    Thumbs down 3.0 CDTi Turbo problem (s)

    Alright everybody?
    Where do I start, I bought my 3.0CDTi V6 Elite Estate missile last year (05 plate) and since then it has had
    a complete set of tyres on a recall,
    a new amplifier for the DAB radio,
    the n/s door painted 3 times due to idiot mechanics,
    the rear bumper painted (same mechanic?)
    a boost pressure sensor, an air flow meter, and a new turbo all because the mechanics didn't know what was wrong after fitting the first 2 and the problem with the car going in to safe mode was still there,
    and all this from the local Vauxhall dealer.
    Good eh !
    anyway all seems well now and it's back to it's missile state once again and I'm about to purchase a go faster tuning box for it to enhance it's "drivability" officer, any advice on which one to buy?

    do some searches, there is a ton of information available.

    if you intend on keeping the car a good long while maybe consider a remap, it costs around the same as some of the top boxes

    Hi and welcome to the site..

    after driving the remapped 3ltr D, i'd go down that route rather than a tuning box..

    Default Service for life

    Forgot to mention,
    I have free servicing for life (however long I own the car) !
    I'm still in 2 minds whether to trust these guys with my car.
    What do you think?
    To be fair, they hired me a cracker of a new Astra 1.9 CDTi 150 bhp with the exterior pack when my car was in and under investigation.
    This was great until a ****er of a taxi driver nearly wiped my wife out on the back roads coming home from work 1 night.
    He was going so fast and on his phone at the time he didn't make the corner and took the side out of the poor Astra.
    Am I lucky or what? or is it my wife !

    ps I now fully support the new phone ban when driving.
