    Default Timing chain or belt??

    Just wanted to know, are the new Vectra c's all fitted with the lifelong timing chains now?

    I know the diesels are chain driven but what about the petrol engines?

    Just curious......

    Thanks for that...

    I was actually more curious about the 1.8 petrol... because i have one!
    I know the previous Vectra B's were belt driven, but the new 1.8 engines have the new VVT technology....so maybe they're different??

    Anyway if anyone can shed some light on that?
