    Default Greetings!

    Hi,
    I just got a used Opel Vectra RHD 2.2 in Bangalore. I think the color code indicates "Oyster". It was bought new by a family member Oct 03 and has about 50K km on the odo.

    Reading thru some of the threads here, I think I'm going to get out the rivet gun and "seam-rivet" this car to eliminate the creaks/rattles Actually, there are no real creaks, but certainly some rattling -- at least one of which I seem to have fixed.

    BTW, Opels were sold here in India only for a couple of years and did not do too well. GM then switched over to marketing Chevys (rebadged Daewoos) and seems to have had much more success.

    My last daily driver back home in CA was a '96 A4 and the weekend driver was a self restored '80 Fiat Spider.

    I like the looks of this car and the boot space is certainly bigger than the A4. Hope to get more tips and how-tos on getting this "veccy" into shape plus share the occasional %$&$& (at the car, stealer, or at myself).

    Regards,
    Byas

    Similar story in Australia. Holden used to sell the Opel Astra, Corsa ("Barina"), Vectra, Zafira and Combo here - now the only Opel we get is the Astra. The rest have been replaced by much cheaper GM Daewoo cars

    Thanks!!!

    Just returned from the dealership -- the A/C that they had just "fixed" last week malfunctioned again. grrr...

    I asked them about some of the FRs (like the 1516, 1514 etc for creaking -- and they said there were no recalls or tech bulletins here. hmm...)

    (John35: India is 5.5 hrs ahead of GMT, and currently 4.5 hours ahead of summer daylight savings time)
