    Default A few questions.......

    Im hopefully getting my new Veccy at the end of the month and have a few questions, seeing as all the past cars ive had have been used/abused not by me but previos owners, and seeing as this will be the newsest car ive had.....well you get the idea

    1] What does the VVT engine mean? ive been told its raises the BHP from 128-143 on a 1.8i...

    2] Cruise control? (sounds a daft question but....)

    3] Can you do something to the airbox.air pipes to make it breath easier?

    4] Whats the best oil to use?

    5] How easy is the installed sat nav to use?

    6] How much petrol can i fit in the tank & How far will it go?

    7] Not sure if it has a trip computer, any ideas?

    8] Best way of keeping the alloys/car clean?

    9] How easy is the engine to work on (i know a little mechanics)?

    Cant think of anymore, but im sure i will when i get it

    1] What does the VVT engine mean? ive been told its raises the BHP from 128-143 on a 1.8i... Variable valve timing

    2] Cruise control? (sounds a daft question but....) Yes will have

    3] Can you do something to the airbox.air pipes to make it breath easier? Yes, there is a little bit of plastic that can be taken out of the airbox to help airflow

    4] Whats the best oil to use?

    5] How easy is the installed sat nav to use? VX one is very very hard to retrofit, just get a Tom Tom

    6] How much petrol can i fit in the tank & How far will it go?

    7] Not sure if it has a trip computer, any ideas? What spec car have you got?

    8] Best way of keeping the alloys/car clean? A good sealant like CC Jetseal.

    9] How easy is the engine to work on (i know a little mechanics)?

    Cant think of anymore, but im sure i will when i get it

    1] What does the VVT engine mean? ive been told its raises the BHP from 128-143 on a 1.8i... Variable Valve Timing - 140 bhp

    2] Cruise control? (sounds a daft question but....) Set it and it will maintain its speed with out you touching the accelerator pedal

    3] Can you do something to the airbox.air pipes to make it breath easier? Yep, de-restrict it - check the how too's, maybe a performance panel filter too.

    4] Whats the best oil to use? long life 5-30, Vx stuff IMO

    5] How easy is the installed sat nav to use? I found it very easy, although no postcode search

    6] How much petrol can i fit in the tank & How far will it go? about £60, all depends how you drive.

    7] Not sure if it has a trip computer, any ideas? what model is it?

    8] Best way of keeping the alloys/car clean? Wash it once a week, use the megs 3 stage, ideal for the average person like me

    9] How easy is the engine to work on (i know a little mechanics)? Very hard, all electronic now

    But same idea!

    I'm pretty sure the sri has a fuel computer built in. Not sure on all of its functions, but most likely will have average consumption, instant consumption, average speed, fuel remaining.....

    Try and get a 2.2 direct, you wont regret it, no difference on the petrol, much better performance, and sat nav is always better stuck to the screen right now, much more spec'd than a dash one.
