    Default oooooh rightyyy then!!!

    Im picking up my Vec C on the 21st of this month from hylton in worcester, so before they hand me over the keys, is there anything i need to ask them?

    ie: Recalls, problems that might need doing, etc.

    Its the Vectra SRi VVT With Sat Nav on an 06 plate

    The pics of it will be up a few days later, so any more info given to me will be gratefully recived

    Also mods....whats the first best mod i can do to it?

    In my experience matey, the first thing to check is that the rear shocks aren't leaking. Vx only cover them for 3000 miles but I'm assuming that your new car will have a Network Q warranty on it.

    Any sign of leaking they should swap them out.

    Also ensure they've checked the rear camber, this is prone to move. Otherwise you're pretty safe with the Vec C matey.

    depends what sort of mods your planning, ie. styling, performance. have a look in the recalls section, dont know if theres anything particular to your car but it cant hurt to look. ifn there is just ask if its been checked.

    Only the 1.8 petrol Vectra has the VVT engine. Also available in the Astra and Zafira.

    Check very carefully, then take any future problems to Bicknells. I haven't had any good experiences with Hyltons and their 'customer service'.
