    Talking Hi People, New Member, Just UPGRADED from Zafira GSI

    Hi, Wow i love this car.....

    Ive owned a few VX cars in my time (god i sound old im only 26 )

    Corsa B 1.5D, Astra F 1.6, Cavalier Mk3 1.8, Vectra B 1.8 Facelift and Zafira GSi

    I just bought my 55 plate Facelift (Pre reg) 1.9 CDTI 150 Vectra SRi,

    It blows the Zafira away, fair enough the Zafira was quick, 200 bhp will do that but it was never a great ride, the standard GSi suspension was not lower than the rest only stiffer, so corners were a no no, again the setup was all wrong, if you tried to floor it in first or second and the road was even thinking about being damp, it would just sit and spin. then the traction control would cut it, it was a ******, it wouldnít just "Put you right" as it was meant to it would bloomin' try to drive you home OMG it was so annoying.



    but the Vectra, is definitely the best drive i have had......ever, I havenít experienced the VXR suspension setup but the handling of the SRi is Perfect, the traction control is great i hardly even notice it. The torque from the engine is also nice, it keeps pulling and pulling, (it reminds me of when i was a teenager). in my opinion it is on a par speed wise with the Zaffy, but Iíve been recommended by my dealer (i sort of know the guy) to fit a tuning box, he said with a box it would blow the GSi Zaffy away. so far i quite believe him. i mean yes the car doesnít have the soft leather steering wheel like the GSi, but the one it has got is perfect, Hard but perfect, perfect size, perfect position, and i think that sums the car up perfectly,

    anyhoo that was more of a rant than an introduction,

    im from hallglen, wife, 2 kids, and worked in IT for 7 years, so any PC problems let me know, ill give the best advice i can.


    cheers
    Pedro

    Hi, suprised you like the handling of the Vectra C. I have always thought it was poor which is why I uprated and lowered it now it drives and handles much better. Even put on the front strut as well and that has added to the improved handling. Could be your first mod?? If you like he handling now you can only imagine the improvement Brother has the GSI turbo zaffy all lowered and uprated shocks and better tyres (this makes a difference to the wheel spin or lack of it!) As for the box go for a remap instead, much better. Enjoy your new car and Vectra-c.com
