    Default NEW, Pics & Problems

    Hello,

    First post, picked up a SRi 03 2.2 Vectra yesterday...

    Am warming to the car, of course there are a few issues. My car was hesitating and stuttering,so after reading on here I unplugged the EGR plusand BINGO!!! felt perfect to drive

    My mechanic took it for a drive and we know that it has a few suspension issues, so going onto the ramp Thursday for a proper look.

    Here are a few pics of the car















    Not sure on what plans I have for the future, maybe lowered and some nicer alloys...


    NOW.....

    I am planing on buying a EGR blanking kitand fitting it this week.Will it be okay to drive the car with the EGR unplugged until then... it feels like its causing more damage with it plugged in and have no warning light s sofar....

    fine if unplugged but you will have warning light on,i think preface you can leave plugged in and blank and not get warning as it works on position ,facelift works on throughflow of gas so needs to be mapped out hth
