    Default New user, Just ordered new car

    Hi All,

    Just ordered new Vectra as my first ever company car.
    Here's my Spec

    Vectra Design 1.9 CDTI 150
    Black Sapphire
    IDS+
    ESP+
    AFL
    18inch 11 spoke wheels (including sports suspension, i hope)
    Front and rear parking sensors. (Went for this as my outgoing car is a Mini Cooper S, so not used to bigger cars!!)

    I have a couple of questions. I've specced the IDS+, does it make much difference to the handling?

    Also, does the CDC40 have an input, i'd like to be able to plug in my ipod.

    Cheers in advance
    Russ

    to the site !!

    Yeah ... Sure does! Test it then you get the car .... do elktests with and without the sportmode activated .... and you will feel thats a big diff.
    Its much more stable in sportmode.

    ( Dont know how big the diff is between a IDS+ car in normal mode and one without, but there should be some )

    + you get the change in throttlerespons and steering.
    ( and if its a automatic it will shift gears later )

    Thanks Techwolf.
    Sounds good, I'm used to flinging my Mini round bends so I was hoping it would be good.

    Sure is! In sportmode it feels like a much smaller car ... more of a GTI
    Then i first tested the diff I just starded laughing and got a big smile on my face ... guess

    I've read that the 18 inch 11 spoke wheels come with sports suspension (in the UK anyway) , is the IDS+ still worth it or does it stiffen things up more than the sports suspension already does?

    True ... The 18" and 19" comes with sportsuspension. The same over here.
    Sure does ... Ive got sportsuspension as I got a GTS and there a big diff.

    You are a handy person to know! I was going to go for an SRi, but you can't have rain sensing wipers and auto dimming mirror with an SRi over here apparently! So went for the Vectra Design and added the sporty options to make it more like the SRi.

    Thanks! Theres a lot of us here

    Ok. The GTS was my only option since i wanted the sportsuspension & sportseats with half leather. And theres no prob. getting rain sensor and a.d mirror with it over here.
