    Question vectra 3.2 gsi - performance bargain or money pit

    Howdo all. I've had several vectra b v6s in the past, sri, gsi and cdx, I love V6s (had Alfa 156 and ZS180 too) and as my work drive is short these days I fancy getting another one.

    I've been noticing that the Vectra c 3.2 GSI is looking like a bargain, 53/04 plates with around 65/75k on the clock for 2 to 2 and 1/2 grand, which is nothing. Quick and lots of kit as standard. Same with the 3.2 Signums.

    So are they worth looking at? I've been doing some reading and it seems they come with weak springs, which isn't a biggie, and can have dodgy electrics, but I haven't found much else wrong with them. Is there anything else big that can go wrong? I'd want one with fsh and cambelt change of course, but would I always be wishing I'd saved up a few more grand for a VXR? Did the 3.2 come with satnav, if not can I fit the later system in?

    Cheers all.

    Cheers. I'm not too worried about fuel as I only do about 8k a year these days. I'd do a bit of minor tuning - decent cold air IK, stainless exhaust, sports cat if I can find one, then see if there are any decent tuners left that could do me a custom remap.

    I have had a 3.2 siggy for 5 years now, and apart from usual wear and tear, servicing, I have had no problems. Would I change it?
    NO CHANCE.
