    a used gearbox from anywhere is a gamble, then a DMF and clutch kit and probably a must concentric slave cylinder replacement is all big bucks for a car thats not really worth much now...... these cars make me i'll..... been there, thought about it..... then sold it..... make the right choice.... mines definitely was..... it was a 55 2.0t design signum with only 80k, and add up all the other faults, a/c still working?, power steering still working?..... it's a sad reflection of a modern vauxhall.......

    I think he's saying the gearbox was fine in the end, only the DMF was faulty.
