    How long you had the car?

    The guy i done the bulbs for has an 02 plate sxi 1.8 and he said it just had the timing belt changed and it sounded very bad......

    Go diesel!!!!!!! That's what i did and i will never go back to petrol. I'm on my second Vec and won't change to anything else either!!

    Thats a hell of a step down, a 3.2GSi to a 2.2 SRi... Dont bother with the 2.2, just go for the 3.2 and be done with it!
