    Dmf duel mass flywheel

    I've had mine since July last year and all that gone was the alternator IMO they are reasonable cars quite reliable and go like stink

    Most things can be seen on test drive any nicks bangs
    Rattle from flywheel when lift clutch slowly or engine change sound

    Ok appreciate the help getting close to selling my bus so want to make sure i dont get a duff replacement as my bus is mint both body and mechanically. Just need better economy

    Found a nice silver vectra c on the bay for under £2k high mileage full service history though but ideally wanting a signum

    Is there much of a difference between the 1.9cdti and the 2.0 dti and whats the suitable engine modifications between the two?

    I believe the cdti is a more powerfull engine and quieter a lot
    I've not had a dti so can't really say but yesterday I went with ma mate to buy a vectra cdti 120 on a 55 had 90k on clock we got it for 2300 it was under power think was the reason for sale but bit tape later was running like a dream split vacuum hose lol

    Edit what I do know is the 2.0dti is very under powerd if u want a dti as a option consider the 2.2
    Plus remap a cdti 150 ul be close to 200bhp

    Yeah i dont mind picking up something cheap and having options to tune and get running sweet. My ideal is the signum for the extra boot space but dont want to go as far as having the veccy estate.

    Just whether I go for the pre face lift or not of which there are more bargains to be had with
