    Red face Hello

    Just joined the forum - I have an 07' CDTi SRi, owned since June, 46K on the clock. I had fancied one since seeing a friend's signum, however the rear seat set up in the vectra is preferable. A lot of people criticise the quality of the interior fittings in vauxhall's, however I think they are actually very good

    I chose the diesel as I do around 15k a year, it replaced a 2001 mondeo diesel (also a good car). The car is a very good cruiser, however on our annual holiday to Devon at times the car felt a bit underpowered (it is the 120ps version), gradients the mondy took in third were not acceptable in the vectra, I was choosing second instead. Can the 120 be "tuned" for any more power? My first purchase will probably be a K & N air filter.

    I also would'nt mind a set of 19" snowflake alloys, however they are'nt cheap secondhand and an alarming number of them appear to have cracks.Also, I like the look of the twin tailpipes on the petrol engined models, is it possible to fit these to a diesel?

    Overall I am happy with the car - I really wanted the 150 PS version but for what I got my car for I simply could'nt turn it down.

    hi and welcome mate
    As you said an alarming amount of snowflakes have cracks in so me personally that put me off them but each to there own as far as the engine am sure it must be able to be tuned but am no expert few lads on here who will tell you if you can or cant and the tailpipes yes you can get them for diesels i may be wrong but am sure its the 3.2 v6 has them aswell dont think the petrol diesel thing makes much difference just the baffles in the back box so noise really but dont quote me on it
