    Default vectra sri cdti 150

    bought a vectra c last week and i must say the handling is terrible!

    anyone else find this?

    are thier coilovers available for the vectra?
    would i lose the ride comfort if i fited a set?

    what part of network q warranty would be affected?

    My vectra sri CDTi 150 handles ok in my opinion. I suppose handling is very much a personnal opinion though but I can honsetly say, mine has never caused me to question its handling abilities. As for your over questions, sorry I have no knowledge.

    I only have the 1.8Ivvt SRI but am very impressed with the handling, for such a big car it sticks to the road very well, having always had small sporty hatchbacks before I was concerned prior to getting the vecy but there was no need!

    Mine isn't even an sri, it's an active model & the suspension is standard at the mo (until next week).
    Mine handles fine too, maybe it's your driving style lol...
    There are a few different supension set ups available for the Vec, have a look on the LMF website matey.

    Think you need to get your suspension set-up checked mate, as the SRi is the best handling of the lot, bar the VXR...

    What did you drive previously..?

    Try fitting a set of Eibach's. It will lower it by around 20mm and give firmer but more sure footed handling. Having said that, the SRi should handle just fine as it is, maybe you are expecting too much from it compared to what you have been driving.
    It is a car that weighs over a ton and a half don't forget

    thanks for the replys lads but i find the back end very very light and switchy

    i tryed to drive it to work the other day and the thing didnt give me any confidence the steering is too light as well

    thats my previous car there

    shes a 2000 plate sri 2.6 v6 on standard suspension and she would ouyt handle the new car hands down

    the new car is on goodyear nct5's and the previous one had eagle f1's but i dont think that would have much to do with it tbh

    just think the new one is a crap car at corners lol!
