    I wouldn't have thought a rattle is normal, is it only on start up and goes away after a few mins? Its the same Z18XE I had in my astra, that had 65k and wad as quiet as when I first had it at 10k

    Hi I have the 1.8 sxi, no rattles what so ever. I would avoid buying the car as it sounds as if its had a hard life. Go for a diesel 1.9 if you want rattles hehe.

    I wouldn't avoid it, it may just need a good oil change.....

    im thinking maybe the exhaust, reciepts show replacemnt but mentioned problem with fitting kit, maybe thats the issue.

    Thing is its the cheapest in the area and i get a 3 month warranty so if something goes wrong itll be going back

    Ive had a 1.8 veccy for nearly 3 years now and it has been no problem at all.I got it when it was a year old and had done 16,000 miles.Its now done 37,000 and still feels like new.Defo get a warranty,mine has a very miner rattle when cold on start up,but has done this since i bought it.You only really hear it when you are parked next to a wall or in an enclosed space,garage etc,you dont notice it when your in the open.Its very miner,the wife has never been able to here it so it must be ok.

    Shockingly guys, my 53 plate 1.8 is currently on 103,000 miles (bought it at 23,000 nearly 3 years ago)
    Sometimes has very slight rattle when cold, nothing major & goes when warmed up.
    Other than that, been ok & very happy with it.

    yeah this only had it on start up, 99% sure it was from under the car not from engine bay as it was not an engine bay noise.

    Going to ring up Tmrw and drop a deposit off for it, hopefully have it mon/tue
