    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Exclusiv

    Engine : CDTI 120

    Year : 2006

    Default New Norfolk Boy!

    Hello,

    Dereham fella here who just purchased a Vectra Cdti 120 2006. Perhaps a bit unusual for a 21 year old, but then again this is my 9th car....

    Went all the way to High Wycombe for it purely because it was a 1 owner vehicle, and that 1 owner was Vauxhall! F/S/H etc and wanted something that would hopefully be reliable.

    There's a couple of things need doing, rear ARB bushes or shocks (not sure which, but they're not too bad yet). Needs a new thermostat too, any idea how much Thurlow Nunn would charge for this? I have a bad history with doing Thermostats myself so it's one job i try to leave to others.

    I work in IT in Norwich and do quite alot of driving. A couple cars ago i had a an Astra Bertone Coupe 2.2 which was quite nice, but quite thirsty too.

    Looking to get the Vectra re-mapped in the next couple of months, or buy one of the DTUK boxes which seem to get raving reviews and their estimated 120-170bhp is pretty good and backed up by some rolling roads on the forums.

    Hopefully i'll keep this car longer than 3-4 months (my average), i'm determined to keep it for more than a year, i spend too much on buying cars.

    I'm also 21, owned 12 cars now and recently bought a 2006 Vec CDTi, nothing unusual with that!

    Do you know Jordan (JJ0063)? He lives near you with an Ultra blue Vectra SRi lol.....

    The thermostat is £57 from Vauxhall (Marshall at Ipswich but I doubt Thurlow Nunn would be different) as I done mine last week, plus you'll need some coolant too. About a fiver per litre of concentrated Vaux stuff from dealer, I needed two litres.
