    Vehicle : Vectra Estate

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : CDTI 150 (Z19 DTH)

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 100k

    Default MY2006 55-Plate Vectra CDTI 150 Estate Life

    Thought I should start one of these
    __________________________________________________ _________

    Purchased on the 12th April 2012 and this is how it looked as I bought it:







    On inspection this is what I found:
    New inlet - this actually looked virtually brand new with zero much on the swirl tops and the metal a very clean colour.
    New EGR - looks like it was done with inlet
    New Boost Sensor - looks like it was done with inlet
    New Clutch - Gear change is fantastic.. Clutch very light, and no DMF knock at all.. Defo been changed as with the mileage the car has done it would certainly not feel or sound like that!
    Cambelt + Water pump changed less than 10K ago according to the sticker on the slam panel (will inspect this before believing it)
    Rear Arms have been changed pretty recent
    Front brakes pretty new
    Seats feel very firm. Impressed actually as I though tthe 'life' spec seats would not be very supportive compaired to our Vec SRi but was plesently supprised. Good bottom and lumber support.
    Suspension is a lot firmer that I thought again from a life model. I was expecting it to be sloppy but no.. Upon inspection the front shocks and springs look new - certainly like they have been replaced recently. The front shocks still have the Sachs/GM label on them and I could read it all without needing to clean anything.. Springs again were very clean.

    It will need:
    Potential cam belt and w/pump if I am not convinced when I remove cam belt cover
    Front drop links as they are making a knocking noise and are extremely sloppy
    The CD30 and screen are not paired - all works but the 'Display Safe' is on the display - this will be swapped for a CDC40 Opra or a CD70 Navi
    Due a full service
    Needs new rear brakes (discs and pads)
    Needs a new thermostat as it doesnt warm up correctly

    Let the progress begin!

    Inspect Cam belt

    Upon Service Inspection - also found:
    Turbo looks new ...
    Front pipe/cat/DPF are NEW
    Glow plugs are new
    Cam belt had obviously been changed as the belt itself was in VGC and I could read the writting on the belt. Also the timing marks are fresh it seems so thats a bonus
