    Default my 1.9cdti 150 Taxi

    so here goes. brought my car a year ago.
    have racked up 38,000 miles so far in that time.
    my mtec brakes on the front have held up well still on same pads and got 50% left
    after 38k I'm impressed. just had new rear pads new 38k ago. on my 2nd set of front tyes now
    these cheap ones are horrible going to main brand next time.
    egr unplugged 15k ago blanked 5k ago no issues so far.
    new abs ecu module.
    just fitted a 5 piece set of intercooler hoses from dph will update on how they are going.

    slowly managing to get parts on but have to keep the car on the road as much as I can so tough.

    Looks good Leigh - different ball game using one professionally on a day to day basis than just as a family car. Nice to see a Vectra taxi - round here Notts/Derbys they all seemed to have gone over to Skoda's. What sort of service schedule are you on - oil changes,etc

    your right there you spend alot of time trying to predict what will need doing next. down here the cars are quite diverse but i get alot of people ask me what car it is because it looks smart so they say. normally around 20k for oil and filter as it never sits still for very long. currently trying to track down a squealing noise still though. few people think its turbo but im reluctant considering it will be 700+ lol
