default A Hi from snowy Scotland!

    Hi-- Andy here from snowy east Scotland. Took the plunge and put my new 'Black Sapphire' Vectra 1.9cdti 16v on the road on 1st Feb--- am well impressed by the performance of the diesel and comfort of this model over my old style Vectra 2.0 CDX. Oh and the economy--doing 55mpg cany be bad?

    250miles in and so far so good --- cars a 2005 model Elite Sat nav and had 105k on the clock when i got it in december (motorway miles i was told)--full service done by myself since then with timing belt caught just in time! yes it was still the original belt and although not making any weird rattles or noises--the tensioner was doing nowt as the spring had almost lost its tension and one finger was all it took to move it---teeth on belt were starting to 'fray' with lots of brown dust everywhere as it wore away.

    Hope to keep the wheels turning with a bit of help and advice from the forum--- quite a few Scots guys on here as well so all good.

    Cheers Andy

    Just a covering so far but skies heavy---and its that wet cold sticky stuff.

    Kirrie has it worse--- the hills are all white around us and being higher up its always worse off.

    Roll on summer

    Thumbs up Pictures

    Not the most complimentary--- taken as a reminder of the work done---and as a reference to refitting!

    More will follow when weather improves.
